Italian Senate panel recommends Berlusconi expulsion

Looks like there’s a chance Berlusconi is finally going to get (some of) what’s coming to him.

A cross-party panel of the Italian Senate has recommended the expulsion from the chamber of Silvio Berlusconi over his conviction for tax fraud.

The call to expel the ex-premier who dominated politics for nearly two decades in Italy is expected to go before the Senate within three weeks.

He will have to serve a one-year sentence for his tax conviction, probably under house arrest or via community service because of his age.

In addition, he has been convicted of paying for sex with an underage prostitute and of a breach of confidentiality over a police wiretap. He is appealing against both convictions.

A shame he’ll never see the inside of a jail. It’s what he deserves.
