Rome, August 28 - Lawyers for ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi presented legal opinions Wednesday supporting their
argument that he should be allowed to keep his Senate seat
despite his conviction earlier this month for tax fraud.
The opinions, including some constitutional arguments, were
presented to a committee involved in the Senate's vote on the
question of whether to strip Berlusconi of his seat following a
high-court ruling that upheld his first-ever binding conviction
in a criminal court.
The Senate, where the centre-left Democratic Party (PD)
holds a narrow majority, will decide next month whether to
ratify stripping Berlusconi of his Senate seat.
Berlusconi argues that stripping him of his seat is
unconstitutional since its basis is a new anti-corruption law
that kicked in only after his August 1 conviction.
