Moroccan-born model Imane Fadil, who was one of the attendees of former Italian Prime Minister’s sex parties, would have allegedly been poisoned with «radioactive substances», report Italian media.

Fadil, who is among the women who testified against Silvio Berlusconi in 2012, died on March the 1st, after she was admitted to a hospital in Milan. Suffering from severe stomach pain, the woman told her lawyers that she might have been poisoned.

Quoted by BBC, Italian online newspaper Corriere della Sera reported that 33-year-old Fadil «may have been poisoned with a radioactive substance».

The newspaper wrote that the hospital where the model was staying «sent samples» from her medical record to «a specialist laboratory». According to the same source «the results suggested the presence of a mix of radioactive substances, including cobalt».

These reports, however, were not confirmed by the Italian prosecutor, who told Reuters this week that Fadil’s medical records contained «several anomalies».

The latter added that «the doctors have not identified with any certainty any pathology which can explain the death».

An investigation was launched, Friday, by Italian magistrates to determine the reasons behind the Moroccan model’s death, especially as she was a key witness at Berlusconi’s «bunga bunga» parties’ case.

Italian media also said that the woman was in the process of writing a book on her «experiences» and that a copy of the manuscript was handed over to the magistrates investigating her death.

For the record, the death of Imane Fadil was dubbed «mysterious». The woman died two weeks ago in a hospital in Milan of chronic organ failure. A tragedy that was only revealed on Friday, March 15th.

Investigators reportedly interrogated Imane Fadil's brother, who would have said he was convinced that his sister was poisoned.

Originally from Morocco, she was one of three young women who said that Silvio Berlusconi's «bunga bunga» gatherings in his villa near Milan were sordid sex parties.
