Top Italy Court Rejects Berlusconi Immunity Law

Top Italy Court Rejects Berlusconi Immunity Law

ROME (Reuters) - Italy's Constitutional Court ruled Tuesday that a recent law which gave Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi immunity from prosecution was illegitimate and had to be revoked, a court statement said.

The decision represented a severe setback for Berlusconi and means that a corruption trial in Milan, where he is accused of bribery and which was frozen last June when parliament approved the law, will now have to resume.

“Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.”

Good. Why in the hell should he be immune from prosecution? If you commit a crime you should pay, I don't care who it is. I have family in Italy and they have been really angry about this stuff.
