SIENA (Reuters) - Italian bank Monte dei Paschi di Siena
Morelli was appointed in the top position of Italy's third biggest bank, which is seeking to raise up to 5 billion euros in fresh funds from investors to avert the risk of being wound down, on Sept 14.
Less than a week before the bank had abruptly announced that his predecessor Fabrizio Viola was stepping down.
Morelli, a former chief financial officer at the Tuscan bank, was fined by the Bank of Italy in 2013 for his alleged role in misleading regulators over the true nature of a hybrid financial instrument the bank used to partially fund its acquisition of regional rival Antonveneta.
He denies any wrongdoing, is appealing the fine and a judicial investigation against him over the same allegations has been dropped.
