Indictment Sought for Italy's Berlusconi
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/italy_berlusconi

ROME - Prosecutors in Milan said Friday they have requested that Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi be indicted on corruption charges.

The premier is accused of ordering the payment in 1997 of at least $600,000 to British lawyer David Mills whose indictment also was being sought in exchange for his false testimony in two trials against Berlusconi. Both men deny the allegations.

A judge must now rule on the indictment requests. Prosecutors said there was no indication of when a decision on the indictments would come. Such decisions have been known to take weeks.

Prosecutors have said they had rushed to complete the investigation and to try to bring the case to trial after Parliament passed a reform, backed by Berlusconi's government, that reduced the statute of limitations on the charges.

2. This is not a surprise...
He has been the subject of many investigations for corruption and all sorts of other crimes. I am ashamed that he is my Prime Minister. Hopefully, with the new elections coming up, he will leave.
