Berlusconi awaits fraud verdict

Guilty verdict could see former Italian prime minister banned from holding public office.

    Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has faced a raft of criminal charges, but so far it has failed to do much damage to his political career.

    But Berlusconi's luck could be about to change.
