Berlusconi given community service for tax fraud

Published: 04.15.14, 14:49 / Israel News

MILAN - Former Premier Silvio Berlusconi must spend at least four hours a week in the service of the elderly to repay society for his tax fraud conviction, the first sentence against him ever confirmed by Italy's highest court.


The one-year assignment, announced by a Milan court on Tuesday, curtails Berlusconi's ability to participate in the upcoming European election campaign -- a point of contention among his political allies. The 77-year-old, three-time former premier cannot run due to the conviction, but remains a political force as head of Forza Italia. (AP)
