Not Old and Sad

Hardly has the Italian Constitutional court struck down yesterday the special pleading of the 'legitimate impediment' law (Berlusconi's government had pushed through a law that prime ministers, among others, are too busy to attend court to answer criminal charges, of which Berlusconi has a few) when the Prosecutor of Milan serves notice on Mr Berlusconi that there is trouble over this

The Prime Minister of Italy is being investigated for the crimes of extortion and the prostitution of minors  [concussione e prostituzione minorile].  His invitation to appear in Milan is furnished with detailed information on the crimes ascribed.
