Messina, June 24 - The father of the former exotic dancer at the center of an alleged sex-scandal involving ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi said he was going into the hospital and asked to be "left in peace" on Monday, the day the verdict was expected from a Milan court. Mohamed El Mahroug, father of Karima also known as 'Ruby Heart-stealer', told reporters that he "knew nothing and was not guilty of anything". "I'm not well and I am going to the hospital," he told ANSA reporters. In verdict in the trial against Berlusconi for allegedly paying for sex with Ruby, who was underage at the time, is expected Monday. Prosecutors have requested the media magnate be handed a six-year prison term. Berlusconi and Ruby have both denied ever having sex.
