Italian Premier Mario Monti has suggested that soccer in the country be suspended two to three years because of the latest match-fixing scandal.

Dawn raids on Monday resulted in 14 arrests, including Lazio captain Stefano Mauri. That brings the number of suspects arrested to about 50 since last year. Many more have been placed under investigation.

Monti said Tuesday he thinks it would be a good idea if Italian soccer was stopped for “two to three years” although he adds that “it is not a proposal by the government but a question I am asking.”

Italy defender Domenico Criscito was left off the Euro 2012 squad after being put under investigation. Juventus coach Antonio Conte was notified he is being investigated for alleged wrongdoing while coaching Siena in 2010-2011.

19 May 2012          13:54 ET

A bomb blast outside a school in the south Italian city of Brindisi has killed a teenage girl and injured five other people, at least one seriously.

Students were arriving for Saturday morning lessons when a device planted in a waste bin exploded, city mayor Mimmo Consales told reporters.

No-one said they had planted the device but Mr Consales suggested a Mafia link.

A crowd of stunned local people gathered at the scene of the blast, which has shocked Italy.

The school is named after Judge Francesca Morvillo Falcone, a victim of a notorious Mafia bombing in Sicily nearly 20 years ago.

She was killed along with her husband, anti-Mafia judge Giovanni Falcone, on 23 May 1992.

Prime Minister Mario Monti, who is at Camp David attending a G8 summit, said his government was determined to prevent a return to the violence of the past.

He said the bombing was a “tragic” and “criminal” act that was “without precedent”.

French President Francois Hollande, also at the summit, expressed his country’s “deep solidarity” with Italy in the face of the “odious attack”.

‘Books on fire’

Pupils of the vocational school were milling around the front of the building when the blast occurred at around 07:45 (05:45 GMT).

An employee at the prosecutor’s office next to the school told La Repubblica daily: “I was opening the window and the blast wave hit me.

“I saw kids on the ground. All blackened. Their books on fire. It was terrifying.”

A tearful middle-aged woman, who was still visibly shocked, was quoted by Reuters as saying: “It was an incredibly powerful explosion.

“I saw a girl lying on the ground and another one who got up and started shouting.”

The girl killed was named as 16-year-old Melissa Bassi.

A second injured girl, also 16, was initially reported as dead by police sources. However, she is alive though in a “very serious condition”, local hospital director Paola Ciannamea said.

The four other victims being treated are all suffering from extensive burns, including one who risks losing her legs and another who has serious injuries to her chest, Italian media say.

Television footage of the scene shows a concrete wall blackened by fire next to the school’s entrance gate, while broken glass and other debris litter the pavement.

Valeria Vitale, the school’s director, told La Repubblica that staff at the school had been among the first to come to the victims’ assistance.

“The students are in shock,” she said.

‘Absolutely barbarous’

A bomb attack near Brindisi blamed on the Mafia earlier this month narrowly missed killing the head of an anti-racket association, according to AFP.

A family sends their child, an adolescent, to school and the child does not come back ”

Nichi Vendola Governor of Apulia

Correspondents say the memory of a spate of Mafia bombings against civilians in the early 1990s is still raw in many Italians’ minds.

The Sacra Corona Unita Mafia, active in the region around Brindisi, Apulia, is heavily involved in trafficking drugs, arms and people smuggling and human trafficking.

Noting the approaching anniversary of the Falcone attack, Mayor Consales said: “We understand well this symbol and the significance of this event.”

Nichi Vendola, governor of Apulia, said after the blast: “To even think about killing children is absolutely barbarous.

“A family sends their child, an adolescent, to school and the child does not come back and another one has a daughter with bloodstains on the school backpack and notebooks.

“Whoever is responsible for this has committed an act that will go down in the history of barbarity. We need to react with severity.”

Interior Minister Anna Maria Cancellieri said she was “struck” by the name of the school targeted but warned that investigators had still no grounds for blaming the bomb on organised crime.

“It’s not the usual [method] for the Mafia,” she told SkyTG24 television, adding there were “numerous hypotheses” as to the motive.

As the investigation continues, all of Italy is demanding answers, the BBC’s Alan Johnston reports from Rome.

File:Silvio Berlusconi (2010)-modif.png

5:07PM BST 06 Apr 2011

The hearing was a bitter disappointment for the media crews who had converged on Milan from as far as Russia and Australia, and for his critics in Italy who were eagerly awaiting the spectacle of the prime minister being grilled by the three formidable women judges presiding over the trial.

Mr Berlusconi was holding a ministerial meeting in Rome and was not present to answer the charges against him – that on 13 occasions last year he paid for sex with an allegedly under age prostitute and then committed an abuse of office by ordering police to release her from custody when she was arrested for stealing.

