He told us that during his time in prison he had had several advances from other inmates, but never experienced violence.

"There are various vicissitudes of attention, not violence. […] There are very specific corners in the showers and in the stairwell, dangerous spots where there are no cameras and there are moments of transition when the guards don’t follow you. So, that's where the inmates who want to pursue someone or attack another inmate, get violent” [...] "I had never been subject to violence...

[...] Later he talks about compensation for damages suffered in recent years, but remains very reserved. Sollecito on the topic: "This thing is something I deal with my lawyers, what I want most, in fact, is to bring to everyone's attention what are errors and individual responsibilities. It would be fair that those who did wrong take their responsibilities ... I do not seek revenge; I don't want these people to be punished."

Raffaele Sollecito talked to Salvo Sottile in an exclusive interview with "Domenica In"; about the hardships experienced in prison, the relationship with Amanda Knox, and relief he felt after his acquittal. With analysis rather than glossy phrases, Sollecito, spoke at length about his misadventure, declaring himself repeatedly ready to overcome it. To the specific question of Sottile about his current relationship with Knox, he replied by calling her ‘a friend from whom one rarely hears.’

The project manager of Domenica In, today, appeared in the video, at the end of the interview with Raffaele Sollecito, unwittingly sending down the drain all journalistic work carried out earlier by Salvo Sottile and also by Paola Perego. Costanzo endorsed Sollecito, in a sort of pious work of rehabilitation before the general public (because unfortunately for the populace a judgment of acquittal is not enough), as (guess who?) Barbara D'Urso would.

Peter, Paul, and Amanda Knox - manipulating the murder of Meredith Kercher
By Liz Houle

[…] Immediately after Knox and Sollecito were convicted of the murder in 2009, Ciolino and van Sant were prominently displayed on American television where they gave impassioned seemingly rehearsed, monologues of their 'expert' opinions of the case. […]

Americans were misled from the start of the coverage of the murder case of Meredith Kercher. This one-sided campaign, ostensibly designed and implemented by a public relations firm helped to influence politicians and this seems to have directly led to the Italian Supreme Courts shocking decision to acquit Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito due to lack of evidence.

The prejudiced media manipulation didn't stop with the news coverage by Peter and Paul. Next on the agenda was to disparage the reputation of the prosecutor of the original trial which found Knox and Sollecito guilty.

On the cover of A step out of the night, Sollecito’s face appears in the foreground, illuminated by a light in front of him, in a rather direct visual quote (and anything but original, however) of the famous biography of Andre Agassi, Open. The slogan at the bottom, "All that you have never imagined about me”, contrasts a bit with the first few pages of the book: Sollecito said he was "a child who didn’t like to go out and play outside", preferring the company of toys and video games, and had begun to have a more active social life starting from adolescence, by frequenting a video store [videoteca] in his hometown.

Sollecito appeals to Mattarella

Raffaele Sollecito, interviewed by Radio Radicale, has appealed to the head of State Sergio Mattarella, as President of the CSM, for an internal investigation to be conducted to find out who actually did wrong in the investigation into the murder of Meredith Kercher. He then announced that he had joined the Radical Party.

"My concern is to make people who were wrong assume their responsibilities," said the definitively acquitted of the crime.

Perugia: "Mattarella discover the truth"

The request "My concern - said Sollecito to Radio Radicale - is to make the people who did wrong assume their responsibilities. I appeal to President Mattarella who is the president of the CSM to conduct an internal investigation to determine who has the responsibility and let the public know who actually did wrong in this long tragedy."

During the interview, said the broadcaster, were discussed "judicial errors committed by the prosecutor’s office [procura] of Perugia," experiences in prison and "the role of the media in constructing a false image of the diabolical couple Raffaele Sollecito-Amanda Knox.”

Article in Settimanale Giallo:
Meredith Kercher’s parents, a student murdered in Perugia, fight
“We will not stop until our Meredith has justice”
By Gian Pietro Fiore

The lawyer for the Kerchers, Francesco Maresca, “For 50 judges the evidence was sufficient. The Supreme Court did not take this into account and issued an unacceptable verdict. We will evaluate what to do.” Judge Mignini, who arrested Amanda and Raffaele, defends himself: “I would do everything the way I did.”

He received 66,000 Euros from the Puglia region for a start up that commemorates the dead and wrote a book. "Amanda asked me to send it to her. We aren't friends'

Appointment at the McDonald's in Bisceglie, [Sollecito] arrives in a black Porsche. "It belongs to a lawyer, a family friend: I borrowed it because my Abarth 500 is in a workshop." He's plainly dressed. Checkered shirt, aviator jacket, his hair in a tail: Raffaele Sollecito knows he will be X-rayed and scanned for the first impression; with that car there, it's puzzled amazement. "Take her, okay? Do you mind giving me a ride to an accountant's office? Then we'll go to Giovinazzo, where I was born."

66,000 Euro in public money to Sollecito for a startup commemorating the dead
By Franco Grilli

Corriere della Sera tells us about his new life as a free person, an owner of a startup that he had thought up during his time in prison. It’s called “Memories” and is a limited liability company that “was also created to commemorate the dead.” It weighed on him not being able to go to his mother’s grave while he was in jail, so that’s how he got his idea. A confirmation of the soundness of the idea came from the Puglia region that awarded him 66,000 Euro in a competition for those under 35 and unemployed. A sum of money that will be paid out in annual installments spread out over three years, as a mix of a half repayable loan and half outright grant, to design a portal and app Memories.

There will be shortly or perhaps in a year or two a new startup, "Memories", a sort of social network dedicated to honoring the dead. Frankly, I can’t say whether this is an irresistible shit or a good idea in a world gone mad and bleak; what is certain though that it will cost the citizens almost two hundred thousand Euro: half - in grants and thus handed over for the maintenance of a startappista, the other half perhaps repayable if ever it were to operate.

Raffaele Sollecito has given an interview to Corriere della Sera, in which he talks about his work projects.
At the end of the interview, the young man throws a sort of "appeal" that he would like to go see the American star Marilyn Manson in Florence, on November 9, but tickets are sold out.
"Can anyone help me to go see it?"
An appeal made by Sollecito has aroused curiosity and some irony on the net.
The young engineer now behaves like an established star?

Chianciano Terme (Siena) - "I have a social objective, to know how things work in our country. I have no desire to go into politics or do politics." Said Raffaele Sollecito, responding to reporters upon his arrival in Chianciano Terme (Siena), the Hotel Excelsior, where he will speak at the congress of the Italian Radicals. Sollecito – who, after eight years of trials and five sets of proceedings, was acquitted by the Supreme Court of the charge of having participated in the murder of Meredith Kercher – will talk about his experiences in prison and in the courtroom.

Raffaele Sollecito flirts with politics
By Mario Valenza

“There are absurd and inhuman conditions.” To support his ideas are a collection of radicals led by Pannella. Sollecito attended the Party Congress, in Chianciano Terme, and there he explained how the prison was “a school of recruitment for the Mafia” and the life behind bars should be changed.

Sollecito was keen to point out that he had no desire to really get into politics. Leaning on the party, however, is the only way to fight against conditions in prison and discover methods to improve the return of prisoners to everyday life, once back in freedom. "The prisoners, when they get out, find themselves isolated in society. There is no reintegration policy. During detention the detainee is abandoned and, once outside, has no chance of entering the society that rejects him," said Sollecito remembering his experience in prison.

And, in this regard, he recalled: "I realize(d) that the TV and newspapers tell of a reality that does not exist, a muffled (hushed) reality of what happens in the judicial system, in the courts, prisons, and the families involved, whether they are victims or defendants. I want to open the eyes of the people disseminating real information."

Sollecito's lawyer: only 516,000 Euros in damages for wrongful imprisonment (is not enough)

Lawyers for Raffaele Sollecito, the young man finally acquitted of murder, have announced today that they could take up new avenues for him to get compensation greater than 516 thousand Euro, in damages for wrongful imprisonment

The figure of 516 thousand Euro seems inappropriate to his lawyers in order to offset the enormous damage caused by the unjust incarceration. Thus, Raffaele Sollecito's lawyer, Luca Maori, announced that, although that figure is the maximum allowed, they were considering other ways of getting compensation appropriate to the case.

