Anchor indicted in 'Ruby' trial says he can't afford more

Milan, October 30 - The former TV news anchor from Silvio Berlusconi's Mediaset media empire, Emilio Fede, indicted by a Milan court in the high-profile 'Ruby' case, said on Tuesday that he could no longer pay his legal fees. "I am at the mercy of the court. I can no longer afford the expense," the close personal friend of the ex-premier said. The retired newsman said that so far he has spent approximately "a million euros" to defend himself against charges of procuring prostitutes, including an underage prostitute, for the premier's alleged sex parties involving Karima 'Ruby' El Mahroug, the young Moroccan belly dancer at the centre of the scandal. "I did a calculation. I'm 80 so I'm not going to jail. If I am sentenced to house arrest, I have a house that overlooks a garden, I'll buy a chihuahua and exercise," Fede said.
