Berlusconi and Ruby the Heartstealer 2.0

Fri, 28 June 2013. A minor branch of the sex scandal trial gravitating to stripper Karima El Mahroug approaches its end and new leaks about Mr Berlusconi's bunga-bunga nights might come to light, as well as other details about women, girls and others.

The main branch of the trail that followed the rubygate inquiry ended a few days ago when the former prime minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi was sentenced to 7 years in prison (pending appeal, of course) for child prostitution and abuse of power, but there is a secondary branch of the proceeding – dubbed Ruby 2 or Ruby bis - where three persons are accused of pimping on behalf of Mr Berlusconi,

The three characters – for whom Prosecution demand a 7-year sentence to each and everyone - are a model-politician, Nicole Minetti, a journalist-politician, Emilio Fede, and a showbiz agent-bankrupt manager-bisexual dope pusher, Lele Mora. They are accused of recruiting, testing and keep the females needed for the bunga-bunga parties.
Apart from that, plaintiff Moroccan model Imane Fadil has asked for a compensation of 2m euros (which is about 2.6m USA dollars or 1.7m British pounds) for the “serious dishonour” and “ mental and physical damage” suffered by the young woman for. She is one of the girls who participated to the parties in Berlusconi's villa.

In particular Gabriele “Lele” Mora seems to be in the eye of the storm, and he has released to journalists an apparently conflicting statement compared to what he was going to say a couple of days later to prosecutors, when he released “spontaneous statements”.

First – according to right-wing newspaper Libero on an article published on 26 June – Lele Mora said that “the president [Berlusconi] really did not deserve so severe a sentence” and “I attended Pope Wojtyła [John Paul II], Mother Teresa and Princess Diana, and Berlusconi remains the most gentle and humane of all”. Apart from that, Lele Mora declared that Silvio Berlusconi – according to Libero's narrative - “could not suffer her [Karima El Mahroug]: she reeked of sweat, was battered. It's absurd to think she might be a slut!”.

Two days later the leading wire service in Italy – agency ANSA - cited the same Lele Mora admitting to prosecutors that what happened in Arcore during the evening organised by Silvio Berlusconi was a case of “ excess, abuse of power, degradation, three words that I read in the newspapers and I share”. I have been a “passive party to all this”, he added.

Now, what about a combination of the two: a saint – or at least a blessed – who is also a billionaire, prone to abusing of his power, organising “decent” evenings where nothing improper ever happened, inviting drug-traffickers under-age sweaty and battered girls in need? Does it work at all?