Sollecito is today in Chianciano where he presents his book "A step out of the night" at the Congress of the Radicals.

Amanda Knox's ex- the 'Draculapp' creator - wants to suck $570,000 out of Italy
By Liz Houle

The ex-con said that he would use the generous funds to build a computer application for commemorating the dead. Solonews reported " a loan of EUR 66 thousand from the Puglia region, will start a new business, a kind of social network Memorial for deceased loved ones."

Oh dear, this new 'app' by Sollecito, ex #amandaknox boyfriend, has been dubbed "Draculapp" by a witty Italian tweeter!
...
Amanda Knox's lawyers chimed in that they are not suing for wrongful imprisonment since Knox is still in court facing slander charges against the police. Knox's conviction for criminal slander against her former boss, Patrick Lumumba, was finalized by the Italian Supreme Court and she was sentenced to three years time served. This leaves her one year of imprisonment open to suing unless she is convicted of slandering the police in the coming months. If she is found guilty of slandering the police, she could be sentenced to more time in prison.

Whatever your thoughts on the crime in Via della Pergola, the appointment of tomorrow night is a moment to look into each other's eyes, to understand more deeply what these years have meant to Raffaele Sollecito. Without forgetting those who are no more.

Last night, in the Sala San Felice, there were important city officials to greet him, as well as Enzo Magistà, Managing Director of Tg Norba 24 and moderator of the presentation.

It was the mayor, Tommaso Depalma to give him a new welcome on the Adriatic coast, wishing him to return to live his life with serenity, becoming an example for the new generations of how to get out of the story so tough, poignant and destructive ... passing "from reality to absurdity."

Interview with Raffaele Sollecito:
Sollecito speaks: 'Let me tell you things you wouldn't believe'
An interview after the release of his new book: ' I want to redeem my image as a free man and a citizen'

[...] Today Raffaele Sollecito talks about his book "A step out of the night - All you’ve never thought about me", published by Longanesi. I met him at the Congress of the Italian Radicals in Chianciano where on the stage he had declared that he intended to engage on the topic of prisons and justice. [...]

Why did you decide to write this book?

For two reasons: the first is redeeming my image as a free man and a citizen. I never hurt anybody and the image that prevailed in the media was that of a spoiled and sometimes unscrupulous boy, a manipulator or manipulated. All have known me as the guy who kissed Amanda just off via della Pergola, while 118 [Ambulance phone number] found poor Meredith Kercher's body.

Raffaele Sollecito at the Marilyn Manson concert in Florence

Marilyn Manson burns Bible during concert (VIDEO)

While a good portion of Florence spent the night of November 9 eagerly waiting for the arrival of the Pope, another slice of the city has witnessed the show 'cursed' by Marilyn Manson. As reported by the online edition of ' La Nazione', the rocker has sent his fans into raving, burning a Bible, while performing one of his biggest hits, 'Antichrist Superstar'.
The live Obihall performance / concert was attended by about three thousand people and was the only Italian stop of the European tour of the Reverend. Present in the audience also Raffaele Sollecito, who on his YouTube channel has published a video clip of the concert.

Short circuit. On the one hand, an old man of rock music that has not been newsworthy in a while, on the other the symbolic victim of a trial by media that continues to wind up the newspapers: good for music listening. It is already remarkable that, on the day before the visit to Florence of the Pope Francis, Marilyn Manson had gone up on a stage and had a mega-concert held in the Tuscan capital. But the news was not the event itself, but rather the fact that Manson had decided to celebrate his presence on Italian soil by burning a Bible onstage. Marilyn Manson-style.

Raffaele Sollecito at the Marilyn Manson concert in Florence (cont'd)

November 10, 2015 (cont.)

Marilyn Manson burns a Bible in Florence before the Pope's visit

A gesture that the singer often repeated, but this time it might be deemed "inappropriate"

Among other things, the singer admitted in an interview with David Letterman, to be in possession of a human fetus that he received as a gift and that he jealously guards inside a jar.

No word yet if Marilyn was aware of the Pope's visit to the Tuscan capital, and probably we will never know for sure. Do you believe that, no matter what, it’s a gesture 'granted' to an artist so controversial, or do you think there is a limit to everything?

On November 9, none other than Marilyn Manson performed in Florence. A couple of days before, on the Facebook feed, there appeared a picture of a ticket to the concert in question, published by Raffaele Sollecito. Intrigued, we decided to write him a message. No sooner said than done. We asked Raffaele Sollecito to tell us his impressions about the event.

Amanda Knox, advertising her appearance at the Loyola Law School luncheon:
Amanda Knox: I am resolved to clear the names of the wrongfully convicted

This coming Dec.3, I will be speaking at Loyola University Chicago’s Sixth Annual Life After Innocence Luncheon. Like many other local and regional innocence groups, Loyola’s Life After Innocence program advocates for innocent people released from prison, helping them reenter society, clear their records and start their lives over. The luncheon will be my first public opportunity to direct the conversation away from my past, and towards our shared goal of ensuring that other innocents may be freed and, better yet, not accused in the first place. I very much look forward to turning that page.

Prosecutor Giuliano Mignini, who in Perugia is also known for having dealt with the case of doctor Francesco Narducci, found dead in Lake Trasimeno in 1985, did he ever apologize?

No, he never apologized, indeed! He formulated new allegations / charges because, according to him, I’m guilty of serious libel and defamation against the police and the Italian judiciary since I criticized the work of investigators in the book that I wrote in the United States, titled Honor Bound. His lawsuit was filed before the Supreme Court ruling. Now that I have been acquitted for not having committed the crime and the errors committed against me have been criticized [by the Supreme Court], I wonder how it will end. The Prosecutor Giuliano Mignini accused me of having written exactly the same things that then were validated by the Supreme Court. I am ready to accept his public apology, if he ever has the courage (guts) to admit his mistakes.

What was the most glaring error in the investigation?

"There were so many that you are spoiled for choice. For one thing: they considered my Nike shoes fully compatible with the imprint left at the crime scene, yet it was enough to simply count the circles on the sole to notice the striking and disarming difference in the design of two shoe soles. Another error: [The investigators] seized computers to analyze them and then told us that, except one, they were unusable because technicians had unintentionally burned their hard drives. Impossible, any IT specialist could easily prove that. To do that, you’d have to be absolutely incompetent or have a certain skill and knowledge."

CSM censors Mignini for Sollecito’s preventive detention
Prohibition to see a lawyer was issued orally instead of in writing


The disciplinary section of the CSM has reprimanded [imposed the penalty of censure on] Giuliano Mignini, the prosecutor in the trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher. The censure is linked to the detention of Raffaele Sollecito and in particular the prohibition for him to see a lawyer that Mignini issued only orally and not in writing, as required by the rules. The Prosecutor General [la procura Generale] of the Supreme Court had asked instead for Mignini’s acquittal (Mignini was defended by the former prosecutor of Clean Hands [Mani pulite] Piercamillo Davigo.)

The disciplinary tribunal, presided over by a lay Councillor, Antonio Leone, issued its ruling after the hearing took place in the Palazzo dei Marescialli this morning. Mignini, according to the accusations made by the Prosecutor General of the Supreme Court, had caused “unfair harm to a detainee by the postponement/prohibition”, issued “only orally, in serious and inexcusable breach of the law”, of the right to confer with counsel, in obvious violation of the norm contained in the Code of Criminal Procedure which prescribes a “reasoned decree” issued in writing and delivered immediately to all affected parties.

