Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has been found guilty of paying for sex with an underage prostitute.
The 76-year-old was sentenced to seven years in prison and banned from holding public office by a judge in Milan.
He had denied having sex with Karima El Mahroug, also known as Ruby the Heart Stealer, after what prosecutors claimed were erotic parties at his Milan mansion in 2010.
Berlusconi was also accused of calling a police station to pressure for Miss El Mahroug’s release from custody when she was arrested for theft.
The state prosecutor asked for a six-year sentence because of the severity of corruption in Italian political life that Berlusconi represented. The judge gave him seven years!
No – that’s not John Candy’s dad
An incredulous judge asked a prostitute to justify to him how she could charge a client £20,000 a week – even though he was a company director.
Judge Stephen John berated the call-girl over her charges for the sexual services she provided to a director of children’s favourite firm Toys R Us…
“How do you justify that?”
Miss Dunbar replied: “It wasn’t me that was putting the worth on that. It was Mr Hopes paying what he thought it was worth.”
Prosecutors trying to reclaim £3.7 million 59-year-old jailed Hopes stole from his employers, argued successfully that most of the money was given to Miss Dunbar and not earned by her, and could therefore be confiscated.
The judge ruled that receivers appointed to chase the remaining cash and any assets bought with them should also reclaim a £25,000 Lexus GS300 Miss Dunbar bought for the prostitutes’ father Frank, a £30,000 Toyota Landcruiser she bought for her husband Martin Iheanacho, and her own £42,000 Lexus RS400h 4×4 car.
The enforcement team will also go after properties she bought, both in the UK and a £60,000 plot of land in her husband’s native Nigeria, and nearly £400,000 in bank accounts which were frozen by the High Court.
A £132,000 Bentley Continental which disgraced Hopes bought for her after she reportedly told him: “Every girl wants a Bentley”, has already been confiscated…
Amazingly, while supporting Miss Dunbar and four other prostitutes – processing stolen money through an account in the name of Dunbar Associates – Hopes was not spending any of the money on himself or his wife Gillian.
She has since divorced him and been awarded the family home…
Hopes…worked for Toys R Us in Maidenhead, Berkshire for 23 years…
Another enforcement hearing concerning a further £600,000 pounds given by Hopes to another prostitute, Tanya Wieck, was due to take place in the coming weeks.
Even if the sex trade was legal – as I feel it should be – Ms. Dunbar is guilty of receiving stolen goods. And that holds true in most jurisdictions in the Western world.
RTFA for the occasional chuckle. I hope dumbo had some legitimate holdings of value the courts might turn over to support his ex-wife and kids.
