Gravina investigated in Rome for self-laundering, interrogated at his request

The president of the FIGC, Gabriele Gravina, is under investigation by the Rome prosecutor's office.

The formal entry in the register with the accusation of self-laundering took place at the same time as the interrogation began which had been requested by the number one in via Allegri himself to “clarify his position”. The confrontation with the investigators, which lasted about an hour, took place as part of the investigation initiated by the National Anti-Mafia Directorate into alleged illicit activities carried out by Gravina . “

Due to the intolerable exploitations and distorting reconstructions of the truth of the facts that have called him into question in recent days, even though he was not under investigation, Gravina asked to be heard to clarify his position and the circumstances of which he was the victim”, they say the lawyers Leo Mercurio and Fabio Viglione. The report of the interrogation will therefore end in the procedure in which the investigator must line up a series of pieces and untie some knots. The chief prosecutor Francesco Lo Voi, however, has scheduled a meeting with the owners of the procedure which will serve to outline a sort of 'road map' of the steps to be taken.

The object of the proceeding concerns various aspects of alleged irregularities: from the assignment of the 2018 tender for the thematic channel of the Lega Pro football team to Isg Ginko, to the blurred sale of a collection of ancient books in the availability of Gravina as well as the purchase of an apartment in Milan from the number one of the Football Federation. Precisely this last piece of the file will be carefully evaluated by the investigators in relation to the question of territorial jurisdiction and on a possible transmission of the proceedings to the Milanese prosecutor's office. At the moment no timetable has been drawn up regarding possible further hearings or summons and to date there are no scheduled meetings between the Capitoline prosecutors and those of Perugia, where the financier Pasquale Striano and the prosecutor of the Perugia are under investigation for abuse of office and forgery. DNA, Antonio Laudati.

According to the Umbrian prosecutors' accusation, Striano received a “tip-off” about the awarding of the Lega Pro contract and then made a series of accesses to retrieve further information on Gravina, who in recent months was heard as a witness in Perugia. The Gdf lieutenant, “in agreement with Laudati, would have prepared an information for the magistrates claiming to have received them as information elements coming from the Salerno Prosecutor's Office (detail later found to be false, ed.) and acquired by the latter in the context of own investigative activities”. The Umbrian investigators, after having ascertained Striano's unauthorized access, nevertheless evaluated the opportunity of sending the documents to Rome in order to verify any illicit acts and in particular the role played by Gravina in his capacity, at the time of the facts, as president of the Pro League.