It's been over eight years since that sultry August 13, 2007 (when Chiara Poggi was murdered): in-between [there were] two acquittals, in Vigevano and in Milan, and a first ruling of the Supreme Court that had annulled it in 2013, the new appeals process concluded on December 17, 2014 with a sentence of 16 years, which would have been 24 without choosing an abbreviated trial.
...
The case comes before the Fifth Criminal Chamber [of the Supreme Court] that last March had definitively acquitted Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito for the crime of Perugia. Moreover, the president of the judges’ college (Maurizio Fumo) is different, as are three of the other four members [of the panel.]

The Supreme Court might grant the request of the prosecution, asking to recognize in the case of Stasi even the aggravating circumstance of cruelty. But since the Supreme Court cannot independently redo the process, it might send it back, once again, to be held before new judges. Because with the roller coaster of Italian justice, and even more so after the case of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, anything and everything can happen. maybe the story of the crime of Garlasco is not over yet. There is an option number three.

The defendant asked for an acquittal while the 'ricorso' (appeal) of PG of Milan, on the contrary, requests recognition of an aggravating circumstance of cruelty.

Sensational judgment of the Supreme Court: it confirmed the sentence of 16 years to Alberto Stasi for the murder of Chiara Poggi. The Supreme Court has in fact rejected the appeals filed by the Prosecutor General of Milan and by Stasi's defense against the judgment of the Court of Assizes of Milan on December 17 last year. The decision came after about two hours of deliberations. The deputy prosecutor general on Friday at his indictment had requested the annulment of the sentence because there was no motive and certain evidence against Stasi was not sufficient.

The girl died one morning in August 2007. It was she who opened the front door to her executioner whom, evidently, she knew. Suspicions fell immediately on her boyfriend. Other leads were neglected. Investigators concentrated only on him. And they arrested him hoping, vainly, that he would confess. The GIP then examined the case file and released him: zero evidence and zero clues.

The sentence on the murder of Perugia, the last one that had definitively acquitted Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito of the charge of murdering Meredith Kercher, had established certain principles. Scientific measurements must be carried out with rigor, investigations follow at least a decent minimum of logic; you must indicate the motive with certain likelihood. Maybe not indulging in morbid and moralistic reconstructions (such as a little orgy attempted with the English student), which were made by the prosecution, because references to unconventional sexuality always show defendants in a bad light.

Giuliano Mignini. It’s the name of PM in Perugia, the “owner” (head of the investigation) of the Meredith Kercher murder case, who on December 4 was sanctioned by the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) for violating the law. The disciplinary section of the highest body of the judiciary has thus inflicted on the judge [al giudice], who among others also followed the case of the Monster of Florence, the sanction of censure.

And a recently released book by Raffaele Sollecito, A step out the night (Longanesi, 2015). If you decide to read it, it would be good to eliminate misplaced expectations right from the start. This is a poorly-written book: ugly, rather elementary, often rhetorical. However, it is not the literary quality against which you weigh the value of such a work, which is quite a memorial to the years of hell that Sollecito lived through for the duration of the court case that he had been involved in.

Different ending instead for one of history's most celebrated trials by media [processi più mediatici], namely the murder of Meredith Kercher. On March 27, 2015, the Fifth Criminal Division of the Supreme Court, chaired by Judge Gennaro Marasca, cancels without postponement Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox’s sentences for murder, absolving them for not having committed the crime, citing the "lack of evidence" and the presence of numerous errors in the investigation, and putting an end to the court case.

Then there was the definitive acquittal of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, accused of the murder of Meredith Kercher, which dates back to November 2007, known as the crime of Perugia. Also in this case, [it took] a very long time to put a tombstone on a trial that has kept in suspense millions of people on two continents.

Raffaele Sollecito presents in Bisceglie his autobiography
Meeting at the Union Club on January 15

An event that Bisceglie has been waiting for since October when "A step out the night" first appeared on newsstands and in bookstores throughout Italy. Presented by all domestic media, discussed on the radio and in local press, the true crime book of Raffaele Sollecito will be also presented in Bisceglie.

The event, promoted by the Libreria Marcone (reference library for the purchase of copies) and by the Circolo Unione (Union Club) and the psychologist and psychotherapist Gianni Ferrucci, will provide the opportunity to the residents of Bisceglie to hear, probably for the first time in public, the young man now living in Bisceglie, finally acquitted of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, speak in his own voice about his sad ordeal.

Storie maledette ("Cursed Stories"), Rudy Guede speaks in the 1st episode on January 21
By Massimo Luciani

Exclusive of "Cursed Stories" which returns on the air in prime time on January 21: Rudy Guede, convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher, speaks for the first time and reveals to Franca Leosini what he has always kept untold. The episode is titled "Black man found, black man guilty."

Read full translation: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=129779#p129779

In a real shot at expertise, Franca Leosini in the first episode reveals for the first time what Rudy Guede has told the writer and presenter. The words of the Ivorian will weigh like boulders on the story of the crime because they will overturn ideas presented as truths but that have never been true and will even subvert the thesis that currently seems certain but instead has never been convincing. In short, a real reversal of what has been established so far: this sums up the contribution intended to discuss Guede’s interview with Leosini.

Amanda Knox was acquitted by a court in Florence on charges of slander against the police of Perugia. There was a request by the Florentine PM for two years and eight months in prison. The investigation against Knox had been initiated because the American student had said, during the first trial, that she had been pressured and ill-treated in police headquarters the night before her arrest. Behavior that led her to accuse Patrick Lumumba.

Meredith murder, Amanda acquitted of slandering the police of Perugia
The prosecutor of Florence had asked for two years and eight months. Knox told she had been mistreated at the police station the night before her arrest
By F.M. (Francesca Marruco)

According to the judge who today acquitted Amanda Marie Knox, assisted by lawyers Luciano Ghirga, Carlo Dalla Vedova and Tommaso Ducci, the crime does not exist [il fatto non sussiste].

Knox was investigated after, in the first degree murder trial, where she was charged with Sollecito, she had said that she had been pressured, ill-treated, including physically abused, at the police station in Perugia the night before her arrest by some agents of the Flying Squad and an interpreter.

Against her, assisted by the lawyer Francesco Maresca, the Kercher family lawyer, were seven policemen of the squad of Perugia. Their request for compensation was 15,000 Euros each.

The first case is that of Rudy Guede, the only convicted of the murder in Perugia. A controversial international case, where, on the one hand, there was the immense power of the media and on the other, that of the United States ...

Brava. You said what I can't say (laughs). I have a pro-American stance and so I have nothing against America, but it is a fact that we can’t prosecute their citizens. For example, and it is something that happened yesterday, for this installment we asked CNN if we could buy 40 seconds of footage of Amanda Knox, in whose defense at the time of the trial were formed committees upon committees, and the answer was no. Which is amazing, extremely serious, a real censorship.

"What happened to me could happen to any citizen. That is what I want to tell and to make clear. It's not fair to conduct trials by media tinged with gossip, and not be told about real legal proceedings, with all the trial papers, documenting the criminal charges and relevant evidence. Our traits / characteristics / features (with Amanda Knox, ed) made sure that media fictionalized it all, and fed it to the public that, only now, gradually, is starting to experience reality and understand errors. We are free and innocent as ultimately determined by the Supreme Court." It’s the first thing that Raffaele Sollecito says on his arrival in Acireale.

A new bomb. "You know that night ...": Knox and Sollecito, more trouble

Read more: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=129739#p129739

After the Supreme Court put an end to the crime of the murder of Meredith Kercher, Rudy Guede, the only convicted of the murder, speaks and tells his (new) truth, but, since a reversal is almost impossible, he cannot change the judicial situation (at most, at least that is what he is hoping, he might change the opinion that many have about him.) Interviewed by Storie maledette, when asked if he is the only one guilty of the murder of Mez, he replied "I’m the only one convicted and I am certain of what I say, to 101 percent, because I got to know both girls, but mostly I knew Amanda Knox." Finger pointing, in short, at Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, acquitted by the Supreme Court.

