Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has been sentenced to a one-year jail term for his involvement in the illegal publication of wiretaps.
Mr Berlusconi allegedly made public the contents of a confidential phone call in a case related to a 2005 banking scandal in his brother Paolo Berlusconi's newspaper Il Giornale.
Berlusconi, who has denied any wrongdoing, can seek to have the decision overturned before a court of appeal.
Under Italian law, he is not expected to serve any prison term until all possible appeal trials have been carried out.
His brother has received a sentence of two years and three months.
