Italy Court Lifts Constraints on Berlusconi After Tax Fraud Sentence

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi will be free to travel abroad after a court in Milan declared on Tuesday that he had fully served his sentence for tax fraud, although he will still be prevented from running for election. No comment was immediately available from the 78-year-old media tycoon's lawyers. Berlusconi was given a four-year jail sentence for his part in a tax fraud scheme at his Mediaset broadcasting empire but he was only ordered to perform a year of community service at an old people's home, a period he completed last month.
