Berlusconi trials 'respected the rules' says prosecutor


(see related stories)
Rome, July 30 - A State prosecutor told Italy's
supreme court on Tuesday that proper judicial procedure was
fully respected in two trials in which ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi was sentenced to four years in jail for tax fraud at
his media empire.
Five judges at the supreme Court of Cassation are
considering whether to uphold the prison sentence and a
five-year ban on Berlusconi holding public office.
If they do, the conviction will become definitive.
Berlusconi's defence team has presented 50 objections to
the conviction to the Cassation, which will rule on legal
procedure and whether the lower appeals court properly justified
its sentence.
"I can certainly say that from observation of the ways in
which the process was conducted, the rules have been respected
and there is no contrast with the principles of just process,"
said prosecutor Antonello Mura.
