Fininvest chief Marina Berlusconi demands 'respect'

Berlusconi firm to sue Ingroia for 'Mafia laundering' slur

Milan, May 15 - Silvio Berlusconi's holding company Fininvest is set to sue former anti-Mafia prosecutor Antonio Ingroia for suggesting it had laundered money from the Mob. "This gentleman dares to describe Fininvest as a company that has recycled Mafia capital," the ex-premier and media magnate's daughter and company chief Marina Berlusconi told one of the group's media assets, newsweekly Panorama. Ingroia, who has unsuccessfully tried to prosecute ex-premier Berlusconi for Mafia links, recently rejoined the judiciary after creating a leftist party that flopped in February's general election. Marina Berlusconi accused Ingroia of "manipulating" evidence from trials that failed to convict her father and added: "We (Fininvest) have paid more than nine billion euros in taxes in the last 20 years, we have invested 27, we employ almost 20,000 people. Is it too much to expect a bit of respect?. "We have always played by the rules".
