Supreme Court upholds Berlusconi tax fraud conviction: Queen's University expert

2013-11-12

Queen’s University political studies department head Grant Amyot is available to comment on Italy’s Supreme Court upholding Silvio Berlusconi’s tax fraud conviction. The billionaire politician has faced two dozen trials since entering politics in 1994. In most cases he has been acquitted or the charges have been dropped.

The 76 year old will likely be given house arrest or ordered to perform community service.

Dr. Amyot specializes in Italian politics and is the editor and co-author of the book The End of the Berlusconi Era?.
