Milan, May 17 - Three women helped to release her
from police custody in May 2010, the former exotic dancer Ruby
testified Friday.
Karima El Mahroug, who went by the stage name Ruby, said
that when she was being held at a Milan police station on the
night of May 27, Nicole Minetti, Michelle Conceicao and Miriam
Loddo came to help.
Minetti is one of three people on trial for pimping.
Conceicao told her not to be afraid, "we will do everything
to get you back in the community," El Mahroug told the trial of
retired TV anchorman and close Berlusconi friend Emilio Fede,
bankrupt ex-talent scout Lele Mora and 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.
As well as facing a year in jail for sex with an alleged
under-aged prostitute, Berlusconi could be sentenced to a
further five years for abusing his position as premier to spring
Ruby from the Milan police station, supposedly to avoid a
diplomatic incident with Egypt.
He has stated he genuinely believed at the time that El
Mahroug was Mubarak's niece, as she had told him.
That claim was backed by parliament when it voted to put
the case to the Constitutional Court.
Prosecutors argue he was trying to hush up the affair.
