Magistrates in Italy protest Berlusconi's comments

Magistrates in Italy protest Berlusconi's comments

Magistrates throughout Italy are protesting Premier Silvio Berlusconi's latest attack against the judiciary.
Berlusconi said earlier this week that "communist prosecutors and communist judges in Milan" are persecuting him for a political vendetta. Berlusconi has a history of legal woes stemming from his business interests in Milan before he entered politics in the mid-1990s.
The association of Italy's magistrates has denounced Berlusconi's comments as "groundless and ridiculous." It announced assemblies on Thursday in courtrooms across Italy and said it is considering a strike.
Milan prosecutor Alfredo Robledo said if magistrates are "red" it is for the blood they have spilled defending the law and Italy's constitution.
