Berlusconi judge may face new disciplinary measures


Rome, November 22 - An Italian supreme court judge
faces possible new disciplinary measures for a controversial
interview he gave after leading the panel that upheld a
tax-fraud conviction against ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi in
August, Italian media reported Friday.
According to the daily Il Messagero, a Cassation Court
prosecutor has launched a probe into Antonio Esposito, whose
interview with Naples-based daily Il Mattino caused a massive
furore, coming so soon after Berlusconi received his first-ever
binding conviction following two decades of legal battles.
It was a highly unusual move as a court usually only
comments on its sentences in a written explanation generally
published over a month after the verdict is announced.
Esposito said that during the interview, he was talking
only in general terms and the newspaper had misconstrued his
comments to make it seem as if he had been referring
specifically to Berlusconi's case.
Last week the Italian judiciary's self-governing body (CSM)
announced a large majority of senior committee members had voted
to drop its own case against him.
But the case lodged against Esposito at the Cassation court
may lead to bringing the judge back before the CSM's
disciplinary panel.
