ROME (Reuters) - Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi was ordered on Thursday to stand trial on charge of judicial corruption, a legal source said. Berlusconi, leader of the centre-right Forza Italia (Go Italy!) party, is accused of having bribed a witness to give false testimony at a trial in 2013, at which he was accused of having sex with an under-aged prostitute. The trial will begin in the Tuscan city of Siena in February, the source said. (Reporting by Silvia Ognibene, writing by Gavin Jones; Editing by Isla Binnie)
