London, Feb 17 (ANI): Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has laughed off the looming prostitution trial he is about to face, saying that he is not worried at all.

Berlusconi, 74, made his first public comments, since being charged, during a news conference on economic themes in Rome, and he also said that he would not be speaking about the case “out of love of my country”.

“I can only say one thing, I’m not worried at all,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

The Premiere has been ordered to stand trial on charges he paid a 17-year-old Moroccan girl, Karima El Mahroug, for sex, and then used his influence to cover it up. (ANI)
