Prosecutor Opens Door to Questions about Nature of Attack on Italian PM Berlusconi

January 22, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ Conspiracy theorists received more fuel for their fire as to whether Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was attacked in December or whether the incident was arranged in order for him to earn public sympathy.

The prosecutor investigating the attack has ordered an independent medical examination of Berlusconi’s injuries, which were claimed to be a fractured nose, facial lacerations and two broken teeth. A recent public appearance by the Prime Minister has called into question how one can recover from such injuries so quickly. All this comes on the heels of a YouTube video that highlights the apparent lack of blood on Berlusconi after the attack.

Those in the Berlusconi camp call such accusations of a set-up grotesque. Yet, the investigation goes forward.
