A Moroccan model who regularly attended former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s raunchy “bunga-bunga” sex parties died this month — and investigators are now probing the case as a possible murder. The question is whether the woman, Imane Fadil, was poisoned?
The 33-year-old Imane Fadil died in a hospital in Milan on the first of March. She had come there at the end of January with stomach pain. To her brother and to her lawyer, she said she thought she was poisoned.
The autopsy shows that she had a mix of radioactive substances in the blood, according to the prosecution chamber, which is now investigating if she was murdered.
Imane Fadil testified in “Rubygate”, the trial in which former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was accused of having sex with a minor girl.
Now, Imane Fadil was a key witness in a corruption trial in which Berlusconi was accused of trying to silence witnesses.
The former model, which has been on Berlusconi’s so-called bunga-bungi parties, has told Italian media that she has received money directly from Berlusconi and that his staff had recently offered her money to refrain from witnessing.
Silvio Berlusconi has now told Italian media that he has never met Imane Fadil.
Berlusconi was found guilty of paying the dancer for sex, as well as abuse of power, in June 2013, the BBC reported. His case was ultimately overturned a year later.
