After reports suggested that she might have been poisoned, prosecutors in Italy said that Moroccan-born model Imane Fadil had high levels of heavy metals in her body, reports the Telegraph, quoting Italian media.

Speaking during a press conference, held Monday, Milan prosecutor Francesco Greco said that the key witness in former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s scandalous trial had high levels of cadmium and antimony, two chemicals.

According to Italian news agency ANSA, tests on «biological liquids had shown above-normal levels of antimony and cadmium».

These findings come as the model, who died on March the 1st after she was admitted to a hospital in Milan, told her lawyer and family that she may have been poisoned.

According to the Milan prosecutor, results revealed that the level of «cadmium in Fadil’s body was seven times higher than normal», while, «levels of antimony in her system were three times greater than normal», Greco said. The two substances are both toxic to human beings.

Moreover, primary results indicated that the Moroccan model, who testified against Berlusconi, confirmed the «presence of radioactive» substances.

On Monday, Milan prosecutor said that «no one is allowed to come close» to the body of Imane Fadil, which will undergo postmortem on Wednesday.

For the record, Italian media reported, last week, that the Moroccan-born model Imane Fadil, who was one of the attendees of Berlusconi’s sex parties, would have allegedly been poisoned with «radioactive substances».

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.

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.
