Berlusconi discharged from hospital

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 24 – Silvio Berlusconi was discharged from
a Milan hospital Wednesday after undergoing routine tests since
Monday morning.
    The ex-premier was in hospital because of “health problems”, his
lawyer, Federico Cecconi, told a court hearing in Milan earlier
on Wednesday.
    Sources close to the media billionaire and centre-right Forza
Italia leader’s family said he was in Milan’s San Raffaele
hospital and his condition was relatively good.
    The 84-year-old was seriously ill with COVID-19 last year and
then had another spell in hospital due to a heart problem.
    Despite Berlusconi being in hospital, his lawyer did not present
a request for the so-called Ruby Ter trial to be postponed due
to a ‘legitimate impediment’
Berlusconi is accused of bribing witnesses to lie about his
alleged bunga bunga sex parties.
    It is the third trial to stem from the case of a Moroccan
runaway, nightclub dancer and prostitute named Ruby
Heartstealer.
    Berlusconi was acquitted of paying for sex with her while she
was underage after a court found he could not have known how old
she was.
    Ruby, whose real name is Karima El Mahroug, was allegedly paid
by Berlusconi to deny prosecutors’ claims the parties were
orgies where sex was paid for.
    But she is not among the 29 defendants in the current trial
which include Berlusconi and several young women he allegedly
bribed to say the parties were innocent affairs. (ANSA).
