'Anti-Berlusconi bias' no factor in Senate suit (see related) (ANSA) - Rome, February 6 - Senate Speaker Pietro Grasso on Thursday said "anti-Berlusconi bias" had nothing to do with his decision to make the Upper House a plaintiff in a trial against ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi for allegedly bribing lawmakers to change political sides. "The choice was in order to give the Senate a voice in an affair we hope is untrue," he said.
