NAPLES, Italy – Italian judicial police in the Licola suburb of Naples are conducting random inspections of residential buildings to verify tax records, U.S. housing officials said.

The inspectors are ensuring that documents accurately reflect the number of rooms in the house, said Israel Melendez, housing director at the U.S. Navy base in Naples.

American and NATO personnel don’t have to show the inspectors anything other than their lease documents, if the inspectors request them, and should refer anything else to their landlord or the housing office, Melendez said.
