Milan, November 12 - A witness called to testify
for the defense of Silvio Berlusconi who claimed to be a
frequent guest of the ex-premier at his private villa said on
Monday that post-dinner performances were "erotic but not
sexual".
Cuban Liza Barizonte said that dances organized at the
media magnate's residence were "theatrical and entertaining" and
that the dancers often dressed as "Arabs, little girls and
nurses".
Barizonte was called to the Milan court to testify in
hearings against the ex-premier who is accused of paying for sex
with Karima 'Ruby' El Mahroug, an underage Moroccan runaway and
nightclub dancer.
He is also being charged with alleged abuse of power
involving a telephone call he made to a police station where
Mahroug was being detained in May 2011 over a theft accusation.
Berlusconi reportedly told police that Mahroug was a
relative of former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.
Barizonte told the court that she met Berlusconi in 2009 at
the San Siro stadium in Milan and that he had been transferring
2,500 euros monthly to her bank account since last March.
Barizonte testified that she had slept numerous times at
the ex-premier's home.
Prosecutors claim Berlusconi had sex with 33 prostitutes
at his villa in Arcore near Milan over the course of several
months.
Berlusconi, who says his parties were innocent and
"elegant" affairs, has stressed that both he and Ruby deny
having sex, and has quipped "33 women in two months is too many
even for someone who likes pretty girls, like me".