Meredith murder: Rudy Guede the only convicted, proclaims innocence

Read more: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=129780#p129780

Tired of being held up as a liar, a thief and a murderer, Rudy Guede has decided to speak in an interview with Franca Leosini. Guede is serving a sentence of 16 years for complicity in murder, which was handed down after an abbreviated trial, but the Ivorian professes his innocence. There were no fingerprints or traces of his DNA on the knife Meredith had been killed with. His only crime was to be a person of color, and that was enough to imprison him.

"The Center for Criminological studies of Viterbo (CSC) has received a request from Rudi Guede to conduct a thorough examination of each trial / case which involved him and of all its media implications." To declare this are Marcello Cevoli and Rita Giorgi, president and scientific director of the CSC.
...
"A judgment – continue Cevoli and Georgi – which has many aspects widely debatable. We have therefore constituted a research team within the CSC that will analyze the elements that characterized the trial of Rudy Guede, as well as all the relations with the media. The end goal – concluded Marcello Cevoli and Rita Georgi– is also to develop a publishing project that can describe and restore some truths..."

According to the information available to Oggi, Giulia Bongiorno and Luca Maori, the lawyers who defended Raffaele Sollecito until final acquittal, have submitted today a letter of formal notice to the Rai management - warning them that Guede will face a complaint for slander / defamation, considering that "Raffaele Sollecito, since 2007, has already suffered enormous damage from the unjust accusations of which he was finally acquitted by the Supreme Court in the spring of last year." Lawyers point out that not only Rudy never did, in court, mention the name of Raffaele to implicate him in the murder, but also that "all the judges who had judged [him] called [him] unreliable."

No one can doubt Raffaele Sollecito’s innocence as regards “the accusation of having participated in the murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia.”

This was written by his lawyers, Giulia Bongiorno and Luca Maori, in a letter to RAI. Initiative taken in view of the broadcast on RAI-3, tomorrow, in the program ''Cursed Stories'', of an interview with Rudy Guede, who was sentenced to 16 years in prison for the crime. According to the lawyers, a preview of the contents of the program, “suggests that Guede has cast a shadow over Sollecito’s position, provoking doubts about the verdict of acquittal”. The engineer's lawyers have announced that their client has given them his mandate to protect him “in any court of law, with respect to new injury to his image.”

He speaks for the first time in front of a camera and rewrites the story that is very different from what I had imagined.

Guede was able to read the questions first?

Convicted Killer Rudy Guede: ‘I’m 101% Certain Amanda Knox Was There’
By Barbie Latza Nadeau

In a pre-taped, multi-camera interview in the tailoring classroom of the Viterbo Prison in central Italy, Guede, 29, wearing a gray sweater and glasses, spoke about his life and the murder for which he is now serving 16 years. The Ivory Coast native was a far cry from the scruffy man the press described as a drug pusher and ex-con. In fact, he said he had never tried hard drugs, and his record shows that despite reports to the contrary, he had no previous convictions for any crimes.

Raffaele Sollecito 'will launch a legal action for damages' after the interview of Rudy Guede on Rai3. Said today lawyer Giulia Bongiorno, one of the defenders of the engineer from Puglia. "I consider it very serious and unprecedented – said Bongiorno – a failure to comply with a judgment that has now definitively ascertained the absolute innocence of Raffaele Sollecito. Arrived at the end of a long legal ordeal, made even harder by media amplification / intervention."

Critique of Guede's statements also came from Amanda Knox's lawyers. Lawyer Luciano Ghirga, defending the American from the first moment of her arrest in Perugia, said this was the "first case of media revision" which he happened to witness: "However - he explained - it is procedurally irrelevant; these are the usual lies that Rudy has always told, so famous that he has become the king of liars." "We will evaluate [his statements] - he added - If the contents are harmful, as we imagine, to the image of Amanda, we will act accordingly."

"I respect the decision of my lawyers, although for the sake of truth it should be noted that I informed them well in advance of my intention to speak for the first time as regards what happened," says Guede with a post on his Facebook profile managed by the Centre for Criminological Studies of Viterbo. "By the way - the statement reads - also the journalist Franca Leosini informed them months ago and I understoodd that they had also been invited. What is certain is that I would rather hear the news directly from them [the lawyers] rather than the press. I take note however, sincerely thanking them for all their hard work."

The airing of the interview has sparked a fresh debate on social networks, between colpevolisti and innocentisti. And a discussion (with over 150 messages posted) began also on the Facebook page of Sollecito. Where he said: "Leosini omitted key facts just to try to redeem the image of Guede over others. It is not justifiable, regrettable (I'm sorry)."

The conclusion would be that the findings of the proceedings, considered completely groundless by the courts that had ruled on the criminal charges leveled against two young lovers of the white race, however, were considered to be reliable and able to lead to a guilty verdict for the other defendant, the black one, the only one paying for this crime; albeit, according to final judgment, he had been convicted in complicity with others. It is quite evident and striking, the difference in treatment, which implies an unaffordable price to be paid for the credibility of the rule of law.

[...] But the shadows that Rudy casts over them, in a suggestive manner, with background music, and with proprieties of language, so convincing as to give birth to a Facebook page of improvised “innocentisti”, require a brief comparison. Because to disprove Rudy Guede is Rudy Guede himself. If today, in fact, he speaks on TV, at one time, while still a fugitive, he confided his version of the facts on Skype to his friend Giacomo Benedetti, not knowing that the police of Perugia were intercepting his call.

If instead of Rudy Guede was Berlusconi ...

Well, on forums and on the (Twitter) profile of the program “Cursed stories” were unleashed the usual herds of "do-gooders" to rant against the two "acquitted" - rich, white and defended by “right” lawyers (Bongiorno), and canonize the poor African scapegoat without adequate advocacy, as if they were arguments of procedural content higher than that of an episode of Mrs. Fletcher [i.e., Murder, She Wrote]. The problem is that, unlike the great Angela Lansbury, none of us can turn detective, but just simply pay taxes to keep the public investigative apparatus efficient.

Rudy Guede in “Cursed Stories” with the "good guy" strategy
By Alessandro Orfei

Bearing in mind all the judgments, five sets of proceedings and a conviction, of Rudy, for murder in complicity, you want to have an "aesthetic" look in the first episode of ”Cursed Stories”. Rudy appears before the cameras with the look of a model student (he is about to graduate). Very short hair, gray sweater and white shirt. Wearing a pair of glasses with rectangular lenses. A dress code that contributes to what seemed like a tactic to break that cliché of a "drifter" and "troubled" person that had been built around him and in which Rudy had been imprisoned because of his choice of silence.

Sollecito asking 500,000 Euros for unjust imprisonment

Raffaele Sollecito is asking the Italian State over half a million Euros for the "unjust imprisonment" suffered in the investigation into the murder of Meredith Kercher. The petition was filed today at the Court of Appeal of Florence by his lawyers, Giulia Bongiorno and Luca Maori. The lawyers decided to turn to the last trial court that dealt with the process. In particular, they demanded compensation of 516,000 Euros for the detention to which Sollecito was subjected from 6 November 2007 to 4 October 2011

"Shameful acting full of omissions and lies. Harmful and criminal behavior, intended only to tarnish my image and that of Amanda. In a broadcast on Rai one cannot distort reality. The reality, written in trial documents, in the history of the case, in the sentencing report for the murder of the poor Meredith, which places Guede at the center of the scene of the crime. "
Harsh words from Raffaele Sollecito, who, in the weekly magazine OGGI, on newsstands on Wednesday [Jan.27] (or on www.oggi.it), comments on the interview of Rudy Guede to Franca Leosini, broadcast in the program “Cursed Stories” on Rai3.

Received and published – We learned of Raffaele Sollecito’s indignation, who, in an article published by a well-known weekly (Oggi, ed), complains about the inappropriateness of the broadcast of the 'Cursed Stories' program, in addition to the way it was recorded and run without contradiction [uncontested].

On this point, it is hardly necessary to recall that Raffaele Sollecito had been the guest on a large number of programs such as Porta a Porta, La vita in diretta, Domenica In, Piazza Italia (Rai programs, public television), Quarto Grado, Pomeriggio 5, Matrix (Mediaset), Otto e Mezzo (La7). All this - before, during and after the trials / verdicts that concerned him.

