Berlusconi indicted in escorts case

Ex-premier allegedly bridged witness to give false testimony

(ANSA) - Bari, November 16 - A judge in the southern city of Bari on Friday sent ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi to trial for allegedly bribing a witness to give false evidence about alleged sex parties. The case regards the alleged prostitution of escorts that Italian entrepreneur Gianpaolo Tarantini brought to Silvio Berlusconi's homes between 2008 and 2009. Prosecutors say Berlusconi gave Tarantini work and money so that he would lie to investigators probing the escorts case.
    Berlusconi's defence team said it was confident of a swift acquittal.
