MILAN, April 10 A Milan prosecutor on Thursday
recommended that former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi should
serve his one-year sentence for tax fraud doing community
service, as requested by Berlusconi's lawyers, a judicial source
Lawyers for the media tycoon earlier asked for their client
to serve his sentence helping out in a home for the disabled.
The court is expected to make its decision later this month.
Berlusconi could in theory be sent to prison or put under house
arrest, but as both the prosecutor and his lawyers favour
community service, this is the most likely outcome.
