(see previous) Milan, June 28 - Bankrupt ex-talent scout Lele Mora, on trial with two others for allegedly procuring prostitutes for ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, on Friday appeared to backpedal on much of what he had just told a Milan court, while speaking to journalists during a hearing break. Mora had told judges that he was a "passive accomplice," accompanying women to the alleged sex-parties at Berlusconi's Arcore residence but not manipulating or forcing their behavior. He also said that the evenings constituted "excess, abuse of power (and) degradation," and that he apologised "without if's or but's" to journalists and Communists for disputes he had kicked up in the past. But during a hearing break, he told journalists, "At Arcore, there was nothing bad. When I spoke of 'degradation' I spoke of what a newspaper had reported". Mora also told journalists, "There was never prostitution at Arcore".
