Ruby was taken on the case without Il Cavaliere

The second hearing of the process 'Rubygate' before the Court in Milan has begun this morning with the absence of the head of the Italian Government, Silvio Berlusconi, who yesterday suffered a severe electoral defeat in its traditional stronghold Milan. Berlusconi is in Romania for an official visit and will not attend the trial, which will be prosecuted for an alleged crime of child prostitution and abuse of power.

According to the Office, the Prime Minister would have paid for sexual services of Karima El Mahroug, better known as 'Ruby' or 'Ruby heartthrob', between February and May 2010, when the girl was still a minor. This is a crime of up to three years in prison in Italy. Both Ruby (which is also today in the trial) as the 'premier' deny the facts.

'Il Cavaliere' will be equally prosecuted for abuse of power, as the prosecution claims that he pressured the Milan police to release on one occasion to 'Ruby', who had been arrested for theft. Berlusconi has said it intervened to prevent a diplomatic incident, believing that the young Moroccan was the niece of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Today's hearing will focus on issues preliminary and Berlusconi's defense has been advanced that will do everything possible so that the Court of Milan does not have competition.
