Italian Police Seize Atlantia Board Records

The Financial Times reports, “Italy’s financial police have seized board meeting minutes from the Rome offices of Atlantia, whose subsidiary operated the Genoa bridge that collapsed last year. . . . The company [today] confirmed the raid and said police had taken documents relating to board meetings of the past 10 years. One senior police official said that the aim of the search, which took place [yesterday], was to determine how any safety problems involving the Morandi bridge had been brought to the board’s attention.” The article notes that there are calls for Atlantia to make public an internal report on the bridge’s condition. The Financial Times revealed the existence of the report earlier this week.
