Italy’s Prime Minister Berlusconi accused of having sex with an underage prostitute

By: Ana Milanes

Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was accused of paying for sex with a minor. The 17-year-old Moroccan girl admitted to being paid by Berlusconi’s accountant Giuseppe Spinelli, but wouldn’t confess what for. There were also accusations of parties at his estate which included her, and other underage prostitutes. In Italy, prostitution is not illegal, only with those under 18.

The teen had a troubled past. She had a history of stealing and was arrested before for the theft of 3,000 Euros. The prime minister, 74, denied any sexual accusations and said other members of government simply wanted him out.

When Ruby was arrested, Berlusconi made a deal with a police officer to release her. When questioned about these actions, he responded that he thought the girl was a relative of the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Later, the now 18-year-old was interviewed about her relations with Italy’s prime minister and she said when they met, she lied about her age and her ethnicity. Parliament decided there was no right to search Berlusconi’s property on a 315-298 vote. Berlusconi rejected the plea for his resignation. However, there is talk of political reforms to distribute power onto more people.
