Roberto Traversini speaking at the Friday morning press conference during which he announced his resignation
Roberto Traversini announced his resignation as mayor of Differdange during a Friday morning press conference.
According to our colleagues at Paperjam, Traversini had called the press conference following accusations made by the DP, LSAP and Dei Lénk. The parties had signed a joint document in which they criticised the grounds by which Traversini (Green party) acquired his Differdange house, namely that work was initially done without proper authorisation but was later covered through an a posteriori authorisation.
During the press conference, the teary-eyed Traversini stated that the decision had been made in consultation with his family.
Traversini had worked for the city since 2005 and had taken on his latest mandate 5 years ago.
