Milan, May 13 - Opening a beauty salon was a
"dream" that ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi helped her to achieve
with a multi-million euro cash gift, the former exotic dancer
Ruby testified Friday.
Karima El Mahroug, who went by the stage name Ruby, said
that although things did not go well when she tried working in a
salon in the city of Messina, she still craved economic
independence and her own shop.
"That's always been my dream," she testified at the trial
of three people accused of pimping on behalf of Berlusconi.
The accused are retired TV anchorman and close Berlusconi
friend Emilio Fede, bankrupt ex-talent scout Lele Mora and
Nicole Minetti, an ex-Lombardy regional councillor and the
ex-premier's former dental hygienist.
The trio are charged with the alleged procurement of
prostitutes, including Ruby, who was one year below the legal
age for prostitution at the time of the alleged sex parties
hosted by Berlusconi in 2010.
At previous trials, it was disclosed that Berlusconi gave
El Mahroug as much as 4.5 million euros, which he said was to
help her start a business.
At a separate trial, prosecutors say the woman was a
prostitute and the money was in payment from Berlusconi.
