TV anchorman on trial for procuring prostitutes for ex-premier

Verdict 'freaked me out' says Berlusconi friend Emilio Fede

Rome, June 24 - TV anchorman Emilio Fede, one of three defendants on trial on charges of procuring prostitutes for Silvio Berlusconi's alleged sex parties, on Monday deplored the guilty verdict against Italy's former premier. "I witnessed this moment with great sadness, because I'm sorry, because I am his friend and because I am certain he cannot have done what he was accused of. I am literally freaked out," Fede said in an interview Italian TV broadcaster La7. A Milan court on Monday found Berlusconi guilty of paying for sex with an underage prostitute and abusing his power to try to cover up the affair, handing the ex-premier a seven-year sentence. The court also banned Berlusconi for life from holding public office.
