Scumbag fraudster Berlusconi, who should be incarcerated indefinitely for his role in Italy's demise, has had his original 4 year sentence reduced to
1 year - get this, wait for it - because of a law passed in 2006 to prevent overcrowding of Italian prisons!
What a load of BS!!!! These NWO cronies are all scratching each other's backs. You just watch - give it five years, or probably less, and good old
Berlusconi will be finance minister. YOU COULDN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!! :-D
Italy's media tycoon and former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi was briefly sentenced to four years in prison for tax fraud connected to his Mediaset
empire and banned from holding public office for five years by a Milan court.
But the court immediately cut the sentence to one year under an amnesty law approved by the then centre-left government in 2006 to reduce the
overcrowding of Italian prisons.
Berlusconi, 76, is considered certain to stave off any imprisonment by appealing through higher courts. Friday's verdict came two days after he
announced his retirement from politics.
He condemned the sentence as 'intolerable judicial harassment' and his lawyer branded the verdict as 'absolutely unbelievable'.
