Berlusconi to stage street demo agst magistrates

Milan, March 1 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi said Friday he would stage a street demonstration on March 23 "against magistrates" he accused of forcing Senator Sergio De Gregorio to lie about receiving 3 million euros from him to switch from centre left to centre right in 2006. Berlusconi said magistrates were trying to "eliminate" him after his second-place election run. Prosecutors said Thursday De Gregorio came forward in December and admitted to the bribe from Berlusconi to destabilize Romano Prodi's 2006-2008 government. The centre right has accused the prosecutors of "clockwork justice" in announcing the probe four days after Berlusconi came a close second to centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani in the general election.
