PAOLA (CS) – Massimo Ferrero was arrested in Milan and taken to the San Vittore prison for the crash of 4 companies in the hotel, tourism and cinema sector based in the province of Cosenza. The companies, from what has been learned, were declared bankrupt a few years ago.
One of the companies involved is the ‘Ellemme group Srl’, a company that according to the magistrates would have taken on as a whole a debt of over one million and 200 thousand euros that various companies of the group had towards Rai Cinema Spa, “thus renouncing to collect the receivables it claimed from Rai Cinema Spa without requesting any consideration and without agreeing interest-payments”. A move that, we read in the papers “caused the failure of the company Ellemme Group Srl ‘.” There are three charges that reconstruct the story.
The sole director of ‘Ellemme’ turns out to be Vanessa Ferrero, but the president of Sampdoria, says the prosecutor, is the de facto administrator. According to the investigations, Ferrero himself also appears to have been sole director of ‘Global Media srl’ over the years, chairman of the board of ‘Mediaport spa’ and sole director of ‘Mediaport Cinemas Srl’, while his daughter was also sole director of ‘Ferrero Cinemas srl’. As for the first episode, Ellemme would have assumed a total debt of 806 thousand euros that Global Media srl, Mediaport Spa and Ferrero Cinemas had vis-à-vis Rai Cinema; in the second charge, the debt that ends up on Ellemme’s shoulders is almost 209 thousand euros (contracted by Mediaport srl and Mediaport Cinema) while in the third it amounts to over 239 thousand accumulated by Mediaport Cinema and Ferrero Cinemas.
Vanessa Ferrero allegedly subtracted over 740 thousand euros
Vanessa Ferrero allegedly subtracted over 740 thousand from the company’s coffers to “procure an unfair profit for oneself or others and harm creditors”. This is what the Gip of the court of Paola writes in one of the charges against the daughter of Massimo Ferrero, placed under house arrest as part of the investigation that brought the president of Sampdoria to prison. From January 2011 to December 2012, the ordinance reads, “with ripetual withdrawals from bank current accounts in the availability of Ellemme Group Srl, both in cash and by check, it diverted the amount of 740,520 euros “.
