Le Sénat italien expulse Silvio Berlusconi

Le Cavaliere, qui n'entend pas quitter la politique pour autant, a dénoncé «un jour de deuil pour le droit et la démocratie».

Le Sénat italien a tourné mercredi soir une page d'histoire en expulsant de ses rangs Silvio Berlusconi, condamné par la justice pour fraude fiscale. Au terme d'un débat orageux - neuf ordres du jour présentés par Forza Italia, le parti du Cavaliere, ayant été repoussés à main levée -, le président de la Chambre haute, Pietro Grasso, a proclamé à 17 h 42 la déchéance immédiate de l'ancien président du Conseil. Le vote - dont l'issue était connue, la gauche et le Mouvement 5 étoiles de Beppe Grillo ayant uni leurs voix - est le résultat d'une loi de 2012 prévoyant l'inéligibilité pendant six ans de tout élu condamné à plus de deux ans de prison.

Israel has agreed to a long-standing Palestinian demand to release Palestinian prisoners in order to resume peace talks, but will not yield on other central issues, International Relations Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Saturday.
US Secretary of State John Kerry announced Friday that Israel and the Palestinians have laid the groundwork for renewed direct peace talks, some three years after the previous attempt at negotiations fell apart.

Silvio Berlusconi sentenced to four years for tax fraud

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been sentenced to four years in prison for tax fraud.
Mr Berlusconi and others were accused of buying US film rights at inflated prices via two offshore companies under his control.
The former prime minister is expected to appeal against the verdict.
He has faced a number of trials connected to his business affairs, but has either been cleared or cases have run beyond the judicial time limit.
In the case for which he was sentenced on Friday, prosecutors alleged that part of the money declared for the purchase of film rights was skimmed off to create illegal slush funds, reducing tax liabilities for Mediaset, one of Mr Berlusconi's companies.
