Rome, June 5 - Despite his many legal distractions
created by allegedly malicious judges, ex-premier Silvo
Berlusconi said Wednesday that he has still been able to
maintain focus on his political duties.
And he has "much hope" in the future of the coalition
government pulled together by Premier Enrico Letta of the
centre-left Democratic Party, he added.
"Despite everything that was thrown on me in the legal
field, we have kept the rudder straight supporting this
government," Berlusconi told T9, a Rome-based local TV channel.
Letta's government, which is backed by a seemingly
unnatural alliance of Berlusconi's centre-right PdL and the PD,
was formed in April to end two months of deadlock after
February's vote produced no clear winner.
Berlusconi said Letta's administration was "strong" as the
PD-PdL agreement sealed the end of two decades of a "long cold
war, a civil war".
Berlusconi, who is embroiled in a number of legal cases,
has long argued that he is the victim of allegedly left-wing
prosecutors and judges who he says are persecuting him for
political reasons.
He is currently on trial on charges that he paid for sex
with an underage prostitute and abused his office to try to
cover up the affair.
He is also appealing a four-year conviction for fraud at
his media empire and a one-year sentence for publishing an
illegally obtained wiretap.
The three-time premier also faces indictment for allegedly
buying a Senator to help topple a previous centre-left
government.
