Rome, July 10 - Lower House Whip for Silvio
Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party, Renato Brunetta,
said that party members would not attend Italian government
coalition meetings planned for Wednesday.
The day after Italy's supreme Cassation Court's speedy
scheduling of a final appeals trial of Berlusconi's conviction
for fraud, Senators and politicians from the PdL asked for all
parliamentary activity to be suspended while the group's members
discuss their next moves.
Brunetta said that a PdL assembly will be held because
"long and detailed discussions" are needed.
The supreme court on Tuesday shocked the ex-premier's
defense lawyer and sparked outrage among the centre-right
leader's followers by scheduling the trial date on the same day
the appeal was filed - to begin in three weeks' time on July 30.
PdL Senate Whip Renato Schifani has also asked for
government meetings to be paused for the assembly.
The appeal trial regards the media mogul's conviction on
tax-dodging through the manipulation of film rights for
Mediaset, a broadcasting company that is part of his family's
media empire.
