Italy’s Salvini says might back revoking Atlantia’s motorway license

Published

The head of Italy’s opposition League party, Matteo Salvini, said on Thursday he would back any move to strip Atlantia of its motorway concession if there were the legal grounds to do so.

Italy’s government is considering withdrawing the license held by the Benetton-controlled group after a bridge in Genoa operated by its unit Autostrade per l’Italia (ASPI) collapsed in August 2018, killing 43 people.

“If they decide to revoke the concession, we will support that adding that the decision would have to have a legal grounding.

“The important thing is that they need to make a decision, accusing the coalition of dragging its feet over the issue,’’ he said.

Atlantia has denied any wrongdoing and warned the government it would challenge any attempt to revoke the license in the courts.
