MILAN Jan 14 Italian prosecutors confirmed on
Friday that they were investigating Prime Minister Silvio
Berlusconi over his dealings with a teenaged nightclub dancer.
In a statement, prosecutors said they had issued summons to
Berlusconi and his lawyers in the case.
An investigation source told Reuters earlier on Friday that
the probe included underage prostitution allegations.
The magistrates are also examining whether Berlusconi, who
denies any wrongdoing, exerted improper pressure omn police
officers to have the girl released when she was detained over
theft allegations, the source said.
