The request for a psychiatric report against Silvio Berlusconi shook the world of politics and even a long-time opponent of the Cav expressed solidarity with the decision of the judges. “Berlusconi’s psychiatric report is incredible. It is right to check if he is sick or not, but asking for such an expertise takes on the contours of a useless, coarse provocation. All we can do is confirm that in recent years there has been a persecution, I could not otherwise define the psychiatric report for an 85-year-old man. It is right that Berlusconi presents an appeal, and I say to the left, the time will come to give a political judgment on his affair without trying to fight it through the courts ”, the words of Matteo Renzi, interviewed by Barbara Jerkov in Siena presenting ‘Countercurrent’.
The leader of Italia Viva, after having had his say on the twist of the Ruby ter trial, also expressed himself on the rumors related to an alleged meeting in Sardinia with Berlusoni himself during the summer: “I have not seen Berlusconi since January 2015 and I’ve never talked to him about Quirinale. Of judicial events yes, of other no. I remember that Berlusconi has never voted to trust my government and that I am proud to have elected Sergio Mattarella, when the dialogue started with the well-known Nazarene pact was broken ”. The former secretary of the Democratic Party therefore denied the meeting with the former Prime Minister, who would have met him as part of a strategy to get to the Hill.
