Prosecutor requests seven-year term for ex-Berlusconi aide

Palermo, January 18 - Palermo's chief prosecutor on Friday requested that Marcello Dell'Utri, a former business and political ally of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, be sent to prison for seven years for allegedly helping the Mafia. Italy's supreme Court of Cassation ordered a retrial in March, saying Dell'Utri's legal rights had not been respected in the appeals trial against the original conviction. Marcello Dell'Utri was sentenced to nine years in jail in the first trial. Dell'Utri is a Senator in the ex-premier's People of Freedom party, which he is credited with helping to create in late 1993 in its original form, Forza Italia.
