Italian daily Corriere della Sera is reported that investigators will question Tanzi tomorrow [Tuesday]. She headed up the Parmatour holiday company. Former Parmalat finance boss Fausto Tonno is reported to have informed investigators that Tanzi’s daughter had known about the diversion of funds from the company for at least five years.
