Rome, May 28 - A member of ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party on Tuesday presented
a bill in the Senate that would punish prosecutors found guilty
of being moved by political motives, suspend the trials they are
working on and have them transferred.
The measure, presented to the Senate Justice Commission by
the committee's president, former justice minister Nitto Palma,
has been nicknamed the "Save Berlusconi" bill.
Berlusconi in on trial in Milan for allegedly paying for
sex with an underage prostitute and for allegedly abusing his
office to try to hush up the affair.
He is also appealing against a four-year conviction for
fraud at his media empire and a one-year sentence for
involvement in the publication of an illegally obtained wiretap.
He faces indictment for allegedly buying a Senator to help
topple a centre-left government too.
In the current and previous trials, Berlusconi has always
denied wrongdoing, claiming he is the victim of a minority group
of allegedly left-wing prosecutors and judges who he says are
persecuting him for political reasons.
Berlusconi recently failed in a bid to have the sex trial
and his first appeal against the fraud conviction moved from
Milan to Brescia because of alleged bias by magistrates.
The supreme Court of Cassation said it turned down the
petition because it considered the accusations of bias
"defamatory".
