Freudian slip

Italin Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, on his legal troubles:

The problem, he explained, was that "In absolute terms, I am the most legally persecuted man of all times, in the whole history of mankind, worldwide, because I have been subjected to more than 2,500 court hearings and I have the good luck – having worked well in the past and having accumulated an important wealth – to have been able to spend more than €200m in consultants and judges ... I mean in consultants and lawyers."
(Emphasis added)

A Freudian slip, perhaps?
