Rome, June 20 - The head of the judiciary's
self-governing body on Thursday called for ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi to respect the Constitutional Court's decision to
reject his petition to strike down a tax-fraud conviction.
He should "recognize and respect the role of the judge and
the law," said Michele Vietti, the head of the Supreme Council
of Magistrates (CSM).
On Wednesday the Constitutional Court rejected the media
mogul's bid to repeal a four-year jail term and a five-year ban
from public office for tax fraud on film rights at his Mediaset
empire.
Following the ruling, the three-time premier said he was
the victim of a "20-year attempt to eliminate me from political
life".
Berlusconi is appealing to the supreme Court of Cassation.
