Bloomberg said:

Silvio Berlusconi, the billionaire former Italian prime minister, was found guilty of tax fraud and sentenced to four years in prison in a film-rights case involving his Mediaset SpA (MS) television company.

Fedele Confalonieri, chief executive officer of Berlusconi’s media company Mediaset SpA and a co-defendant in the trial, was absolved by the court.
