Berlusconi’s party, the People of Freedom (to be soon replaced by a revamped Go Italy !), issued a very harsh statement in response to the recent judgement by the Supreme Court: ‘Either politics are able to find solutions in order to reinstate an ordinary balance between the State powers, and at the same time make possible the political action by the leader of the first Italian party, or Italy is really at risk of a form of civil war whose outcome would be unpredictable for everyone’.
The statement was signed by senator Sandro Bondi, one of the three National Coordinators of Mr Berlusconi’s party. Such party has been pressuring President Giorgio Napolitano to issue a pardon to Mr Berlusconi. It also made clear that the Letta Government should reform the Italian judiciary or go.
