Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As of 18:30 local time today Prodi has yet to be officially informed he is under investigation. The chief prosecutor of Catanzaro, Mariano Lombardo, informed the press today at 13:30 that if Prodi had been officially inserted in the register of persons under investigation, he was not aware of it. This is against procedure as the chief prosecutor should first be informed of an alleged action taken by a subordinate investigative judge in his district. The investigative judge, Luigi de Magistris, in charge of the case in which Prodi is allegedly involved is still irreperable as of yesterday.

The two judges are notoriously at odds with one another over the conduct of several cases.
