MILAN — Former Premier Silvio Berlusconi has completed his community service stint on an Alzheimer's ward, part of a tax-fraud sentence.

The three-time former premier made no statements as he left the Sacra Famiglia center on Friday, the last of his four-hour weekly stints.

He quickly dived back into politics, meeting later Friday with the leader of the anti-immigration Northern League as the splintered center-right puts out feelers for alliances for regional elections in May.

Berlusconi's legal battles are not over. Italy's highest court rules next week on his acquittal on a charge of having paid for sex with an under-age prostitute and using his influence to cover it up. He is also under investigation in Milan for judicial corruption for allegedly paying off witnesses in that case.
