The 74-year-old Italian Prime minister has built a fortune estimated at $9bn by US business magazine Forbes,  owning assets in the fields of  media, advertising,newspapers, publishing, cinema, finance, banking,  insurance, food and construction. It has been sufficient evidence for many Italians of his ability to run their country since 1994. He owns Italy’s most successful football club, AC Milan, and his investment company controls Italy’s three biggest private television stations, which together cover approximately a half of the national television sector; and Publitalia, the leading Italian advertising and publicity agency.   Silvio Berlusconi has an extensive record of criminal allegations, including mafia collusion, false accounting, tax fraud, corruption and bribery of police officers and judges. Berlusconi has been tried in Italian courts in several cases. In three of these cases accusations were dropped by the judiciary because of laws passed by Berlusconi’s parliamentary majority shortening the time limit for prosecution of various offences.
Mr Berlusconi has dodged a series of political, sex and corruption scandals but the constant drip of accusations against him has seen many of his friends and allies drift away.Mr Berlusconi has always maintained he is “no saint”. Faced with potentially the most damaging allegations so far, he has now firmly denied ever paying for sex with a woman.