Let's face it, why Raffaele Sollecito, indicted in the trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher and acquitted in March of 2015, chose Sanremo to launch his startup is a real mystery. The fact that the startup in question, sponsored by the Puglia region, has as its theme the funeral, well, leaves more perplexed than anything else, as if Sollecito, not happy to be out [of prison], feeling a little battered by his treatment by the media during the trial for the crime of Perugia, has decided to become a kind of troll, an active figure on the net that tries to attract attention in an almost violent way.

Raffaele, you still feel the best person to offer this kind of service?
I haven't read anything yet, I don't know how they're commenting on it. I am a computer engineer so yes, I'm the right person. The only reason I had this idea was my mother. And then the idea is mine; there is now a similar portal. Everything else can be an incentive to curiosity, come on. (laughs.)

Two opinion pieces about Sollecito's startup:

Selvaggia Lucarelli to Raffaele Sollecito: "you're disrespectful and unintelligent"
By Stefania Titone

Read more: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=130191#p130191

The application created by Sollecito is a portal for the commemoration of the dead. A stunt in bad taste? To comment on it is Selvaggia Lucarelli, who says: "See Raffaele Sollecito, this thing to create a portal for the dead is a little bit macabre which in addition to showing who you really are (disrespectful and unintelligent), casts a shadow on you even more disturbing: a healthy person who is found innocent by a court, while half of Italy is still convinced he's guilty, would seek the media oblivion.

It appears from the official internet site of the enterprise, it's all still being worked on, and the business will not be operational until next spring, so the question that Sollecito's presentation is just a way to re-attract the media attention to himself remains. Also, it seems inconceivable that the directors of Sanremo could allow a character so "media-sensitive" to present his company on a stage that should only deal with music, a space reserved for artists seeking to present their new works.

Raffaele Sollecito creates a social network for the dead
By Patrick Browne

“People can create a profile page for their deceased loved ones, where they can post photos, videos and share their memories. Each profile is also hooked up to an e-commerce portal where friends and family can order graveside services.” [...] Customers can even ask for tombstones and mausoleums to be cleaned, with prices starting from €45 for basic services.
...
“I began working on the database in October and it will be online by Spring,” he said. [,,,] For now, the database only covers graves in Italy but the business has global ambitions.

And in fact it did. On Radio 24, Sollecito said: 'I can sue the Rai. Interview with Leosini had a serious adverse effect on my image. I was definitively acquitted, while there was talk of alleged perpetrators and a conspiracy to murder with other people. These are just rumors. Rudy Guede has been convicted as a murderer of Meredith.’

Two men stand trial for stealing Amanda Knox’s knives and Meredith’s mattress
By Liz Houle

It is being reported in Italian news that two men stood in court for breaking into the cottage that Erasmus scholar Meredith Kercher was murdered in. An unidentified Italian native and a foreigner, two males, burglarized the cottage on Via della Pergola, two times, once in February 2009 and again in March 2009.

The two men walked through the home using candles to light their way while stealing certain objects. It is unknown what they were looking for or why they chose to break the police seal to unlawfully enter the residence. Their trespassing did not alter the evidence in the murder trial of suspects Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Guede, as the police had already finished gathering evidence months earlier.

Both men are said to be known to authorities. An investigation showed that the two intruders spilt wax all over as they searched through the rooms. For some reason the only items they took were Meredith Kercher’s mattress, some blankets, and Amanda Knox’s knives which were in a suitcase under her bed.

A knife, a cell phone, some music CDs and a personal computer symbolically close the legal odyssey of Raffaele Sollecito, the computer engineer definitively acquitted last year from the charge of being involved in the murder of Meredith Kercher.

Sollecito on his Facebook page has published a photo of the knife and his old cell phone commenting on the image with a reflection. 'Two objects that marked the beginning and today mark the end of a life tragedy that lasted eight years. Misunderstandings, incompetence and misinterpretations that have been around the world.'

'The seminar - explains Daniele Camilli - will be an opportunity to discuss communication strategies relating to Rudy Guede and a parallel investigation we are pursuing with CSC.'

'The journalistic investigation - says Rita Giorgi - as a benchmark of journalism. The investigation does not like media hype, but is a fundamental tool to enable and allow insights and analysis in the service of citizens and regions.'

“A step out of the night": Raffaele Sollecito guest of "Link" (tonight at 21 on TRG)

In recent days, Sollecito has returned to Perugia. And tonight, Thursday, March 10, will air a special episode of "Link", a talk show by the TRG director, Giacomo Marinelli Andreoli to talk about autobiographical publication of Raffaele Sollecito, studio guest. The broadcast will air at 21 on TRG and live streaming will be available on www.trgmedia.it. Joining Sollecito will be a young criminologist from Perugia, Francesco Fanelli.

Why interview Sollecito? Here is what I think...
By Giacomo Marinelli Andreoli

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Read full translation: http://www.perugiamurderfile.net/viewto ... 92#p130392

For once, though, I begin my reflections with an email of protest that I received, along with other comments which, even before the broadcast of “Links” went on the air with a guest in studio Raffaele Sollecito, expressed their indignation.

I fully respect these views. But, since I have a blog, I would like to speak my mind on this choice that certainly was not superficial or without a priori considerations, because none of us live on Mars. And I knew very well that an interview of 90 minutes with Raffaele Sollecito - for the first time in a television studio of the region where that crime took place on November 1, 2007 - would not go unnoticed.

For all those who might want to write via e-mail to Rudy, now they can do it. E-mail address is viterbo@maidiremail.it This is a service activated for prisoners from the correctional facility of Viterbo. A remarkable initiative, and of great significance, a “brainchild” of prison administration and enlightened staff. Having said that, to write to Rudy keep in mind a few things: 1) in the subject line type HERMANN RUDY GUEDE 26 DICEMBRE 1986; 2) anything you write and any attachment you send will be read, before Rudy, by prison staff. The same goes for correspondence by letter; 3) there is a service charge or fee. Not for the one who writes, but for those who receive, that is to say for the prisoner. There are various types of "subscription". Rudy has a subscription – including sent and received mail - which allows him to have no more than thirty pages per month (a page of Word=a page of mail, a page of attachment=a page of mail, a picture in attachment=a page of mail).

'The Yellow of the Week' (Il giallo della settimana): Raffaele Sollecito commentator
By Claudio Torre

Raffaele Sollecito on TV. TgCom24 kicks off tomorrow a new program devoted to crime news and with a particular commentator

A new program devoted to crime news "The Yellow of the week" ("The crime of the week"), a spin-off of Quarto Grado ("Fourth degree"). And analyzing news stories will be Raffaele Sollecito, commissioned by the host Remo Croci explaining the reasons for his choice. 'I grew up with "Fourth Degree" and I am really excited about being chosen for this format. We will choose the most relevant topic, explore it further and extrapolate some peculiarities that emerge during broadcast, and in addition there will be more detailed video clips and new components', said the journalist. At his side - and this is the real surprise, except if it is an "April Fool"s joke - there will be Raffaele Sollecito in the role of a commentator and a regular guest.

'I chose him - explains Croci - because I think he represents, in recent years, the Italian justice, an important witness. After his preventive detention and an eight-year ordeal, who better than he can testify as to moods and provide points of view of certain situations he has experienced the hard way? '

Sollecito commentator on TgCom24

"Sollecito was finally acquitted by the Supreme Court, was in prison, he went through all stages of the process: knows the justice machine better than all of us - confirms director Paolo Liguori during the press launch of the new look of TgCom24 - and he [Sollecito] also recounts his ordeal. Sometimes when I watch TV, I wonder: what is a criminologist? It is a beautiful girl, I see it too, but where do you get a criminologist diploma? I feel very much like Sollecito and if he is a red herring, then so am I. " - adds Liguori.

