1 Min Read

ROME, Jan 14 (Reuters) - A prostitution investigation over Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's dealings with a teenaged nightclub dancer is "absurd and groundless", his lawyers said on Friday.

The lawyers said in a statement that the allegations raised by the probe had already been denied by the main players and witnesses in the case. They called the probe a "very serious interference in the private life" of the prime minister.
