Emilio Fede reportedly in fake porn photo probe

Allegedly doctored photos to damage Mediaset execs

(ANSA) - Milan, October 23 - Milan prosecutors are investigating former TV news anchor Emilio Fede on suspicion of criminal association and slander, La Stampa newspaper reported Thursday.
    The probe reportedly kicked off three months ago and involves the alleged use of doctored pornographic photos to spark "a red-light scandal" to the detriment of several executives at Silvio Berlusconi's Mediaset commercial broadcaster, where Fede used to work.
    Investigators are reportedly also probing Fede's personal trainer, former boxer Gaetano Ferri, on suspicion of attempting to extort the ex anchorman.
    Fede was convicted last year along with Nicole Minetti, Berlusconi's former dental hygienist and an ex-Lombardy councilor, and former talent scout Lele Mora, of procuring girls and organizing "bunga bunga" sex parties at the ex-premier's Arcore residence.
    Fede and Mora were both given seven-year prison sentences and banned for life from public office while Minetti was sentenced to five years in prison and banned from office for as many years.
    They are out of jail pending appeals.
