Milan court convicts 3 Berlusconi ex-aides

MILAN (AP) — A Milan court has convicted three of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi’s former aides of procuring prostitutes for the media mogul’s infamous “bunga bunga” parties.

The court on Friday also gave stiff sentences to Emilio Fede, a longtime executive in the mogul’s TV networks; Dario Mora, a talent agent, and Nicole Minetti, a former regional politician who professed love for the ex-premier. Berlusconi wasn’t on trial in this case, but he was convicted separately last month of paying for sex with a minor and trying to cover it up.

In Italy, prostitution among adults is legal but exploiting prostitutes is a crime.
