Italy arrests 12 more in T.Italia wiretap case

MILAN, March 22 (Reuters) – Italian authorities have arrested 12 more people in connection with an investigation into illegal wiretapping by Telecom Italia (TLIT.MI: Quote, Profile, Research) staff and others, judicial sources told Reuters on Thursday.

The investigation began last year, and in September magistrates arrested several people including Telecom Italia’s former head of security, Giuliano Tavaroli.

Magistrates accuse those arrested of illegally obtaining information through wiretapping and computer hacking.

Those arrested on Thursday are mainly police officers who, magistrates suspect, participated in the illegal activities, the sources said.
