Berlusconi phoned bunga bunga witnesses after testimony

(ANSA) – ROME, OCT 20 – Ex-premier and media mogul Silvio Berlusconi phoned two witnesses after they told a court that his bunga bunga parties were not the “elegant dinners” he has said they were, the women said Wednesday.
    Barbara Guerra, one of the witnesses in the ‘Ruby Ter’ witness suborning trial, said “the tones (of the phone call) were not very friendly”.
    Alessandra Sorcinelli also said she had got a call from the three-time former premier 24 hours after she testified along the lines of Guerra, but said she did not answer the call.
    Showgirl Guerra is alleged to have attended the parties at the centre-right leader’s residence outside Milan 47 times between March 2012 and February 2014.
    Alessandra Sorcinelli is another of the young women Berlusconi allegedly bought apartments for in the upscale Milanese Olgiata district and allegedly bribed not to the t ell the truth about the parties, before some of them changed their minds.
    Berlusconi, 85, has denied paying the so-called ‘olgettine’ to lie for him under oath. (ANSA).
