Industrialist Arrested In Banco Ambrosiano Case

April 11, 1988

MILAN, Italy (AP) _ A 77-year-old Milan industrialist has been served with an arrest warrant in connection with Italy’s biggest postwar banking scandal, the 1982 collapse of Banco Ambrosiano, Italian newspapers reported.

The reports on Sunday said Anna Bonomi Bolchini, financier and member of a noted Milanese family, was told that because of her age she would not be jailed while the probe continues but instead must report once a week to Milan police.

She was reportedly charged with complicity in fraudulent bankruptcy.

The reports charged that Roberto Calvi, president of the bank, transferred several million dollars into a Swiss bank account held by Bonomi Bolchini shortly before Banco Ambrosiano’s collapse.

Calvi’s body was found hanging under a London bridge in June 1982.
