(see previous) Milan, November 12 - Defense
lawyers for Silvio Berlusconi said on Monday that Karima 'Ruby'
El Mahroug, the underage Moroccan runaway and nightclub dancer
the ex-premier is accused of paying for sex with, will be called
to testify in his defense.
Berlusconi is also being tried for alleged abuse of power,
regarding a telephone call he made to a police station in May
2010 to ask about Mahroug, detained over a theft accusation and
who he said was a relative of former Egyptian president Hosni
Mubarak.
Mahroug will be called to the Milan courtroom on December
10 or 17.
In October, Mahroug told Italian television that she would
testify willingly.
"I'm the lightning rod of this trial and they should call
on me. I can't wait, and when they do, I'll go".
Both Ruby and Berlusconi deny having sex.
The charge of having sex with an underage prostitute
carries a jail term of up to three years, and abuse of office 12
years.
Actor George Clooney and Real Madrid's Portugal striker
Cristiano Ronaldo are on "stand by" and may be called to testify
after Ruby.
