Berlusconi 'tried to cover up fling with Moroccan-born teenage dancer'

London , Wed, 15 Jun 2011 ANI

London, June 15 (ANI): Prosecutors have claimed that Italian Prime Minister ilvio Berlusconi tried to cover up his relationship with a teenage nightclub dancer Karima El Mahroug, in what amounted to a 'military attack'.


The claim came at the resumption of the trial in which he is accused of paying the young woman for sex.


Berlusconi has been accused of abusing his office by telephoning a Milan police station and putting officers under pressure to release Mahroug, known by her stage name as Ruby the Heart Stealer, from arrest on a charge of theft.


He then allegedly sent two associates to collect the 17-year-old Mahroug from the police station: Nicole Minetti, an Anglo-Italian showgirl whom his party elevated into politics, and Michelle Conceicao, a Brazilian starlet, who was known to Berlusconi.


"It was a military attack, an encirclement, and it was all directed towards the police station," the Telegraph quoted Ilda Boccassini, the lead prosecutor in the case, as saying.


Prosecutors claim that the Prime Minister, 74, was terrified that the she would spill the beans on their relationship and that he did all he could to extricate her from questioning.


The Moroccan-born dancer, who recently told a magazine that she was pregnant by her nightclub owner boyfriend, also insists that she never slept with the billionaire tycoon. (ANI)
