Berlusconi in sex probe

Social Share

ROME – Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is being investigated over his dealings with a 17-year-old nightclub dancer.
Berlusconi is suspected of abusing his power by trying to have the Moroccan girl – known by her stage name Ruby – released from a police cell.
Some reports say the probe includes allegations of underage prostitution.
Lawyers for the 74-year-old prime minister dismissed the claims as “absurd and groundless”.
They said the allegations had already been refuted by all witnesses and people directly involved.
Berlusconi has previously admitted calling the police on her behalf, but says he did nothing wrong.
Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reported that prosecutors would investigate whether Berlusconi had made the call in order to hide his use of underage prostitutes. (BBC)
