The Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, has failed to declare the presence of 30 Phoenician tombs on his land, dating back to 300BC.

But officials say there is no record of him reporting any finds – a legal requirement for all Italians – and opposition MPs have called for a probe.

In the conversations, said to be between Mr Berlusconi and Ms D’Addario, the man boasts to her about his sprawling villa in Sardinia, where Mr Berlusconi has his own ice cream parlour and artificial lakes. “Here we found 30 Phoenician tombs from [around] 300 BC,” the voice said to be Mr Berlusconi is heard to say.
