Hearings continue into charges against ex-premier Berlusconi


Milan, May 13 - Nicole Minetti performed two
different jobs: one managing prostitutes and the other serving
on a regional council, Milan prosecutor Ilda Boccassini said
Monday during the trial of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi.
Minetti, who was Berlusconi's former dental hygienist had
"this double work", and distributed her time evenly between the
tasks given by her mentor, said the prosecutor.
And Minetti was also aware - like other Berlusconi friends
including Emilio Fede and Lele Mora - that Karima El Mahroug, a
young Moroccan former nightclub dancer who went by the stage
name 'Ruby Heartstealer', was underage.
Berlusconi is accused of paying for sex with Ruby before
she was 18, the legal age of prostitution in Italy, and of
allegedly abusing his power in a bid to cover up the affair.
El Mahroug and Berlusconi have both said they never had sex
during several of the ex-premier's so-called Bunga Bunga parties
while she was underage.
Boccassini said that Ruby quickly became a favourite of
Prosecutors have produced phone records allegedly proving
El Mahroug stayed at Berlusconi's villa several times in
April-May 2010, when she was 17.
As well as facing three years in jail for sex with an
alleged underaged prostitute, Berlusconi could be sentenced to a
further 12 years for abusing his position as premier to spring
Ruby from a Milan police station, supposedly to avoid a
diplomatic incident with Egypt.
