Prosecutor appeals acquittal of Berlusconi, other defendants


(ANSA) - Milan, October 15 - Rome's prosecutor is appealing
the acquittal last summer of former Premier Silvio Berlusconi,
his son Pier Silvio Berlusconi, and other defendants in a case
of alleged fraud at a subsidiary of his Mediaset broadcasting
The appeal to Italy's Supreme Court was filed Monday by
prosecutor Fabio De Pasquale in Milan.
It comes after a preliminary hearings judge in Rome last
June declared that the case against Berlusconi and 10 others had
been timed out under the statute of limitations.
Berlusconi has already been acquitted of a similar case in
Milan, also concerning alleged wrongdoing in the trading of film
rights by the Mediatrade subsidiary.
The other defendants in this case include Egyptian-born
director and producer Frank Agrama.
In this and several other previous trials, Berlusconi has
always denied wrongdoing, claiming he is the victim of a
minority group of allegedly left-wing prosecutors and judges who
he says are persecuting him for political reasons.
In more than a dozen cases, the ex-premier has never
received a definitive conviction, sometimes because of law
changes passed by his governments, while some other charges were
timed out.
