Berlusconi says he is not being treated fairly
Ex-premier inaugurates new home for Forza Italia19 September, 20:06
As he opened the new offices of his revived Forza Italia political movement, Berlusconi complained that he has not been treated fairly by the legal system, or in the same way another citizen would be treated.
Last month, Berlusconi – one of Italy's richest citizens – was definitively convicted of tax fraud and faces ejection from his Senate seat.
"It's unacceptable to say that the law is same for everyone," said Berlusconi, who has complained for decades that he has been treated badly by the courts. "To say so is to hide behind hypocrisy". Earlier in the day, Premier Enrico Letta defended the justice system, saying it was fair.
