(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 18 – Silvio Berlusconi, three-time prime minister and media mogul, had sex slaves during orgies at his villa outside Milan where he had sex with a Moroccan teenager runaway and exotic dancer named Ruby the Heartstealer, one of several lawsuits stemming from the Ruby case heard on Wednesday.
A number of young women who attended the parties. which Berlusconi called elegant and innocent affairs – are on trial in the Ruby #3 case with the former prime minister for alleged bribes to force them to keep quiet about the true nature of the parties.
Berlusconi was acquitted in the first trial because judges ruled he could not have known Ruby was only 17 when he paid to have sex with her.
“The facts have now passed into history: the incumbent prime minister used to systematically spice up his evenings by welcoming groups of odalisques, paid sex slaves, to his home,” summarized prosecutor Tiziana Siciliano, arguing that the so-called “Olgetta Girls” (from their Berlusconi-funded Milan building) were paid off by center-right leader Forza Italia.
Siciliano also said that a witness who died of a rare disease in 2019, Moroccan-Italian model Imane Fadil, “was afraid, a fear that accompanied her until her death, a fear that the environment that accompanied until his death is truly dangerous and powerful”.
The prosecutor also told the court that the long length of the trial, eight years, “means that the (justice) system has failed.”
