Gazzada (Varese), September 3 - Convicted
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi is being treated like late
Socialist leader Bettino Craxi, the most prominent victim of the
early 1990s Bribesville scandals, Northern League boss Roberto
Maroni said Tuesday, urging him to pull the plug on Italy's
left-right government.
"I have heard from Berlusconi and I feel very worried,"
Maroni said outside a conference.
"I hope that he removes support for the government," led by
Premier Enrico Letta and his centre-left Democratic Party.
"Though a decision is up to him, of course," he added.
Maroni, secretary of the anti-immigration League which was
long the key government partner of Berlusconi's centre-right
People of Freedom (PdL), accused the PD of treating Berlusconi
like his old friend Craxi by vowing to vote to strip him of his
Senate seat.
The Senate is expected to vote in late October or early
November on whether to eject Berlusconi from his seat because of
the three-time premier's August 1 four-year tax-fraud
conviction.
Craxi, who protected Berlusconi's media empire from
anti-trust rules and was a godfather to one of the mogul's
children, long claimed he was hounded by the judiciary, just as
Berlusconi has.
Craxi, Italy's first Socialist premier for four years in
the mid-1980s, died in self-imposed exile at his Tunisian villa
in 2000, having fled an arrest warrant.
