Rai's Director-General

Utterly predictable ruling from the Italian communications watchdog Agcom: Rai director-general and former Agcom employee Alfredo Meocci is found to have violated Agcom's rules by leaving Agcom to work for Rai, which Agcom regulates. Professor Alessandro Pace submitted a brief to the Rai administrative council on just this issue, but the centre-right members of this council found their own legal experts who argued differently. With extremely slight licence fee settlements, Rai doesn't need the extra cost which the fines connected with the case represent.
