Berlusconi to appear in court for Italy fraud trial

MILAN - Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is expected to appear in court for the first time in almost eight years on Monday, in a trial over alleged fraud over the acquisition of television broadcasting rights.
The constitutional court lifted Berlusconi's immunity from trial earlier this year, exposing him to three corruption and fraud cases linked to his Mediaset broadcasting empire and a separate trial in which he is accused of having sex with an underage prostitute.
The last time the 74-year old prime minister appeared himself in court was in June 2003.
