ROME, April 22 (UPI) -- Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's trial was postponed Monday while the Supreme Court considers moving it to another city, officials said.

Berlusconi wants his trial moved from Milan to the nearby city of Brescia because, he says, the Milan judges are biased against him, ANSA reported.

The judges rescheduled the trial for May 13.

The Supreme Court of Cassation is scheduled to meet May 6 to consider the change of venue in Berlusconi's trial on charges he paid an underage prostitute for sex.

The court will also hear Berlusconi's appeal of his conviction on tax fraud, for which he has been sentenced to four years in prison.
