Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is seeking to postpone the resumption of his fraud trial in Milan, news sources in Rome reported on Tuesday. Berlusconi was accused of tax fraud in a trial over his broadcaster Mediaset's purchase of TV rights. He has denied all allegations against him. A law granting immunity to Berlusconi while in office prevented legal action against him. But the unconstitutional legislation was overturned last month, paving the way for proceedings to resume. A hearing was scheduled for Nov. 16. However, Berlusconi's lawyers said the premier would be unable to attend the hearing at that time, according to the Apcom news agency.
