Mondadori publishing group building is seen in Milan, Friday, July 8, 2011. Premier Silvio Berlusconi on last Tuesday hastily withdrew a measure that would have allowed his family investment company to delay paying a hefty fine, following public outcry. The measure would have forced judges to delay payment of especially high fines until all appeals have been exhausted. Berlusconi’s family Fininvest investment company has been ordered to pay Ä750 million ($1.1 billion) to a rival for alleged corruption in the takeover of the Mondadori publishing house in the 1990s. A verdict in the appeal of the two-year-old decision is expected this week. (AP Photo/Luca Bruno)
