Italy's top court (Court of Cassation) definitively cleared Silvio Berlusconi on the 11 March 2015 of charges that he paid for sex with an underage dancer and then abused his position as prime minister to cover it up.

The decision would allow Mr Berlusconi, who served three terms as Prime Minister of Italy, free to resume a central role in politics leading his centre-right Forza Italia party, although there were still other court cases pending.
