Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi appears in court in Milan to address charges he paid for underage sex and abused his position of power.

 MILANITALY (OCTOBER 19, 2012) (RAI POOL) -  Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi told an Italian court on Friday (October 19) that the regular dinner parties held at his luxury villa outside Milan did not involve any erotic scenes.

Berlusconi, a centre-right political leader and media magnate, is on trial in Milan for allegedly paying for sex with teenaged nightclub dancer Karima El Mahroug, better known under her stage name of "Ruby".

Berlusconi, whose "bunga bunga" parties won worldwide notoriety, has repeatedly denied ever paying for sex and has also denied ever having had sex with Ruby.
