MILAN — Judge Antonella Brambilla was visibly irritated on Wednesday as she presided over a hearing in the ongoing tax trial of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
In an authoritative manner that left little room for maneuvering, Brambilla decided to slash the number of witnesses presented by the defendants’ lawyers and expected to take the stand in future hearings, defining them as “irrelevant.” The only two witnesses expected to take the stand for company manager Antoine Noella were ruled out, and three of the witnesses called by the designers’ lawyer Massimo Dinoia were also invalidated. There was also some quibbling over scheduling upcoming hearings as Brambilla demanded consultants take the stand before the witnesses.
