George Clooney Testifies in Fraud Trial


George Clooney


Appearing in Milan court on Friday, July 16, the American actor says, 'I came here because I believe in the judicial system and because there were people using my name to take advantage of people.'

George Clooney testified in a Milan, Italy court on Friday, July 16 as part of a fraud trial involving three men accused of using the actor's name for a fashion label. The trio is accused of fraud, forgery and possession of stolen goods after allegedly taking Clooney's name and using it for a planned fashion show at a Milan hotel in April 2008.

The "Ocean's Eleven" actor gave evidence against the three men - Vincenzo Cannalire, Francesco Galdelli and Vanja Goffi - telling the court, "I came here because I believe in the judicial system and because there were people using my name to take advantage of people." During the proceedings, Clooney was handed several pictures which appeared to show him alongside the defendants, but after putting on glasses to examine the images he insisted they were fake, telling Cannalire "Good work. You should be proud of yourself."

Judge Pietro Caccialanza thanked Clooney for his evidence, telling him "This hearing lasted as long as a film." On leaving the courtroom the actor told Reuters, "It was not too tough. It's easy when you can prove that you are absolutely right."
