Berlusconi to face trial
Text size Aa Aa

A judge in Milan has ruled that the former Italian prime minister and 13 other people should stand trial for alleged corruption. The decision follows preliminary hearings into claims of tax fraud, embezzlement, fake accounting and money laundering in a television rights deal.

The case centres on Silvio Berlusconi’s Mediaset company. He denies any wrongdoing. Allegations are also being made against a British lawyer who is the estranged husband of Britain’s culture minister. The trial is reportedly due to start in November.
