Showgirl mimicked prosecutor at Berlusconi parties - Ruby

Ex-dancer testifies at trial of alleged pimps of former premier

Showgirl mimicked prosecutor at Berlusconi parties - Ruby

(see related story) Milan, May 17 - Karima El Mahrough, the former nightclub dancer known as 'Ruby Heartstealer' at the center of a sex scandal involving Silvio Berlusconi, told a Milan court on Friday that during after-dinner parties at ex-premier's Arcore villa she saw showgirl Marystelle Polanco dressed as "Obama and as Ilda Boccassini, with a toga (magistrates robe) and red wig". El Mahrough was testifying at the trial of three people accused of supplying the ex-premier and media magnate with prostitutes. Milan prosecutor Boccassini - who worked closely with murdered anti-Mafia magistrate Giovanni Falcone in the 1990s and also lead a 2002 trial in which Berlusconi was accused of bribing judges in the 1980s in order to win control of the state-owned SME food conglomerate - requested Monday the former premier be sentenced to a combined six-year jail term for abuse of power and for having sex with Ruby when she was underaged. Retired TV anchorman and close Berlusconi friend Emilio Fede, bankrupt ex-talent scout Lele Mora and ex-Lombardy regional councillor and the ex-premier's former dental hygienist Nicole Minetti are on trial for the alleged procurement of prostitutes, including Ruby, for alleged sex parties reportedly hosted by Berlusconi in 2010. According to El Mahrough, Minetti would dress as "a sexy nurse, doctor or nun". "I saw Minetti, at a certain point while she was dancing, strip down to her underwear," El Mahrough said. "In the ex-premier's Bunga Bunga room, there was a pole for dancing," she testified, saying that the other girls explained the origin of Bunga Bunga came from a joke that Berlusconi liked to tell.
