A jury acquitted all five defendants of murder charges in the 1982 death of Italian financier Roberto Calvi.
Calvi's body was found hanging from London's Blackfriars Bridge, with rocks and cash stuffed into his suit. The death was first ruled a suicide by London police, but Calvi's family pressed for further investigation and eventually Italian prosecutors brought murder charges against the five defendants.
None of the defendants was in the high-security courtroom on the outskirts of Rome when the judge read the verdict, reached after 1Ѕ days of deliberation.
Prosecutors had asked for life sentences for four defendants, but said a fifth should be acquitted for insufficient evidence.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
