    (ANSAmed) - Riace, October 2 - Riace Mayor Domenico Lucano was put under house arrest on Tuesday in relation to allegations of aiding illegal immigration, prosecutors said. The arrest warrant, performed by finance police, also referred to alleged wrongdoing over the direct assignment of trash-collection services without a public tender. Lucano's administration of the town in the southern region of Calabria has been frequently lauded by commentators for the way migrants were integrated into the local community and made a positive contribution to it. Lucano'a partner, Tesfahun Lemlem, is accused of the same charges and has been banned from living in the area.
