Craxi sentenced

Milan - An Italian court found disgraced former prime minister Bettino Craxi guilty on further charges of corruption and sentenced him to eight years and three months in prison. The charges against Craxi, who lives in self-imposed exile in Tunisia, were connected to a scandal over the building of Milan's underground railway in the 1980s. Craxi said in a statement that he rejected the "absurd and unjust" condemnations. "I have never been corrupted and I had never corrupted anyone," he said. Reuter
