Prosecutors file charges against Berlusconi贝卢斯科尼
(Xinhua)

ROME - Italian Prosecutors on Wednesday formally requested trial for Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi on charges of abuse of power and paying for sex with a minor未成年的, charges that could lead to 15 years in jail.

Prosecutor Edmundo Bruti Liberati officially filed the application Wednesday in Milan, starting the clock [ticking滴答地响] on the five days for Judge Cristina di Censo[克里斯蒂娜·迪Censo]

to decide whether a trial has merit〔pl.〕【法律】法律意义[根据];是非曲直.

Prosecutors have requested a fast-track trial, which will limit the arguments on both sides but also make it less likely that the statute【法律】法令,法规;成文法 of limitations will expire吐气,呼气 before a decision can be made.

Di Censo will have three options: she can grant the request for the fast-track trial; she can dismiss it to call for a deeper investigation into whether any wrongdoing actually took place; or she can decide that her court does not have jurisdiction.

The third option is the tact Berlusconi's lawyers are taking, charging that the alleged crimes are alleged to have taken place in Rome and Sardinia撒[萨]丁(岛)〔意大利在地中海上的一大岛〕 and not in Milan and that, in any case, the Milan court does not have the authority to try a prime minister.

The investigation got underway in December on allegations that the 74-year-old Berlusconi paid for sex with a [Moroccan摩洛哥的]-born [cabaret餐馆里的歌舞表演] dancer named Karima el Mahrough, best known by her stage name "Ruby,"  who was 17 at the time.

Prosecutors also allege that Berlusconi tried to use his influence to have el Mahrough released from prison, where she was being held on theft charges.

Berlusconi reportedly lied撒谎(lie的过去式) to police to claim that el Mahrough was the niece侄女;甥女 of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and that they should release her in order to avoid a diplomatic crisis.

Both Berlusconi and el Mahrough deny sexual relations, though el Mahrough admits Berlusconi did give her money.

The trial is expected to get underway around mid-year, the Italian press reported.

Because of a decision from Italy's top court to [strip away剥夺] most protection保护,保卫,防御,掩护,包庇,照顾s in a controversial immunity免除 (from); 豁免 law that would have prevent阻止,阻挡;制止;妨碍ed criminal investigations into Berlusoconi and other top leaders, it is possible that Berlusconi will be required to appear in court on these latest charges.

If it does, it will be the first time a sitting Italian prime minister was required to appear before a judge to answer such accusation罪状,罪名s.
