Four times Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has been ordered to stand trial on charges of judicial corruption, a legal source said.
Berlusconi, leader of the centre-right Forza Italia (Go Italy!) party, is accused of having bribed a witness to give false testimony at a trial in 2013, at which he was accused of having sex with an under-aged prostitute.
The billionaire media tycoon was widely written off after he quit as prime minister in 2011 amid a sex scandal.

But he has made a remarkable political comeback and his Forza Italia party is now the linchpin of a centre coalition that leads in opinion polls ahead of next year’s election.
Berlusconi is barred from holding public office because of a 2013 conviction for tax fraud.
The trial will begin in the Tuscan city of Siena in February, the source said.
