Silvio Berlusconi arrested


Silvio Berlusconi’s so-called “bunga-bunga parties” have a consequence: the Milan prosecutor’s office is seeking a six-year prison sentence for Italy’s former prime minister.

In the corruption case surrounding Silvio Berlusconi’s so-called “Bunga-Bunga parties”, the prosecutor’s office in Italy has requested a six-year prison sentence for the former prime minister. Prosecutors in Milan also demanded the confiscation of 10.8m euros. The 85-year-old suspect is accused, among other things, of bribing witnesses.

The case concerns celebrations with young women more than a decade ago, known as “bunga bunga parties.” The Milan case is the third after the 2010 scandal. Berlusconi had already been accused of abuse of power and incitement to prostitution by minors, and was eventually acquitted for lack of evidence.

Were witnesses pressured to make false statements?

The present case concerns whether Berlusconi encouraged young women to make false statements in court. The media entrepreneur denies the allegations.

Prosecutor Tiziana Siciliano recently accused Forza Italia’s party leader of keeping harem women and “paid sex slaves” at her celebrations. Berlusconi’s decision, now an “old and sick man,” has made history regardless of the outcome of the case.

Prison sentence sought for other defendants

In addition to the politician, 27 more were charged, including one of the girls at the celebration. She named herself Ruby Rubacuori and named Berlusconi’s “Ruby” works she. The prosecutor is seeking several years in prison for himself and other defendants, including parliamentarian Maria Rosaria Rossi.

According to the Ansa news agency, Berlusconi’s lawyer Federico Cecconi has been acquitted. “No crime,” he said. At the end of 2021, a court in Siena acquitted Berlusconi of bribing witnesses in the Ruby case. On Wednesday, leaders of the centre-right party bloc voiced their support for Berlusconi.
