When Silvio Berlusconi asked to ‘fondle’ women councillor at earthquake siteLondon, May 7 : Gaff-prone Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is once again in the news for making suggestive remarks to a female councillor while touring an earthquake-hit region.

Lia Giovanzzi Beltrami, 41, has confirmed that the 72-year-old premier made the remark in the Abruzzo region.

According to the Sun, Berlusconi asked Beltrami: "Can I fondle you?"

A video showing the incident has been posted on a newspaper website.

The footage shows the PM making the comment as he puts his arm around Beltrami.

Beltrami said: "I was left annoyed by what he said."

Berlusconi's wife, 52, has said that she wants a divorce from him because she is tired of seeing him with younger women.

Almost 297 died and thousands were left homeless in Abruzzo. (ANI)
