Former Italian PM acquitted in high-profile prostitution case
Italy's Supreme Court of Cassation upheld the July 2014 acquittal of former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi in a high-profile prostitution case involving a minor.
Berlusconi was initially convicted by the Court of First Instance in June 2013 for paying for sexual services from an underage Moroccan named Karima Mahroug, known as Ruby Rubacuori. The appeals court, however, overturned the former prime minister's conviction the following July, Sky TG24 reported Wednesday.
The court's decision is final and not subject to appeal, thus putting an end to the high-profile trial.
