Berlusconi 'asked his party girls to sport AC Milan shirts'

world Updated: Mar 18, 2011 16:56 IST

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, embroiled in a number of sex scandals, reportedly asked some of the beauties at his villa parties to sport the shirts of AC Milan, the club he owns, for stripteases.

A lover of one of the girls told British tabloid The Sun that the Italian Premier "would ask them to wash because they gave off a bad odour".

Berlusconi is to face trial on April 6 for allegedly paying for sex with Morocco-born erotic dancer El Mahroug when she was 17 and allegedly working as a prostitute. Having sex with a underage prostitute is a crime in Italy, which carries a penalty of up to three years in jail.

In all, 33 girls are named in court papers, including El Mahroug, now 18.

The Italian PM denies all the allegations, saying that at 74 he is too old to have bedded that many girls in the two months his accusers claim. "Even though I'm a bit of a rascal -- 33 girls in two months is too many, even for a 30-year-old," he said.
