Rome, May 9 - Comedian Beppe Grillo, leader of the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, said on Thursday that Silvio
Berlusconi should go to jail.
Speaking a day after a Milan court upheld a four-year
conviction against Berlusconi for tax fraud, Grillo also said
his movement would vote in parliament for Berlusconi's
ineligibility.
"In any democratic country, Berlusconi would be in prison
or would have been removed from any public role while here he
tips the scale" of the left-right government, said Grillo, whose
party won a surprising number of votes in a near three-way tie
in February's elections.
On Wednesday, a Milan court upheld a four-year conviction
against Berlusconi on tax fraud charges on TV rights bought by
his Mediaset TV empire, which the media magnate will appeal to
the Court of Cassation, Italy's highest appeals court.
He is also on trial in Milan over accusations he paid for
sex with an underage Moroccan dancer, and is accused of abuse of
office in the same case.
The conviction upheld on Wednesday, which also bars
Berlusconi from holding public office for five years and
directive offices for three, "would have burnt out any British,
German or American politician," said Grillo.
"While here this guy passes himself off as a statesman. He
makes statements and presents himself as a founding father of
the country".