He denies any wrongdoing and the Moroccan-born teenager, Karima El Mahroug, also known by the stage name Ruby the Heart Stealer, insists she never slept with him.

At the time of the alleged offences she was 17 – a year beneath the legal age of prostitution under Italian law.

She was just one of dozens of young models, showgirls and aspiring actresses who reportedly entertained the prime minister with strip teases and pole dances at his residence outside Milan, in return for cash, jewellery and help with their careers. 

The trial was adjourned until May 31, to give the judges enough time to consider a request by a women’s organisation, Arcidonna, to be admitted as a civil party to the case on the basis that Mr Berlusconi’s behaviour has “offended the dignity” of all Italian women.

Paola Boccardi, Miss El Mahroug’s lawyer, said her client would not apply to become a civil complainant in the trial, a move that would have allowed her to seek financial damages from Mr Berlusconi if he is found guilty.

“Karima does not believe herself to have suffered any damage from having been present at Arcore, or having visited the premier,” she said.

The trial is expected to take months, if not years, because of the grindingly slow pace at which the Italian court system works and the sheer volume of material to be scrutinised.

Prosecutors have filed 20,000 pages of evidence and have requested that 132 people be called as witnesses.

Mr Berlusconi’s lawyers have presented a witness list of 78 people, including the actor George Clooney, whom Miss El Mahroug claims was at one of the prime minister’s dinners – an account the Hollywood star denies.

Rival groups of protesters hurled insults at each other outside the court building, which was ringed by paramilitary police equipped with riot shields and helmets.

“It’s all false and it is an outrage that the investigators have spent millions of euros wiretapping the phones of the prime minister and his friends,” said Mariagrazia Piracci, 53, who sells advertising space. “He is absolutely innocent.”

But anti-Berlusconi demonstrators carried banners claiming that Mr Berlusconi’s wealth and power had put democracy at risk.

On the eve of the hearing, Mr Berlusconi was able to secure the approval, through his coalition’s parliamentary majority, of a motion that challenges the Milan court’s jurisdiction and argues that the case should instead be heard by a special tribunal of ministers.

The approval of the motion will not stop the trial going ahead for the time being but is due to be considered by Italy’s Constitutional Court, which will decide in coming weeks whether to transfer the trial to the tribunal in Rome, which deals with offences committed by MPs.

Silvio Berlusconi was born on September 29th, 1936 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silvio_Berlusconi

September 29th, 1936

September 29th

9 + 29 +2+0+1+0 = 41 = his personal year (from September 29th, 2010 to September 28th, 2011) = Significant age difference between yourself and the person you are involved with.

41 year + 4 (April) = 45 = his personal month (from May 29th, 2011 to June 28th, 2011) = Secrets.  Mysteries.  Investigation.  Probing.

—————————————————————————————

Italian prosecutors have opened an investigation into a suspected attempt to falsify the birth records of the teenager at the centre of the underage sex scandal engulfing Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

Judicial sources said the investigation had been opened against unknown individuals who were alleged to have tried to bribe a Moroccan official to change the birth records of Karima El Mahroug, better known under her stage name Ruby.

Berlusconi has been charged with paying for sex with El Mahroug last year when she was under the legal age limit of 18, and with abusing the powers of his office by intervening with police in a bid to cover up his connection with her.

His trial is scheduled to begin on April 6.

Berlusconi has denied having sex with El Mahroug, who has admitted receiving 7,000 euros (6,000 pounds) from the premier. He has said he merely wanted to help someone in difficulty.

According to the left-wing daily Il Fatto Quotidiano, two Italian men approached a registry official in the Moroccan town of Fkih Ben Salah last month and offered her thousands of euros to change records showing El Mahroug was born on November 1, 1992.

Prostitution is not illegal in Italy, but it is an offence to pay for sex with someone under the age of 18.

As well as denying he had ever had sex with El Mahroug, Berlusconi has also denied ever paying for sex with anyone.

Karima El Mahroug was born on November 1st, 1992 according to http://www.facebook.com/pages/Karima-el-Mahroug/179288852110618

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the month of birth and the first three letters of the name.

Karima El Mahroug    November 1st, 1992

11 (November) + 11 (K is the 11th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 18 (r is the 18th letter of the alphabet) = 41

So from ages zero to twenty seven she has the number 41 going on.

41 = Significant difference in age between yourself and the person you’re involved with.

41 rules her ages zero to twenty-seven.  It is Silvio Berlusconi’s 41 personal year.  When the number 41 comes up, that’s when they get to live/experience what they are here to live/experience.  She is significantly younger than him, and he is significantly older than her (41).
