Laura Bovoli, mother of former premier Matteo Renzi, was acquitted by the Cuneo court from the accusation of complicity in documentary fraudulent bankruptcy for a Cuneo-based company, Direkta srl. The judges’ decision came after an hour in the council chamber. Bovoli was not present in the courtroom. The process was linked to the bankruptcy, in 2012, of Direkta which dealt with the distribution of flyers and advertising for large-scale distribution. Bovoli was at the helm at the time of “Eventi6” in Rignano sull’Arno, a company that received contracts from large supermarket chains.
‘Eventi6’ also relied on Direkta for distribution, which in turn subcontracted the delivery of promotional brochures. The accusation according to the Prosecutor of Cuneo was of having ‘collaborated’ with the owner of Direkta Mirko Provenzato (who had bargained for bankruptcy some time ago) in falsifying the accounts of the Cuneo company. Lawyers Stefano Bagnera and Dora Bisson, defenders of Bovoli and another defendant (also acquitted), clarified that the letters contested by the Prosecutor had no influence on Direkta’s accounting and, therefore, on the bankruptcy.
