Berlusconi's back: Former Italian PM will reform his Forza party

tyle="text-align: center;">


Controversial (or disgraced, take your pick) former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has announced that he's reforming his Forza party.

He's vowed to stay in politics - saying that it can be "done outside Parliament" - ahead of a Senate committee vote to decide whether he be allowed in public office.

Berlusconi also hit out at the rulings of judges, calling sentences he has received ridiculous. Yesterday a court ordered one of his firms to pay out £450m in damages.
