Berlusconi's 'bunga bunga' party girls to break silence

Berlusconi's 'bunga bunga' party girls to break silence

Chiara Danese and Ambra Battilana, both 19, have declared themselves "victims" in the civil case which is running concurrently with Berlusconi's trial for under age sex with the 17-year-old prostitute Karima El-Mahroug, the Daily Telegraph reported.

According to the report, both the girls have told investigators that they were encouraged to take part in "an indecent sex game".

They have described how offended and horrified they were by the activities at the parties that were held at the 74-year Italian leader's villa near Milan.

Both women are now civil plaintiffs in the case against Berlusconi insisting that they suffered "damages morally and to their reputations" after their names emerged in documents connected to the case.

Neither of them has been named as among the 33 women, who prosecutors said were paid for sex but they have decided to speak out after being labelled escorts in their home region of Piedmont, where they were former beauty queens.

Their testimony is at odds with Berlusconi's claims that the parties were "simple, elegant dinners" and they could be the start of a crack in the defence he has stuck to so solidly.
Berlusconi has been denying all the charges.
