Berlusconi jail term to be suspended

Only one year of four-year sentence effective due to amnesty

Berlusconi jail term to be suspended

Milan, August 2 - Milan prosecutors on Friday will issue an order to make effective Silvio Berlusconi's tax-fraud prison conviction and suspend the sentence, ANSA sources said. The suspension regards only one year of the four-year term as three years are not effective anyway because of a 2006 amnesty. As Berlusconi is over 70, he was not at risk of actually going to prison, although his punishment could have been transformed into social work or house arrest, if the sentence had not been suspended.
