Aide 'Reported Follieri To Fbi'
LATEST: ANNE HATHAWAY's ex-boyfriend RAFFAELLO FOLLIERI's administrative assistant reported him to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), according to new reports.
Follieri, 30, pleaded guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and money laundering in a Manhattan Federal court last week (10Sep08).
According to recently released court documents, the unnamed aide informed agents that Follieri kept a safe stuffed with financial and business records in his $37,000 (GBP20,000)-a-month New York apartment.
Federal agents raided Follieri's home and seized the safe on 15 July (08) - just weeks after his split from Hathaway.
According to the New York Post, the safe's contents have not been disclosed, but a black folder underneath it contained documents in English and Italian, emblazoned with the words "Dal Vaticano".
Follieri admitted misappropriating at least $2.4 million (GBP1.3million) of investors' money, sending it to foreign personal bank accounts that were disguised as business accounts, and using the funds for his own expenses.
He is due to be sentenced on 3 October (08) and faces a minimum of five years in jail.
