Italy probes mystery death of Berlusconi sex trial witness

Italy probes mystery death of Berlusconi sex trial witness

Citing Milan prosecutor Francesco Greco, Italian news agency ANSA reported that 34-year-old Imane Fadil died March 1 at a Milan hospital, where she had been treated since January 29 exhibiting "symptoms of poisoning".

Berlusconi is already being investigated or prosecuted for witness tampering in Milan, Sienna, Rome and Turin, each time for allegedly paying people to keep quiet about his bunga-bunga parties. News agency ANSA reported that a toxicology test had found that she had been killed by a "mix of radioactive substances".

Asked Saturday to comment, Berlusconi said he was always sorry when a young person dies. "I never met this person and never spoke to her".

Before her death, the model told both her brother and her lawyer that she had been poisoned and magistrates said that she possessed symptoms seen in poisoning victims.

Despite this Milan chief prosecutor Francesco Greco said there were "several anomalies" in Fadil's medical records.

Mob boss gunned down in Mafia hit outside his home
After all, it had been 34 years since a Mafia don like him had been " whacked " on the streets of NY . Suspected Gambino crime boss Frank Cali was fatally shot outside his home in NY on Wednesday.

Berlusconi was initially convicted in the case but ultimately acquitted after a judge ruled he could not have known the underage prostitute was in fact a minor.

The results came back on March 6, five days after her death, suggesting the presence of "a mixture of radioactive substances which are not normally available for purchase", the paper said, citing unnamed sources.

"The doctors have not identified with any certainty any pathology which can explain the death".

Mr Berlusconi's reputation was tarnished by allegations about the parties at his private villa.

Back in May 2010, a 17-year-old exotic nightclub dancer, Karima "Ruby" El Mahroug, left police custody in Milan after Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi called surprised officials to say that the teen should be released because she was the granddaughter of the Egyptian president.
