Opposition takes on scandal-plagued Berlusconi

Rome: Italy`s opposition charged on Tuesday that Premier Silvio Berlusconi`s sex scandal has damaged the image of the Italian government, as a news weekly released more recordings of what appear to be conversations he had with a prostitute.
In a motion before the Senate, the opposition called on
politicians to show "decorum" in their private lives and be
cautious in their acquaintances, the latest fallout from the
scandal surrounding Berlusconi`s alleged encounters with young
women.

Yesterday, the Italian news weekly L`Espresso released
tape recordings of what it said was the night Berlusconi spent
with the escort. It released further recordings today,
including what appears to be an explicit conversation between
the two.

The premier`s lawyer has disputed the veracity of the
tapes, saying they were "the fruit of invention."

The motion presented today by the center-left Democratic
Party says the scandal "has objectively weakened the image and
authority of the Italian government."
