An Italian judge has rejected a prosecutors' request to seize around $222m of funds from JP Morgan as part of an investigation into Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena's acquisition of a smaller rival, a source with direct knowledge of the matter said.

Reuters reports that prosecutors allege that JP Morgan withheld information from Italian regulators about a $1.4bn financing the bank arranged for Monte Paschi's takeover of regional lender Antonveneta in 2008.

The source did not say why the prosecutors had requested the asset seizure.
