Perugia Chief Prosecutor Raffaele Cantone and National Anti-mafia Prosecutor Giovanni Melillo have asked to report to the head of two parliamentary commissions over a case of allegedly spying by a policeman on a number of high-profile politicians and celebrities that has sparked alarm.
    Finance police officer Pasquale Striano is accused of illegally accessing the data of a wide range of public figures while he was deployed at the National Anti-mafia Prosecutor's Department.
    These include Defence Minister Guido Crosetto, Business Minister Adolfo Urso, Agriculture Minister Francesco Lollobrigida, Labour Minister Marina Elvira Calderone, Environment and Energy Security Minister Gilberto Pichetto Fratin, Silvio Berlusconi's former partner and MP Marta Fascina, ex-premiers Giuseppe Conte and Matteo Renzi, pop star Fedez, soccer great Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.
    Melillo and Cantone have asked to report to the president of the parliamentary anti-mafia commission and the head of the parliamentary committee for the security of the republic, as well as to the judiciary's self-governing body, the CSM.
    Prosecutors believe that some of the data allegedly obtained by Striano via illegal access to databases was used for journalist purposes, sources said.
    Indeed, a number of journalists are among around 15 people under investigation in relation to the case.
    Other data may have been passed on to a private investigator or used by Striano for personal purposes.
    Deputy Premier and Transport Minister Matteo Salvini's League party called for the present and past heads of the finance police and the National Anti-mafia Prosecutor's Department to report on the case.
    "We are faced with an attack on the Republic and on democracy," the League said.
