Milan, March 11 - A Milan court on Monday ordered
medical inspectors to check on Silvio Berlusconi's condition
after the hospitalised ex-premier failed to attend a hearing of
a trail into allegations he paid to have sex with an underage
prostitute.
The court ordered a similar check following a request from
prosecutors on Friday, when the trial was adjourned after the
76-year-old media magnate was taken into Milan's San Raffaele
hospital with uveitis, an irritation and swelling of the uvea,
the middle layer of the eye.
Berlusconi's defence team on Monday presented three
different medical certificates as they made a petition for
"legitimate impediment" for him to skip Monday's hearing,
including one that said he risked heart complications.
The court rejected "legitimate impediment" petitions from
Berlusconi's lawyers, Niccolo Ghedini and Piero Longo.
Ghedini and Longo are lawmakers for Berlusconi's People of
Freedom (PdL) party and they said they could not take part in
Monday's hearing on the grounds that they have to attend a
meeting with party Secretary Angelino Alfano.
