Milan, February 8 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi
will make a 'spontaneous declaration' in his appeal trial
regarding a one-year sentence for tax fraud on film rights for
his Mediaset TV group in a court hearing requested for March 1,
his lawyers have said.
The media mogul and leader of the centre-right coalition
was due to appear before judges on Friday.
However on Thursday he asked for the hearing to be
postponed until next month for reasons of legitimate impediment
due to campaign commitments in the run-up to parliamentary
elections on February 24 and 25.
His two defense lawyers also failed to show up at the
Friday hearing allegedly due to campaign commitments in their
bid for election with the ex-premier's People of Freedom party
(PdL).
The judges have yet to rule on on the postponement request.
Berlusconi is conducting a media blitz and increasing
public appearances ahead of the polls as his centre-right
formation narrows the gap on the centre-left grouping led by the
Democratic Party (Pd), currently in the lead.
