Scilipoti, Razzi 'not probed' for corruption
But accounts of Senators who saved Berlusconi checked06 March, 13:01
But the prosecutors said they were looking into the pair's accounts.
Domenico Scilipoti and Antonio Razzi, former members of the Italy of Values (IdV) party, were widely accused of selling out when they became part of a group of self-proclaimed "patriotic" parliamentarians who saved Berlusconi's majority after the defection of heir-turned-foe Gianfranco Fini.
Scilipoto and Razzi have denied taking money in return for switching sides.
IdV leader Antonio Di Pietro, a former Clean Hands graftbuster, filed various legal complaints about the two turncoats at the time.
Another former member of the IdV, Sergio De Gregorio, is under investigation in a separate case in which he came forward in December and claimed he accepted three million euros from Berlusconi in 2006 to "sabotage" the centre-left government of Romano Prodi, which fell in 2008.
Berlusconi claims De Gregorio made up the accusations.
