The Court of Rome removed the position of Silvio Berlusconi in the trial that sees him accused with Mariano Apicella for the alleged corruption linked to the false testimony of the Neapolitan singer referring to the parties organized in Arcore. Advancing the request, during the hearing this morning, was the defense of the former premier, the lawyer Franco Coppi, to which the prosecutor Roberto Felici did not oppose. “An application for postponement for legitimate impediment has been received in which it is said that Berlusconi’s health situation is highly compromised, with a general worsening of the picture”, said in the courtroom the president of the second criminal section of Rome, judge Anna Maria Pazienza, who after a very short council chamber decided to withdraw the position, explaining that “the accused is absolutely prevented for health reasons from appearing at trial”. The judge, explaining that “the health situation is not of immediate resolution” and that it is “necessary to proceed with the investigation” ordered the separation of Berlusconi’s position, postponing him to the hearing scheduled for November 2. According to the accusation of the Roman prosecutors, the Neapolitan singer, thanks to his false testimony regarding the parties in Arcore, would have received 157 thousand euros in exchange.
