Genoa, April 3 - The young Moroccan woman known as
'Ruby' at the centre of a sex scandal that has put Italian
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi on trial said on Wednesday that she
will stage a protest in front of the Milan court where hearings
have been taking place to make her voice heard.
Karima El Mahroug, who will arrive in front of the
courthouse Thursday at 10:30 am, told ANSA that she wants "to
protest not being heard during hearings" that carry her name.
"I don't understand the reason and I intend to say so
publicly," El Mahroug said.
The former nightclub dancer and alleged prostitute accused
of having sex with Berlusconi failed to show up to testify when
called in December.
Her lawyer told presiding judges that her client was
vacationing abroad with her partner and child and would be
available to testify in January.
In January, El Mahroug appeared in the Milan court, but in
a surprise move judges upheld a request by the defence to not
demand her testimony.
Instead the judges agreed to rely on statements El Mahroug
made to investigators in the case.
In March, judges in Milan suspended Berlusconi's trial
until April 22 while the supreme Cassation Court considers a
ruling on a motion to move the case to a court in Brescia on
alleged grounds of biased judges.
Both Berlusconi and El Mahroug have denied having sex
during one of the ex-premier's so-called Bunga Bunga parties
while she was underage.
