Berlusconi’s trials: can he survive ?
Last week, Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi appeared in a first of a series of trials, focusing on suspicions of corruption in one of his media companies. This coming Wednesday, another trial is set to begin in Milan, this one on allegations that the 74-year-old prime minister paid for sex with an underage prostitute and abused his power by getting her released from police custody. Could she cause Berlusconi to lose his post?
