The sentence of Berlusconi’s former lawyer was recalled

The sentence was recalled due to the expired statute of limitation of the case

In brief: The sentence of David Mills was recalled.

This Thursday the Italian Court of Appeal recalled a sentence given to David Mills, the former lawyer of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. Though Mr. Mills wasn’t acquitted, the statute of limitation of the case expired and so the sentence was recalled.

Berlusconi’s ex-lawyer was accused in the acceptance of a $600,000 bribe from his client. In returned he agreed for false swearing. He was found guilty in February 2009.

Mr. Mills is obliged to pay €250,000 to the Italian government for damaging the image of country’s officials. He will also have to pay €10,000 to the court as the defrayal of expenses.

The hearings of the Berlusconi’s case will begin on February, 27. The Italian Prime Minister is accused in financial machinations.
