Minetti resigns with other councillors from Lombard assembly (ANSA) - Milan, October 26 - Nicole Minetti, Silvio Berlusconi's former dental hygienist who is accused of pimping for the ex-premier, was among 74 members of the Lombardy regional council to resign on Friday.

The resignations come with the assembly set to be dissolved for early elections after a series of corruption scandals caused Governor Roberto Formigoni's administration of the region around Milan to collapse.

Minetti is among three people on trial for allegedly procuring an underage prostitute for the ex-premier's 'bunga bunga' parties.

The 27-year-old resisted pressure to step down from the assembly after the sex scandal broke.
