Briatore linked with bribe probe

(GMMf1NET) A link has been made between Renault chief Flavio Briatore and an investigation into an allegedly corrupt tax lawyer.

David Mills, who is married to British cabinet minister Tessa Jowell, is being investigated by prosecutors who say he accepted a bribe from Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi.

The link with Briatore, 55, is that some of the funds channeled to Mills were sent through a company set up by the lawyer, but owned by him.

''I was obviously a bit annoyed at this,'' Briatore – a client of David Mills – is quoted as saying in the British 'Guardian' newspaper.

But Mills told the 'paper that the company's directors – including Flavio – 'knew precisely' about the workings of the company.
