Berlusconi investigated in new corruption case

Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, challenging for a share of power after this week's election, has been placed under investigation on suspicion of bribing a senator to change sides in parliament in 2006, sources in the investigation said on Thursday.

 

Two of Berlusconi's lawyers, Niccolo Ghedini and Piero Longo, said they had not yet received any official notification of the investigation from Naples magistrates and would not comment until they had. (Reuters)
