BT Italia CEO, COO suspended - report

Friday 30 September 2016 | 10:21 CET | News
British Telecom (BT) has suspended the two leading executives of its Italian unit following the launch of an internal investigation, reports Bloomberg. The suspension of BT Italia CEO Gianluca Cimini and chief operating officer Stefania Truzzoli followed an internal audit into the conduct of the executives by the parent company, which has declined to comment on the matter. However, unnamed sources cited by the Daily Telegraph said the probe has so far uncovered no evidence of financial irregularities.
