Several days after the document seizure, Mondomarine’s Guiseppe Dilorenzo, CEO, appeared in court to answer questions related to bankruptcy, fraud and false accounts for the years 2014 through 2016. Questions also revolved around abuse of credit resulting from invoices for non-existing transactions and diversion of funds from company accounts. Prosecutors have not revealed the content of the interrogatory and have indicated other key officials will also be interrogated.

Mondomarine has laid off 57 employees in the Savona shipyard and 33 workers in its Pisa production site. The entire situation threatens the future of Mondomarine.
