Berlusconi lawyers may take tax-fraud case to Europe

(see related stories) Rome, August 1 - Silvio Berlusconi's defence lawyers said Thursday they are considering taking his four-year jail term for tax fraud to the European level after the supreme court upheld the conviction, making it definitive for Italian justice. "The sentence can only cause dismay," said the lawyers, Franco Coppi, Niccolo' Ghedini and Piero Longo. "There were very solid reasons and legal arguments for a full acquittal. "We will assess and take every initiative necessary, including in European seats, so that this unjust sentence is radically reformed".
