Valle D’Aosta Governor Antonio Fosson has been placed under investigation for alleged vote-trading linked to a mafia group, sources said Friday.

The Turin-based probe is looking into alleged influence by the Calabrian-based ‘Ndrangheta in the 2018 elections in the northwestern region.

Other local and regional councillors have also been placed under investigation as part of the probe.
