Berlusconi senator admits to taking 2-mln-euro bribe

Rome, March 11 - Senator Sergio De Gregorio publicly confessed to accepting two million euros in bribe money from former premier Silvio Berlusconi to switch sides from the centre left to the centre right. "Because they gave me two million euros under the table. I confessed. I committed a crime," he said after a hearing with prosecutors in Rome. De Gregorio, who prosecutors said had already admitted to receiving bribes, defected from the centre left during Romano Prodi's 2006-2008 government and eventually joined Berlusconi's party. De Gregorio, who police say came forward in December, was suspected of accepting up to three million euros.
