Roberto Maroni is an italian politician. He is a prominent member of Lega Nord (seeking independence of the north region of Italy), MP since 1992.
He’s been appointed Senior Minister in various occasion, and in different areas. He is famous for his passion for music (plays keyboards with a band called Area 51), and for having admitted illegal music downloads.
He is in the news today because he has been questioned by a Court about a € 60.000,00 ($ 90.000,00) payment received from a private company. Maroni, who graduated as a lawyer, told the magistrates that the money was the fee for a legal advise. That he didn’t give.
The media confirm that in the question there is nothing against the law. That is good. I just ask myself if nobody has ever heard of the word “ethic“. It comes from ancient greek. Too ancient, maybe.
