Milan, November 20 - Silvio Berlusconi's lawyer on
Tuesday said that the delay in the reporting of the kidnapping
of the ex-premier's accountant last month was due to fear.
Giuseppe Spinelli was held captive on the night of October
15-16 at his home by a gang that, according to prosecutors,
tried to extort 35 million euros from Berlusconi.
But the kidnapping was not reported until the following
day, a fact that has prompted a wave of immense speculation in
the Italian media and there have been reports that a ransom may
have been paid.
"The delay in informing the judicial authorities is
exclusively down to the highly justified fear the kidnappers
caused Spinelli, who feared serious retaliation against himself
and his family," said Berlusconi's lawyer, Niccolo' Ghedini.
"I also want to specify that Berlusconi had no role in the
affair and the decisions on the timing and methods were taken by
Spinelli and by me".
