Rome, June 26 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano invited Silvio Berlusconi to a private meeting
Wednesday amid accusations from the ex-premier and his
supporters that biased judges were behind his sex conviction
this week.
According to a statement from the president's office, the
two shared a robust exchange of opinions on the political
situation at hand.
In a closely watched verdict Monday, judges in Milan
sentenced Berlusconi to seven years in prison and banned him for
life from holding public office, rulings he will appeal.
Berlusconi and his supporters have since echoed their
oft-made allegations of a leftist judiciary out to get him.
On Wednesday the Italian judiciary's self-governing body,
whose titular head is Napolitano, spoke out against such claims,
saying that the respect for the judiciary must never be
trespassed.
Many have worried that the fragile stability of the
unprecedented left-right government was at risk over the
Berlusconi's legal woes.
