Ber­lus­coni may re­turn

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

An Italian court has lifted a ban on for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Sil­vio Ber­lus­coni hold­ing pub­lic of­fice.

He was barred in 2013 af­ter re­ceiv­ing a four-year sen­tence for tax fraud, al­though he never spent time in prison.

The court de­ci­sion comes just days af­ter he agreed to talks to help form a gov­ern­ment for Italy.
