Milano, November 19 - Psychologists examining
Karima 'Ruby' El Mahroug, the Moroccan runaway and nightclub
dancer at the center of the trial of Silvio Berlusconi for
alleged sex with her when she was underage and alleged abuse of
power said on Monday that she demonstrated a form of autism
linked to "a very high level of psychological stress".
Written reports by state psychologist Maria Teresa Napoli
said that El Mahroug "escaped into an imaginary world to flee
from reality as a defense mechanism".
Napoli, who was called by the ex-premier's defense team,
treated El Mahroug at the Badolato community center in the
southern city of Catanzaro where she stayed as an adolescent.
The psychologist who conducted approximately 20 interviews
with El Mahroug described Ruby as a "smart and sharp girl" but
who was "torn between a modern culture and that of her father".
Napoli told prosecutors that El Marhoug's "lies were due
in part to her conflicted personality and form of autism".