Raffaele Sollecito, the Italian ex-boyfriend of Amanda Knox, who was last year acquitted of the murder of Meredith Kercher after a long legal saga, has become a pundit for a TV crime show, Italian media is reporting. The 32-year-old has been hired by Il Giallo della Settimana, (This Week’s Mystery), a weekly program aired by TgCom24, an all-news channel and part of the media empire of the family of former premier Silvio Berlusconi.

“Sollecito was decisively acquitted ... he was in prison, he went through all the rounds of appeal: he knows the wheels of justice better than all of us and he will also tell us his travails,” TgCom director Paolo Liguori was quoted as saying by Corriere della Sera newspaper.

Two opinion pieces on Sollecito's second career choice as TV crime expert with TgCom24:

Raffaele Sollecito becomes crime commentator on TV with TgCom24. Next stop – knife sharpener?
By Selvaggia Lucarelli

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Read full translation: TJMK

A year ago, the Court of Cassation definitively acquitted Raffaele Sollecito (and Amanda Knox). Evidentiary framework that would confirm their guilt beyond reasonable doubt was lacking. Now Raffaele Sollecito is a free man and has an inviolable right to do what he wants. He could be a singer, an insurance agent, a tailor, a blacksmith, a web designer, or a pizza maker. And yet, all of his amazing attempts to kick off a second life are clues and evidence (which is rather damning) not to be guilty of murder "beyond reasonable doubt", but to be guilty of bad taste, inelegance, missed opportunities and unintelligence beyond reasonable doubt. Beyond any doubt or hesitation at all. Beyond any uncertainty.

On the idea to enlist in the new TgCom24 programme The Mystery of the Week Raffaele Sollecito as a commentator and expert has already commented widely and promptly Selvaggia Lucarelli, identifying all of the absurdity of the case. But the choice, beyond the issues of opportunity and good taste, also helps address the problem from a broader perspective.

Raffaele Sollecito defends himself: "My testimony can be of help to many"

There is no contract to formalize this new role of Raffaele Sollecito, but the young man is ready to clarify in an interview with Vanity Fair the importance of his figure in this project: "My testimony can be helpful to many. I fight because nobody can relive what happened to me. I can bring to legal debates an original point of view – specifically – that of the accused. That of a man who, unfortunately, has known in detail the courts, the media and prisons."

Former boyfriend of Amanda Knox now a TV crime expert
By Ed Adamczyk

"Sollecito was imprisoned, he went through every level of the trial process, so he knows the justice system better than anyone," Paolo Liguori, TgCom24 network director, told the newspaper Corriere della Sera, the British newspaper The Telegraph reported Thursday. "He will be able to recount his ordeal."
Liguori added that Sollecito was more credible than the "pretty girls" typically hired by Italian reality programs.
"I often ask myself, what experience do they have? How can they graduate at 26 and by the age of 30 be experts in criminology?" he said.

The Knox callunia sentencing report has been released:

Amanda Knox gave Lumumba's name to escape pressure

Translation: Catnip
Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.net/viewto ... 11#p130511

Amanda named Patrick Lumumba because “in ‘offering up’ that name to those who were interrogating her so forcibly she was hoping to put an end to that pressure”.

The Seattle student’s words were “the confused narration of a dream, albeit rather macabre” and “not the description of something that had really occurred”.

Amanda’s declarations “were clearly characterized by a psychological condition which became” for her “a truly unsupportable weight”. And therefore “understandable” that “succumbing to the pressure and tiredness she had hoped to put an end to that situation, giving those who were interrogating her what they at base wanted to hear – a name, a killer”.


NUOVO CORRIERE NAZIONALE

April 9, 2016 (cont.)

Amanda named Lumumba to end the interrogation pressure

She named Patrick Lumumba to end the pressure she was undergoing during the interrogation.

For the Court, the account contained in her statement [to police] and in her note written immediately after appears to be «the confused narration of a dream, albeit rather macabre, rather than the description of something that had really occurred». For the Court, this «confirms the state in which Amanda found herself» at that moment and rules out that her aim «could have been to keep quiet about the name of the actual author of the deed».
...
The Florence court, however, spoke in this context of investigations marked by "numerous procedural irregularities" and the obsessive duration of interrogations.

Raffaele Sollecito discusses famous murder cases on TV: "People uninformed about my trial"
By Tommaso Napoli

Raffaele Sollecito, speaking to Radio Cusano Campus, the radio station of the Niccolò Cusano University, ..., has agreed to comment on the outcry that followed his collaboration with Mediaset, which will see him taking part in the program to review famous crime cases. "All this attention has surprised me," said Sollecito. "I did not expect that there was so much hatred towards me and it's not clear from where it derives, also because it comes from people who are uninformed about my trial and my history. They have compared me to Michele Misseri or Franzoni, but these people have been convicted, I do not know how anyone could compare my case with these people."

A change-org petition to keep Sollecito off TV

CHANGE.ORG

April 12, 2016 (cont.)

17,000 Italians say 'No' to Amanda Knox ex on TV program
By Liz Houle

After the international publicity announcing Amanda Knox's ex-lover, Raffaele Sollecito being hired as a crime expert on Italian TV, thousands of people signed a petition to stop him. A Change.org petition was created in Italian to be sent to the director of Tgcom24, Paolo Liguori, asking him to remove Sollecito from their program, 'The Yellow of the week.'

A third strike against the knife collector is that he does not hold a degree in criminology. The author of the petition points out the obvious fact that a former prisoner cannot justify describing himself as an expert in the justice system. If that were the case, then all criminals would be on TV and calling themselves "criminologists."

Amanda Knox feature among new Danish docs
By Wendy Mitchell

Netflix to launch US-Danish documentary Knox in autumn

Screen spoke to three of Denmark’s most prominent documentary production companies last week in Copenhagen, to talk about their slates, which include a new Netflix title with exclusive access to Amanda Knox…

Mette Heide, who founded plus pictures in 2008, is working with American directors Brian McGinn and Rod Blackhurst on Knox, which will be presented by Netflix.

The feature doc has been in the works since 2011 and promises exclusive access to Amanda Knox, her Italian ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito; prosecutor Giuliano Mignini; and Daily Mail reporter Nick Pisa. Knox was interviewed by the filmmakers in 2014, three years after being released from prison.

“It explores the human impact of the trial,” Heide told Screen. “It is ‘True Crime 2.0,’ it explores the human side of true crime, and how a case can explode and develop because people want to know more. It will explore the personal impact of all the people involved, and it will reflect why the case became the trial of the century.”

Raffaele Sollecito speaks on the petition!
By Simona Miceli

Dear supporters, this evening I decided to watch a few minutes of the show "This Week’s Mystery" - to figure out what had been our impact. Well, Raffaele Sollecito, at the host's request, commented on our action stating that no petition will ever diminish his civil rights and that he is free to do what he believes in / likes. Indeed, to make more evident his total detachment from our expectations and demands for respect, he invites everyone to sign a petition with even more signatories so that he can be even more motivated to participate in a television program. Dear Raffaele, I have to tell you that I had no doubt of your disinterest (or your pretense at disinterest) in the petition; on the other hand, I know that neither I nor the other signatories have the knowledge necessary in this country to reach our goal, and I do not doubt that you will continue to deliver your expertise in the field of justice for having served jail time. In fact, for this reason, I have not wanted to address the petition to you, but to those who have certain skills and should listen and consider it seriously but who turn a deaf ear. Hello everyone and thank you for your signature and your comments!

What is your opinion of the Italian judiciary and the Italian justice? What do you think of the investigation and the trial against you?

Justice in Italy is creating major problems. For example, I was literally targeted by investigators immediately. They conducted hasty and erroneous investigation. Then also, in the light of the blatant investigative amnesia, they continued all the way to try to prove their theory and spread it worldwide.

