ITALY TOP COURT TO SHAPE BERLUSCONI’S POLITICAL FATE

0

ROME: Italy’s Supreme Court meets on Tuesday to examine a fraud trial against Silvio Berlusconi which could see him ousted from politics and risks upsetting the country’s fragile coalition government. The court will rule on whether to uphold a tax fraud conviction against the former premier and confirm the one-year prison sentence and a five-year ban from public office, which would effectively end his 20-year political career.
