Fede to serve Ruby term under house arre

Sentenced to 4 yrs 7 mts for pimping for Berlusconi with Minetti

(ANSA) - Milan, October 11 - Former Berlusconi TV journalist Emilio Fede is ailing and at 88 imprisonment would "go against the sense of humanity" so he should serve his four year, seven month term for pimping in the so-called 'Ruby bis' case under house arrest, a judge ruled Friday.
    In April April 11 the supreme Court of Cassation upheld two sentences handed down for involvement in bringing prostitutes to parties at the Arcore home near Milan of ex-premier and Forza Italia leader Silvio Berlusconi.
    The court confirmed the jail term of four years, seven months for former Berlusconi TV channel news anchor Fede and of two years, 10 months for the ex-premier's former dental hygienist and ex Lombardy regional councillor Nicole Minetti.
