Italian Female Adulterers can Cover Up Their Love Affairs: Supereme Court
Italian female adulterers can cover up a love affair, the country's Supreme Court has said.

The court said that a 48-year-old woman from Orbetello in Tuscany, named only as Carla, was within her rights to lie to police over having a lover.

The case arose when police arrested her boyfriend, Giovanni for making abusive phone calls to her husband, Vincenzo, reports The Telegraph.

When the police asked Carla whether she had lent her mobile phone to her lover, she said she did not have a lover and that she had not lent him her phone.

In court, her lawyers argued that she was trying ''to save herself from a grave and inevitable stain on her honour''.

Her defence said that she was in the process of separating from her husband and that the admission that she had taken a lover could be used in the divorce proceedings against her.

The judges of the Supreme Court agreed, saying that ''the fact of having an affair is a circumstance that could cause damage to her honour in the minds of her family and friends.''
