MILAN Oct 1 A Milan court has ordered 13 former
and current managers at Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena
, Nomura and Deutsche Bank to stand
trial for alleged financial crimes, legal sources said on
The allegations centre on two complex derivatives trades,
known as Santorini and Alexandria, which Monte Paschi's former
management arranged with Deutsche Bank and Nomura to conceal
losses at Italy's third largest lender, prosecutors have said.
The case also involves a hybrid financial instrument called
Fresh 2008 which Monte dei Paschi used at the time to partly
fund the acquisition of rival bank Antonveneta.
