Quarto mayor in wiretap, 'I can't take this anymore'

'I won't go to prison for someone else's fault'

Quarto mayor in wiretap, 'I can't take this anymore'

Naples, January 11 - Police on Monday released a wiretap conversation from December 16 between Rosa Capuozzo, the mayor of Quarto, near Naples, and local anti-establishment 5-Star Movement leader Alessandro Nicolais, in which the beleaguered mayor says that she will leave her position before "ending up in prison for someone else". Neither Nicolais nor Capuozzo are under investigation, but police are probing suspected Camorra mafia infiltration of the Capuozzo administration. "I can't take it anymore, it's over," Capuozzo is heard telling Nicolais in the December 16 wiretap. "I can take anything, but I won't end up in prison for someone else's fault. It's unacceptable. Otherwise I'll leave," she said in the wiretap. "I fought for the threats over the house; I said: take down this (expletive) house," Capuozzo said, referring to alleged building irregularities in a home owned by her husband's family. "I'm not taking a step back. I've been threatened for everything," she said. In the wiretap, Nicolais is heard responding, "Fico answered 10 minutes ago, he wrote me: go ahead calmly. I'll come down as soon as I can," referring to M5S MP Roberto Fico. On Monday, police searched the offices of the town council at Quarto as well as the homes of Nicolais and Capuozzo following the wiretaps, which police say contradict Capuozzo's previous statements that she hadn't been subject to blackmail. Police are looking for both hard copy and digital documents that Capuozzo and Nicolais may have that could help investigators piece together the events under investigation. M5S recently ejected former city councillor Giovanni De Robbio from the movement for his involvement in the probe for mafia association. Capuozzo is resisting calls from all sides for her to step down. The anti-euro M5S prides itself on being an outsider to what it says is the corrupt, conniving political system in Italy, where it is currently the second-largest party after Premier Matteo Renzi's Democratic Party (PD).
