NBC News — Young showgirls testified monday in the sex trial against Italy's former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. One of the women, a model originally from Morocco, was seen entering the court house monday morning. She was one of the guests at billionaire Berlusconi's so-called "bunga, bunga" parties at his private residence.
In the trial, Berlusconi is accused of paying for sex with an underage night-club dancer. The former Prime Minister has denied all charges and said he was only trying to help the girl. In a previous hearing he told the court that he gave her nearly 66,000 dollars to buy a piece of laser equipment that would have allowed her to join a friend in setting up a beauty center.
