Rome, April 10 - Italy's highest court on Wednesday
upheld the conviction of Fabrizio Corona, Italy's most
famous paparazzi agent, for the fraudulent bankruptcy of his
once high-flying photography agency Corona's.
The Cassation Court confirmed a three-year, 10-month
sentence handed down by a Milan appeals court in June.
Corona was sentenced in January to a separate five-year
term for blackmailing VIPs with compromising photographs.
He fled Italy for a week before tearfully turning himself in
to police in Lisbon and returning to jail in Italy.
Corona went missing hours before the Cassation Court
confirmed the ruling for blackmailing former Juventus and France
striker David Trezeguet.
The decision meant the sentence had become effective and he
had to go to prison.
"I left Italy because I was dismayed by an unjust sentence
and because I fear for my life in Italian prisons," Corona said
at the time.
The notorious personality, who has hit the headlines for
his colourful exploits and super-model girlfriends, spent over
two months in prison in 2007 in relation to a separate case that
subsequently led to a conviction for extorting money from former
Inter Milan forward Adriano.
Corona's flight from the law meant an additional two years
and 10 months time was added to his prison sentence.
His criminal record also includes convictions for
possession of fake banknotes, tax evasion and assault.
His long-term former girlfriend, model and TV star Belen
Rodriguez, left him two years ago and has just given birth to
her first child, a boy named Santiago, with Stefano De Martino,
a dancer on top TV talent show Amici.
