    A prostitution court case has been formally made against Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi, and he will be subject to a trial. Controversy has long surrounded Berlusconi, which has only intensified after it was alleged that he paid for the services of an underage prostitute. He is not required to appear in court for the first case, however. The first hearing is scheduled for April 6. He will need a pretty big personal unsecured loan to get out of this one. Article source - Silvio Berlusconi will go to trial for prostitution in April by MoneyBlogNewz.



    Charging the Italian Prime Minister



    The controversy of prostitute services in the past few months for Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy has been a major concern. The telegraph reports that now law enforcement officials are bringing criminal charges against him. Berlusconi is alleged to have paid for the services of a now-18-year-old who calls herself Ruby the Heartstealer. When the transaction occurred, Ruby, or Karima el-Mahroug, was only 17. The first hearing will be on April 6, as the case was set to be fast tracked by Judge Cristina Di Censo. Berlusconi will even face court case of abuse of powers as Prime Minister.



    Throng of demonstrators decries 'Rubygate'



    Several protestors, while most were women, were in a protest over the scandal, called “Rubygate” saying Berlusconi needed to be removed. He has been to trial for business violations. However, his personal conduct has never been tried before. The New York Times reports that he doesn’t have much support right now; even though Berlusconi’s party is currently a majority in parliament. The original Milan case will not require the presence of Berlusconi. Prostitution is legal in Italy, however the service provider must be at least 18.



    Berlusconi defends himself saying prostitution didn’t happen



    Past year, Berlusconi had “bunga bunga” parties. Karima el-Mahroug was 17 when attending the party. MSNBC reports the first time they met, Berlusconi gave her just a little less than $10,000 at 7,000 euros. Prosecutors will say what it was for. They say sex occurred. Both Ruby and Berlusconi say it didn’t occur. They were never even intimate. Berlusconi is also charged with abuse of powers, having personally pressured a police officer to let Ruby out of theft court case. He did not want an international incident to take place as she said she was granddaughter of Egyptian president Mubarak.