Sollecito, lawyer Maori suspended for 4 months for aiding and abetting

Banned for four months from the profession lawyer Luca Maori and a colleague, who had joined in the proceedings, because accused of aiding his client: it is an accusation brought against him by prosecutors in Perugia, and considered by the investigating judge who issued the measure. The charge that the lawyer - known for defending, among others, Raffaele Sollecito in the trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher (that ended with final acquittal of the young man and Amanda Knox) - dismissed during a long interrogation of guarantee [interrogatorio di garanzia] before the same judge. Claiming the correctness of their work. The proceedings against the lawyer Maori concern in particular a DNA test done on the six-year old son of his client arrested for killing his wife with a shotgun blast after a quarrel at home.

This he tried before the review (which then confirmed an incarceration for the man, criticizing the test) that it was a crime of impulse related to a victim's verbal expression. The Prosecutor's Office in Perugia has challenged the manner in which he examined the genetic code of the child and the timing of the test. For the lawyer Maori and his colleague, the prosecutors had requested house arrests for aiding and abetting and false ideology ... but the judge for preliminary investigations ruled out the latter's offense by placing the disqualification, for four months, instead of custody. Maori responded this afternoon for about two hours to the questions of the investigating judge and the prosecutor. At the end of the interrogation, his lawyer, Francesco Falcinelli, called for the lifting of the disqualification, and the judge reserved his decision. "He [Maori] stated - he added - that his was a legitimate articulation of joint defensive activities within the scope of the mandate received." For the lawyer Falcinelli the crime of aiding "does not exist."

Bergamo court has acquitted Sulas and Brindani:

The prosecutor had asked for 5 years for Giangavino Sulas of "OGGI" (''TODAY''), and 2 for Director Umberto Brindani, because the reporter [Sulas] had dared to define as ''an invention'' the investigation ("bis") on the MONSTER of FLORENCE case in which all 21 defendants were finally acquitted - The presiding judge closed the proceedings: "the fact doesn’t exist" [il fatto non sussiste].

Sulas had been sued by Giuliano Mignini, the former Prosecutor of Perugia and Deputy Prosecutor General today (the same as in the Meredith trial), for an article in "OGGI" of May 5, 2010. In that piece, entitled "Monster [of Florence], investigation cancelled", Sulas was referring to preliminary hearing of 21 defendants [later acquitted] ...

We are not "ignorant," we ask for respect and discretion!
By Simona Miceli

Dear supporters, I'm sending you the latest interview with Raffaele Sollecito in 'Il Giornale', where our friend explained for the umpteenth time what motivates him to have his say on television. He is asked if he believes that people have changed their minds / opinions about him and he says that there is a lot of ignorance out there. He says only the evidence counts, justice does not work ... and you will understand that expert! But no one knows what is the evidence that exonerates him I might add. We continue to spread our message, which is simply this: it doesn't matter whether Sollecito is guilty or innocent, the judgment was delivered; It just isn't appropriate for a phenomenon created by the media - much criticized - there is still that it should serve as an example for whoever looks at it. Liguori, do you understand?? Hi all and spread it (our message) again, again, and again!

By Anna Rotundo

Raffaele Sollecito was finally declared innocent by Italian law and has the right to be considered innocent, and the others have the duty to consider him as such. Yet there is someone who has questioned this.

In fact, a petition was launched which aims to prevent him from participating as a commentator in the TV show "This Week’s Mystery"; she continues, in fact, to consider him guilty of murder from which he has already been acquitted.

Meredith, Strasbourg accepts appeal KNOX vs. ITALY

Knox claims to have suffered an unfair trial and have been mistreated during questioning, with no lawyer present

The European Court of Human Rights has accepted for preliminary review an appeal against Italy presented by Amanda Knox, acquitted in Cassation from the charge of having participated in the murder of Meredith Kercher. The young woman claims to have suffered an unfair trial and to have been ill-treated during interrogation, at which, among other things, her lawyer was not present. The Strasbourg Court considered valid the dossier submitted on November 24, 2013 by the lawyers of Knox, Luciano Ghirga and Carlo Dalla Vedova, and announced the appeal to the Italian government so that it can defend itself.

In the file she lists the reasons why the Italian State did not ensure a fair trial in the proceedings that led to her sentence of three years in prison for slander against Patrick Lumumba, the young man jailed in the first phase of the investigation on the murder of Meredith Kercher.

Knox states that her right to a fair trial had been violated because she was not informed quickly in a language which she understood of the nature and cause of the accusation against her. Also claims that she was not assisted by a lawyer during interrogations of November 6, 2007. Finally claims to not have been assisted by a professional and independent interpreter during the interrogation and that the police officer who assisted during interrogations of November 6, 2007 did the Ombudsman's duties thus "suggesting hypotheses about how the facts were carried out."

Amanda Knox cites violation of Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights stating that "slaps" which she received to the head constituted inhuman and degrading treatment. Now the Italian government will have to provide the Court with the evidence to clear itself from accusations of Knox. But the Court also asks that the girl proves that she has already made use of Italian courts for violations that she claims to have suffered.

Amanda Knox; here is why she is suing Italy

...Now the Italian Government will have until 17 September to provide its assessments to the Court which will then make its decision. Today the Deputy Prosecutor General of Perugia, Giuliano Mignini, the magistrate who led the investigation of the murder of Meredith Kercher, declined to comment on developments in Strasbourg. For the lawyer Ghirga, Knox’s interrogation is the cornerstone of the whole affair. "You can't talk about history satisfaction in a story like this where there is so much suffering but the demands of the defense of Amanda Knox are finding satisfaction' - said another [Knox] lawyer, Dalla Vedova.

"It is time for people to wake up on this matter," was the reaction of Raffaele Sollecito. "There have been abuses - he added - that have never had media coverage. Luckily there are judges who give due importance to what for us 'was a nightmare."

Raffaele Sollecito: "Me and Amanda Knox demonized. Abuses never reported by the media"
By Alessandro Guerra

After the decision of the European Court of Human Rights to accept a preliminary appeal against Italy by Amanda Knox, comes the reaction of Raffaele Sollecito, another star of the murder of Meredith Kercher trial story, a story that ended with acquittal of both Knox and Sollecito.

"It is time that people begin to open their eyes to this affair," said Sollecito to ANSA. "Amanda was interrogated for 15 hours without a lawyer and an official interpreter. There were abuses never reported by the media, and luckily there are judges who give due importance to what happened."

Sollecito added: 'The media has demonized us. Giving a description of the two people who have never really existed and are completely unrelated to the death of that poor girl. I never tire of denouncing what happened'.

Knox asks for compensation for detention
For one year, "asks for the maximum" announces her lawyer

Amanda Knox will ask the Italian State to be compensated for the wrongful imprisonment suffered in the trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher, which ended with her and Raffaele Sollecito’s acquittal. Said to ANSA one of her defenders, the lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova.
"The request [for compensation] - explained the lawyer - is almost ready and will be filed shortly. We will ask the maximum compensation (over 500 thousand euro) for the unjust detention and the consequential damage suffered." For Knox the unjust detention concerns only one of almost four years in prison. For the other three, the conviction for slander against Patrick Lumumba has indeed become definitive. Judgment for which the American has turned to the European Court of Human Rights.

Looking back, a mistake you wouldn’t want to repeat?

"I was a boy [back then], hard to deny. When months ago I recovered my confiscated computer, I cried. I found my life again at the time. There was nothing wrong. But it was buried, raped, broken. Now I start with enthusiasm and desire to move forward, but the shadow of everything always accompanies me."

[Guede] will make further permission requests

Translation: Google

Guede will leave prison on Wednesday to travel to a cooperative engaged in the recovery of prisoners where he will stay until the time to go back to jail. The measure was adopted with the favorable opinion of the director of the "Mammagialla" prison of Viterbo, Teresa Mascolo. "We waited four hours and we have been granted 36 - explains the spokesman Daniele Camilli (Rudy Guede can not talk to the press without a special permit) - It is a good signal. Henceforth Guede will undoubtedly make other permission requests.

"Guede? He never repented"

The permit award to Rudy Guede? I don't know his prison path, but I hope the judge has made this decision as part of a precise plan of rehabilitation that makes him to redeem himself. What I regret most is that Guede has never regretted what he did.' Said to Adnkronos Raffaele Sollecito on the first permission granted to 29 year-old definitely convicted to 16 years in prison for the murder of Meredith Kercher.

