Did he fall - or was he pushed ?

The mysterious death of an executive who worked for the world's oldest bank is to be re-examined after Italian prosecutors ordered that his body be exhumed.

The Daily Telegraph reports that David Rossi, who was the head of communications for Monte dei Paschi di Siena bank, which was founded in 1472, died after falling - or being pushed - from a third floor window of the bank's headquarters in a 14th century palazzo in the Tuscan city of Siena.

His death in March 2013 came at a time when the bank was pushed close to the brink of collapse over a scandal involving the loss of hundreds of millions of euros through risky investments.

An initial post-mortem found that Mr Rossi, 51, had killed himself, but his family strongly suspect that he was murdered because he knew too much about the bank’s shady financial deals.
