Berlusconi`s `sex-for-hire` trial postponed

Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has won a delay in his sex-for-hire trial after pleading he was too ill to attend the hearing.



London: Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has won a delay in his sex-for-hire trial after pleading he was too ill to attend the hearing.

He had been seeking to have two Milan trials postponed due to an eye condition for which he has been hospitalised since Friday.

Judges in Berlusconi`s tax fraud appeal continued with Saturday`s hearing after court-appointed doctors said his ailments were not severe enough to keep him from court.

But another court has now granted the motion to delay the sex-for-hire trial after ordering a new medical visit to verify the severity of his ailments, the Daily Star reports.

According to the report, Berlusconi`s lawyers submitted three medical certificates, citing the eye inflammation and a heart problem, to support the new delay.

Berlusconi, 76, is charged with having paid for sex with an underage Moroccan girl and using his influence to cover it up.
