Salacious details of Berlusconi allegedly having dancers dressed in nun costumes strip for him at a “bunga bunga” party at his Villa in Arcore, joined a growing list of accusations
against the former prime minister.
Berlusconi is on trial for having sex with an underage prostitute and steamy testimony continues to bubble to the surface. One witness, Imane Fadil, a “model,” said she was given 2,000 euros in cash by Berlusconi at the first party she attended. The young woman testified that Berlusconi said, “Don’t be offended.”
Fadil claims she saw two young women in nun costumes with “black tunics, white veils and crosses” stripping in front of Italy’s then prime minister that evening.
One of the two strippers was reportedly Nicole Minetti, now a regional councilor for Berlusconi’s People of Freedom party in Milan, Moroccan-born Fadil said.
Monday, Valter Lavitola
was arrested a short while after arriving at Leonardo Da Vinci airport on a flight from Buenos Aires, Argentina where he had fled after being implicated in the scandal.
Earlier, Lavitola had said he had “had enough” and would return to Rome and face charges filed against him.
Last September Italian prosecutors issued an arrest warrant for Lavitola, saying he was the middle man for payments between Berlusconi and Bari businessman Gianpaolo Tarantini and Angela Devenuto.
The Tarantinis’ were accused of blackmailing Berlusconi for a half million euros (680 000 dollars) using information they had about reported sexual trists that Tarantini allegedly set up for the premier.
After news of Berlusconi's parties surfaced, Fadil said
she was repeatedly contacted by a "mysterious" blond, blue-eyed man who asked her to come to Berlusconi's mansion for a meeting and gave her an untraceable mobile phone to stay in touch.
