Berlusconi rival seeking $41M in moral damagesDecember 11, 2013 @ 4:52 am
MILAN (AP) - An Italian industrialist's company says it is suing Silvio Berlusconi's holding company for 30 million euros ($41 million) on top of the nearly 500 million euros it was previously awarded.
The CIR Group said in a statement Wednesday it was seeking moral damages for a corruption case involving the purchase of the Mondadori publishing house.
Industrialist Carlo De Benedetti, whose holdings include the Espresso editorial group, lost ownership of Mondadori to Berlusconi in a bitter legal fight. Three Berlusconi associates and a judge were convicted in 2007 of corruption in the case, leading to the separate civil damage claim.
Berlusconi and his family have contested the allegations and the damages.
