PD member compares Berlusconi to stalker
Senator complains of pressure from ex-premier's supporters27 September, 13:40
PD Senator Stefania Pezzopane said the Senate will decide next week whether to eject Berlusconi following his conviction for tax fraud, regardless of the rising level of threats coming from Berlusconi's supporters in his Forza Italia (FI) political party.
"Berlusconi is a stalker," of the current government, she said.
FI parliamentarians have threatened to resign and bring down the fragile coalition government if the Senate moves to eject Berlusconi. "With other members of the (committee) the Senate must decide the (fate) of Berlusconi," Pezzopane told a radio program.
But in the meantime, senators are evaluating the law, including rules regarding threats against the government and its members, she said.
