Silvio Berlusconi hosted wild parties at his villa outside Milan including strip and lap dance shows nicknamed “The Bunga Bunga,” a witness at the former prime minister's trial said on Monday.
Model Imane Fadil said the first time she went to a party she was given 2 000 euros ($2 600) in cash by Berlusconi, who told her: “Don't be offended.”
That night she said she saw two young women in nun costumes with “black tunics, white veils and crosses” stripping in front of the prime minister.
One of the two was Nicole Minetti, now a regional councillor for Berlusconi's People of Freedom party in Milan, Moroccan-born Fadil said.
She alleged that women who stayed the night were paid more for sex and that “they did everything to try and stay”. She said she had heard of Berlusconi having sex for money with at least two of the women invited to his parties.
