Milan, November 9 - Three young women testifying
in a Milan court Friday admitted to receiving sums regularly
from former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, but denied
they were related to prostitution activities.
Prosecutors say Berlusconi allegedly had sex with 33
prostitutes at his Arcore villa in northern Italy over the
course of several months.
One of the alleged prostitutes at the centre of the sex
procurement scandal is Karima 'Ruby' El Mahroug, a Moroccan-born
belly dancer who was underage at the time.
Ioana Visan, who reportedly took part in the evenings at
Berlusconi's Arcore villa, said she received about 2,000 euros a
month from the businessman-turned-politician.
Similar information was provided by Aris Espinoza who says
Berlusconi sent her monthly bank transfers of about 2,500 euros.
Espinoza was answering questions by Judge Annamaria Gatto.
Visan told prosecutor Antonio Sangermano that whilst
Berlusconi provided guests with cash at the parties, these were
not "payments for sexual acts".
During the proceedings Elisa Toti, a presenter on
Berlusconi's private television network Mediaset, told the court
that she received 2,500 euros a month from the ex-premier
starting January 2011.
"Berlusconi also helped me by lending me a deposit on a
house and he is also helping me to pay my mortgage," she said.
