ROME (AFP) - Italy's supreme court on Tuesday upheld a two-year ban from public office against former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi who had filed an appeal with the country's top court.

The ban was imposed as part of a guilty verdict in a tax fraud conviction against the media magnate last year and blocks him from running in elections.
