Former Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi wears sunglasses as he attends the vote operations at the Senate, in Rome Saturday, March 16, 2013. Berlusconi was met with jeers from protesters as he arrived to take part in the Senate vote, a day after leaving a Milan hospital following a week's treatment for an eye inflammation. Before entering the Senate building, he turned to the protesters and said "shame on you." Berlusconi has been seeking to have two trials — a tax fraud appeal and a sex-for-hire hearing — postponed due to the eye condition. The courts responded by dispatching court-appointed doctors to verify its severity. (AP Photo/Mauro Scrobogna) ITALY OUT
