Berlusconi Slams "Feminist, Communist" Judges

Not happy with divorce settlement


MILAN court officials have defended the impartiality of their judges after ex-Premier Silvio Berlusconi blamed "feminist, communist" magistrates for a 200,000 euros ($A251,193) a day divorce settlement.

Berlusconi made the accusation in an interview on Tuesday with the La7 private television network and said he was appealing the settlement with his second ex-wife, Veronica Lario.
