FILE - In this July 28, 2011 file photo, then Lombardy region councillor Nicole Minetti sits in her office, in Milan, Italy. Karima el-Mahroug, a Moroccan woman at the center of a sex scandal involving former Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi, testified in Milan's courthouse, Italy, for the first time Friday, May 17, 2013 in the trial of three Berlusconi aides charged with recruiting her and other women for prostitution. El-Mahroug said one of the defendants, Nicole Minetti, had dressed up like a nun at a party at Berlusconi's villa outside Milan, and lifted her costume to show off her legs as she danced in the disco, which was outfitted with a lap-dance pole. El-Mahroug demonstrated from her seat how Minetti had raised her hemline. She said Minetti eventually took off her costume and was in just her lingerie. The trial is separate from one in which Berlusconi himself is charged with paying for sex with a minor and trying to cover it up. The three aides — Emilio Fede, an executive in Berlusconi's media empire; Minetti, a former dental hygienist, showgirl and local politician, and talent agent Dario "Lele" Mora — are accused of recruiting women for prostitution at the parties and abetting prostitution, including of a minor. They deny the charges. (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni, file)
