ROME (Reuters) - Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi was ordered on Thursday to stand trial on charge of judicial corruption, a legal source said.
Berlusconi, leader of the centre-right Forza Italia (Go Italy!) party, is accused of having bribed a witness to give false testimony at a trial in 2013, at which he was accused of having sex with an under-aged prostitute.
The trial will begin in the Tuscan city of Siena in February, the source said.
