Key facts on Roberto Calvi murder trial

06 Oct 2005

Source: Reuters

Oct 6 (Reuters) - The trial of four Italian men and an Austrian woman for the murder of Italian banker Roberto Calvi began on Thursday in Rome.

Here are some key facts on the trial.

* Roberto Calvi, once thought to have committed suicide, was found hanging under London's Blackfriars Bridge in June 1982 with bricks in his pockets and $15,000 on his person.

* A British coroner initially ruled his death a suicide, but a second coroner later recorded an open verdict.

* Shortly before Calvi's hanging, the bank he headed at the time, Banco Ambrosiano, had gone bankrupt. It was then Italy's largest private banking group and worked with the Vatican.

* In 2003, Rome prosecutors said Calvi did not commit suicide as originally thought. Their investigation has focused on millions of dollars that flowed through the bank's offshore accounts in the weeks leading up to Calvi's death.

* Prosecutors concluded that the Mafia killed Calvi for stealing from them and from Italian financier Licio Gelli. Gelli was the head of the P2 lodge -- a shadowy Masonic organisation whose members once included prominent politicians, businessmen and military officers.

* In April, a Rome court indicted four people: convicted Cosa Nostra treasurer Pippo Calo, Ernesto Diotallevi, Sardinian financier Flavio Carboni, and his ex-girlfriend Manuela Kleinszig. A fifth man, Silvano Vittor, was later indicted.
