Rome, March 11 - Senator Sergio De Gregorio
publicly confessed to illegally accepting two million euros from
former premier Silvio Berlusconi but denied it was a bribe to
switch sides from the centre left to the centre right.
When asked what Berlusconi received in exchange for the
money, De Gregorio said, "nothing," and that the money went
towards his foundation but was not declared.
"If they had given it to me in a transparent way, I would
have declared it, just as I did with another million euros," he
said after exiting a hearing with prosecutors in Rome.
De Gregorio, who prosecutors said had already admitted to
receiving bribes, defected from the centre left during Romano
Prodi's 2006-2008 government and eventually joined Berlusconi's
party.
De Gregorio, who police say came forward in December, was
suspected of accepting up to three million euros in payback.
