Processo Sme, Berlusconi assolto: "Il falso in bilancio non è più reato”

2008 - 01 - 30


l fatti non sono più previsti dalla legge come reato”. Con questa formula i giudici della I sezione penale del Tribunale di Milano hanno prosciolto Silvio Berlusconi dall’accusa di falso in bilancio nell’ultimo stralcio di procedimento nato con il caso-Sme. Gli episodi contestati all’ex premier, infatti, risalivano alla fine degli anni Ottanta.All’inizio dell’udienza, durata meno di un quarto d’ora, l’accusa aveva chiesto la prescrizione, mentre la difesa aveva sollecitato i giudici ad un verdetto di proscioglimento perché i fatti non costituiscono più reato. Era stato, infatti, proprio durante il governo Berlusconi che il falso in bilancio era stato derubricato. Una interpretazione, quest’ultima, che è stata accolta dai giudici.I fatti contestati all’ex premier risalivano al periodo che va dal 1986 al 1989, e, quindi, sarebbe comunque state coperti dalla prescrizione. I giudici, come detto, hanno però deciso di prosciogliere Berlusconi perché il fatto non è più previsto come reato, invece che dichiarare la prescrizione, come richiesto dal pm Ilda Boccassini. Il procedimento in cui Berlusconi era imputato di falso in bilancio era stato stralciato dal troncone principale del processo Sme, in quanto i giudici avevano investito la Corte europea affinché valutasse la congruità della normativa italiana sul falso in bilancio con le direttive comunitarie.

School Cop Investigated for Porn Link on Friend’s MySpace Profile

2008 - 01 - 29

You’re reading correctly. Gulf Middle School resource officer John Nohejl didn’t have porn on his MySpace profile, and he didn’t link to porn. But one of the 170-odd people on his friends list, which seems mostly populated by students at his school, had a link to a legal adult site. Now the New Port Richey Police Department and the Florida attorney general’s elite cyber crimes unit are investigating him for making adult content available to underage children.

Crackpot corner: The "Sex-Box” Race for President – By Kevin McCullough

I know that they all probably assume they have better, much more important, urgent, timely, things to campaign on, but I sure would like to get their individual takes on the new video game that one company is marketing to fifteen year old boys.It’s called “Mass Effect” and it allows its players – universally male no doubt – to engage in the most realistic sex acts ever conceived. One can custom design the shape, form, bodies, race, hair style, breast size of the images they wish to “engage” and then watch in crystal clear, LCD, 54 inch screen, HD clarity as the video game “persons” hump in every form, format, multiple, gender-oriented possibility they can think of.The objections to such filth should be simple to understand.Starting with the disgusting idea that one can “create” their own versions of what people look like, removing warts, moles, and bald spots while enhancing – shall we say – the extended features of the game’s characters tends to objectify women, sex, and human relationships. Right? We can all agree on this?Then there’s the dishonesty behind the game’ title. “Mass Effect” sounds like a war game with a deadly virus that is spreading unless the GI-Joes are able to defeat the evil and deadly substance and it’s covert war plan. By it’s design, kids could ask for it, or for their parents’ Best Buy Card to go purchase it with nary a raised eye-brow. Generic, non-descriptive, and relatively harmless.
