Sunday, 12 May, 2013. Silvio Berlusconi's Mediaset broadcaster Canale 5 airs a two-hour documentary to demonstrate prosecutors sex-related charges against the former prime minister are groundless (at least to the public opinion), as a last act of a counteroffensive against the Italian judiciary.

Silvio Berlusconi's stand is that the dinners where young girls and women were invited (some of them were just kept at hand in the bunga-bunga army) were pretty “normal soirées” and that his guests “kept their cloths on”. Prosecution thinks he has been running aprostitution ring. They find it difficult to reconcile the two different positions.
The broadcast was following a protest against Italian judiciary, a demonstration that took place in Brescia the day before. Among the others, also Angelino Alfano – Italian Minister of the Interior as well as vice prime minister – decided to take part in the demonstration, which may sound odd to foreign observers.
Apart from this, Karima El-Mahroug keeps saying she is not (and she wasn't) a prostitute. And in the beginning of April she staged asmall-scale-protest to state her case.
