MILAN, ITALY - MARCH 28: Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi waves after the preliminary hearing of the Mediatrade case at court on March 28, 2011 in Milan, Italy. Berlusconi faces allegations of tax fraud and embezzlement in the case, over acquisitions of TV rights for inflated prices, allegations which he has denied and described as "ridiculous and groundless". Silvio Berlusconi, who is already a defendant in two ongoing trials, said he wanted to attend the hearing so he could defend himself in front of the Italian people.
