Grant Thornton: Parmalat auditors to stand trial

Two of Italian food giant Parmalat’s former auditors are to stand trial over their alleged role in the financial scandal that struck the firm last year.

Former Grant Thornton employees Maurizio Bianchi and Lorenzo Penca are to be prosecuted for market-rigging, a Milan court ruled on Tuesday. The pair are the first to be indicted over the Parmalat scandal
