Berlusconi says cannot tolerate 'judicial persecution'

(see related stories) Rome, March 7 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi said Thursday that the one-year prison sentence he was given over the publication of an illegally obtained wiretap was the result of intolerable "persecution". "It's truly impossible to tolerate judicial persecution like this, which has lasted 20 years and revs up every time there are particularly complex moments in the country's political life," he said. Berlusconi's centre-right coalition came second in last month's inconclusive general election.
