The delightfully named Soren Bo Sondergaard, a Danish MEP, has written in a report that some of the EU funds designated for rebuilding the city of l'Aquila after the earthquake in 2009 may have gone to companies with ties to organised crime.
Imagine, Soren! (or is it Bo?). Corruption! In Italy!
Even more surprisingly, Brussels has denied it, not believing that such a thing could happen.
It really does make you wonder.
