Berlusconi Angered Over Comments by EC Spokesman (News)

Prime Minister Berlusconi has threatened to take steps to block the work of the European Council of Ministers unless measures are implemented to prevent European commissioners and their spokespersons from speaking publicly on any subject.  Berlusconi is angered over the remarks made by Commission spokesman Dennis Abbott regarding the Somali migrants recently returned to Libya by Italy.

“Berlusconi said ‘We shall no longer vote, blocking in effect the workings of the European council [of ministers], unless it is decided that no European commissioner and no spokesperson may intervene publicly on any subject.’”
