Italy prosecutor asks two years jail for Pirelli's Tronchetti Provera
MILAN (Reuters) - An Italian prosecutor has asked for two years imprisonment for businessman Marco Tronchetti Provera in a case involving the alleged use of Telecom Italia (TLIT.MI) data to snoop on Italy's elite.
In a court hearing on Monday, the prosecutor also asked for a fine of 5,000 euros to be imposed on the businessman.
A lawyer representing Tronchetti said the prosecutor's charges were "lacunous and contradictory".
Tronchetti, who is head of tire maker Pirelli (PECI.MI), headed Telecom Italia from 2001 to 2006.
