Protests in Italian Parliament

Text size Aa Aa

Italy’s two parliamentary chambers have been suspended prompting a protest by members of the Five Star party.

They showed their opposition to the decision by taking off their jackets in breach of the chamber’s dress code.

Leaders of Silvio Berlusconi’s People of Freedom party called for the suspension in protest against a Supreme Court ruling on the Berlusconi tax fraud appeal.
