London, June 7 (ANI): Identity of the naked man, who was caught in a state of arousal next to Silvio Berlusconi's swimming pool at his Sardinian villa, has been revealed - it's Mirek Topolanek, the former Czech prime minister.
Spot on the Italian prime minister's reputation became darker after the publication of explicit photographs taken at his villa that showed topless women and a naked man, reports the Guardian.
Berlusconi had gained an injunction to prevent up to 700 photographs appearing in the Italian media. However, decision by the Spanish newspaper El Pams to publish five images from May 2008 has blown Topolanek's cover.
Topolanek, who was the Czech Prime Minister last summer at the time that the photograph was taken, admitted that he was the man seen cavorting at the Villa Certosa, which is at the centre of the growing scandal.
"It is me in the photograph," Topolanek said.
"But it has been modified. The picture is not authentic. This is absolutely insolent interference in my privacy. Besides, there is nothing wrong or compromising. It was a private holiday in closed premises, not outside on a beach," he added. (ANI)
