MILAN — Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi has called the sex probe targeting him "disgusting," saying it was aimed at damaging his government.

The premier spoke to reporters in Rome on Wednesday shortly after prosecutors in Milan filed a request for his indictment on charges he paid for sex with a 17-year-old girl and then used his influence to try to cover it up.

Berlusconi said Wednesday the accusations against him are groundless and insisted the Milan prosecutors were violating the law by overstepping their jurisdiction.

His defense has insisted the case should be handled by a special tribunal set up to deal with alleged offenses committed by public officials.
