ROME - Judges in the Italian city of Milan said on Monday they would delay Silvio Berlusconi's trial on charges of paying for sex with a minor until April 22, pending a decision on whether to transfer the case to the city of Brescia.

A separate appeal against a conviction for tax fraud has already been delayed until April 20 after the former prime minister's lawyers appealed to have the cases transferred to Brescia from Milan where they say he cannot get a fair hearing.

Italy's highest court, the Corte di Cassazione, is due to rule on the request but no date has yet been set for a decision.
