Trevor Mallard likes to think he is a bit of stick man. He is known to run his glad eye over each of the new laies in parliament and he even manages to run one up a fair few of them. However Trevor’s peccadillos with the ladies pale into insignificance when compared with Silvio Berlusconi:
Showgirls dressed as nuns performed a pole-dancing striptease for former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi at a ‘bunga bunga’ party at his luxury villa at Arcore, a Milan court heard on Monday.
Giving evidence one of the guests, Imane Fadil, 27, said former TV showgirl Nicole Minetti, 28, and another guest Barbara Fagioli, 26, performed a dual ‘Sister Act’ striptease for Mr Berlusconi at the first party Fadil attended at the villa in February 2010.
“We were standing and having a drink at the bar, when Fagioli began performing in the ‘bunga bunga’ room. After 10 minutes she disappeared with Minetti. Then they presented themselves in black nun’s tunics with a crucifix on their breast and a white veil and did a performance that I never expected.
“They began to throw themselves around a pole, dancing a type of ‘Sister Act’. Then they stripped down to their underwear and continued to dance about. I was shocked.”
Morrocccan-born Miss Fadil, a model, was giving evidence at the trial of Mr Berlusconi in which he is accused of paying for sex with an under age prostitute, a Moroccan-born exotic dancer nicknamed Ruby the Heartstealer, and of abusing his office by trying to have her released from police custody.
When Mr Berlusconi saw she was embarrassed on that occasion, Imane said he stopped the striptease and took her on a personal tour of the villa and showed her his office which was full of gifts for guests.
