Italian high court overturns Berlusconi's immunity

Good news from Italy: the Consitutional Court has overturned the immunity law which blocked Premier Silvio Berlusconi's bribery trial.

Short background: "Berlusconi is accused of bribing judges to sway a ruling in the sale of state-held food conglomerate SME in the 1980s, years before he went into politics. He rejects the charges."

Berlusconi says he is simply the victim of a "political vendetta" by leftist magistrates. So that's what they call the shadowy left-wing world-wide conspiracy in Italy? Well, good luck to them.
