London, Feb 1 (ANI): Nicole Minetti, Silvio Berlusconi's former dental hygienist, has been interrogated over claims that she procured sex workers for the Italian premiere.
Berlusconi is alleged to have paid to sleep with Moroccan dancer Karima El-Mahroug when she was 17, and then pressuring police to free her when she was arrested on suspicion of theft, reports the Guardian.
Magistrates who quizzed Minetti suspect she recruited women to attend Berlusconi's alleged sex parties and paid their rent and bills as well as participating herself in topless revels.
Berlusconi even called Minetti "a splendid person", who was "worth more than many of the so-called ladies on the show" In a recent phone call to an Italian TV show,
However, wiretaps suggest Minetti was increasingly anxious about Berlusconi's behaviour, claiming, "he ... has ruined my life".
Minetti was appointed a regional councillor in Lombardy by Berlusconi after she treated his teeth when he was hit in the face by man wielding a model of Milan cathedral in 2009. (ANI)