Raffaele Sollecito: “I’m upset by the fact that Guede has never shown any remorse. I hope whoever granted him permission did so only as part of a social re-integration programme.”

Italian newspapers (Corriere Della Sera, La Nazione-Umbria) report that Rudy Guede's attorneys Thomas Pietrocarlo and Monica Grossi, will be filing an appeal against his definitive sentence in the court of Assizes of Appeal in Florence. This appeal will be based on Art. 630.1 of the Italian penal code, which allows a review when the basis of the sentence is in conflict with another finalized judgment. This focuses on "the conflict of judgment" among the ruling that acquitted Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox, which accepts he did not act alone, and the one with which he was sentenced.

"Now it seems changed - says Raffaele Sollecito - I saw that they rearranged [rebuilt, fixed] the road on Via della Pergola", the one where stands the house of the Meredith Kercher murder of which the Apulian engineer was finally acquitted. Sollecito has made several stops in Perugia and has also been spotted in the area of Borgo XX Giugno along with a girl. New flame? On the subject he is buttoned up. Also because "the judicial ordeal" he lived through taught him to protect his privacy. […] Saturday, July 2 Raffaele met with his lawyer Luca Maori. "He is one of my reference points."

Meredith case, Rudy Guede becomes Doctor: Saturday his graduation

After the first permission [to leave prison] granted, graduating in methodology and sources of historical research: on Saturday, Rudy Guede, the Ivorian who in the Viterbo prison is serving 16 years for the murder of Meredith Kercher, will become a "doctor". An achievement which shows an average of 29/30 in the exams, aiming for the 110 and ‘honors’ [lode – praise]. Guede will discuss the thesis on "History and Media. The means and places of historical disclosure" in the theater of the Mammagialla prison, in the presence of the Committee of the University of Roma Tre, those people and a tutor, who assisted him in the studies, and some of the closest acquaintances (specially coming from Perugia).

A job which in recent months he has prepared from a distance, by sending teachers his elaborate hand- and computer-written notes. He will thus complete a course of study that before he was arrested for the crime of Via della Pergola was not able to finish. […] his university studies in humanities began in January 2012 with a 27 in Medieval History.

A path marked by five 30 and praise, as in the International Organization and Protection of Human Rights and the History of International Relations. However, he also got, among other things, the suitability for the French language and another 30, as in the History and Institutions of Islam and History of European Integration. Now the appointment for graduation.

Rudy Guede has graduated with 110 and honors in the History of the Territory and International Cooperation at the University of Roma Tre.

The discussion took place in the prison of Viterbo where he is serving 16 years for the murder of Meredith Kercher. Guede has announced that he now intends to sign up, at the same Roman university, for the Master's degree in History and Environment. [...] Guede, who started from an average of 29/30 obtained in examinations, presented a thesis on "History and the Media. The means and places of historical disclosure".

Meredith Kercher murder, an application for a review of his case filed by Rudy Guede

Synopsis: Ergon
Original post: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=130867#p130867

Rudy Guede's lawyers have filed for a review of his sentence at the Florence Court of Appeals. He argues that since he was condemned of the crime 'in conjunction with others' the case should be revisited. The article also notes the Florence Court had also condemned Knox and Sollecito though the Supreme Court vacated the verdict.

...He [Rudy Guede] was convicted in complicity with two people who have, however, been acquitted. We are talking about Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. The Court of Assizes of Appeal of Florence had already convicted Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, a conviction that was later overturned by the Supreme Court without referral to a new trial [senza rinvio].

As a rule, you can ask for a revision/review of a process in the presence of new evidence or in the event of incompatibility of two convictions. For [Rudy's] lawyers it is the second prerequisite that exists. It is now up to the Court of Appeal of Florence, which has jurisdiction on judgments from Perugia, to evaluate the request.

Raffaele Sollecito: Amanda Knox and I were not at the crime scene

Translation: Guermantes, Catnip

'Me and Amanda Knox are innocent and were not at the crime scene. We have a totally different position from that of Rudy Guede. What he says doesn't interest me'. Raffaele Sollecito commented on the news of an application for a review/revision of Rudy Guede's sentence. He does so by responding to ANSA.

‘I know the court documents and the whole proceedings,’ he said. 'What Guede is doing doesn’t make sense. His traces are at the scene of the crime. He has told lies and the alibi that he claimed to have ended up putting him in a bad light. After having found Meredith dying he went to the disco and then fled to Germany. These are the facts.’

The Ivorian held in Viterbo defends himself in the weekly [magazine] "Giallo" but Raffaele Sollecito accuses him

Rudy Guede: "I'm innocent!"

Rudy Guede asks for a revision of his sentence. Raffaele Sollecito is pointing the finger at him. In the murder of Meredith Kercher everyone is telling the "truth". The "Giallo" magazine, entirely focused on cases of crime, publishes an extensive interview with the Ivorian held in Mammagialla prison of Viterbo.

"I'm innocent! – says Guede through his spokesman Daniele Camilli - I ask for the revision of the process because I have been wrongfully convicted. I didn't do anything, so I hope I can soon go back to being a free man. I request that the process be reviewed particularly in light of acquittals of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito."

...his attorneys Monica Grossi and Tommaso Pietrocarlo invoke the "conflict of judgments". Namely: acquittal of Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox contrasts with Guede's sentence, since the appellate ruling on the Ivorian is based on the murder in complicity and, therefore, the presence of the former couple at the crime scene.

Sollecito is called out and replies harshly to Guede on the pages of the "Giallo" magazine: 'It would be best if Rudy never mentioned my name, because I've never seen him in my life, I've never met him. If he does [mention my name], I'll sue him for defamation - says the 32 year-old from Puglia, convicted twice and then acquitted for the murder of Meredith - I do not think it interests Amanda that Rudy has requested a review of his sentence.'

To Sollecito "Guede is the sole murderer of Meredith Kercher. The evidence against him is irrefutable and conclusive. I honestly don't think the process will be reopened, but were this possibility, very remote, to occur, I'd be happy, because it would establish more clearly Guede's position [as a murderer]."

Lawyer Daniele Bocciolini comments on the case re: the request for a review of the process by lawyers of the Ivorian

Soon, the Court of Appeal of Florence will be asked to comment on the review request advanced by Rudy Guede’s lawyers. Lawyer Daniele Bocciolini spoke about it on the pages of the weekly Giallo, commenting on the case that has again become the focus of news. "In my opinion, the acquittal of Amanda (Knox) and Raffaele (Sollecito) does not pay attention to the position of 'incompatibility' nor implies the 'incompatibility' with the conviction of Guede," said the lawyer, "acquittal for not having committed the crime of the other two defendants does not therefore rule out the guilt of Guede.” The lawyer, in analyzing the request for review of Guede’s trial, therefore reaffirmed that the only argument that the Court of Florence might consider would be represented by 'errors' in the investigation, referred to in the judgment of the Supreme Court that acquitted Amanda and Raffaele.

Why the Amanda Knox Netflix Documentary Is More Illuminating than a Decade’s Worth of Trial Coverage
by Judy Bachrach

In January 2014, after much wooing, a pair of thirtysomething filmmakers, Rod Blackhurst and Brian McGinn, got Knox, now 29, to speak on film bluntly and with icy precision about the pain, lies, and excruciatingly inventive worldwide headlines surrounding her travails. A few months later, they received the cooperation of Sollecito, who had endured six months of solitary confinement after his conviction. Most astonishing of all: last July, Blackhurst and McGinn also managed to persuade Giuliano Mignini, the Italian prosecutor who brought the tabloid-ready case to trial, to appear in their documentary Amanda Knox, which will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival before being released by Netflix on September 30.


VANITY FAIR

See also: September 12, 2016

Giuliano Mignini's rebuttal to Judy Bachrach's claims in her article in Vanity Fair:

Giuliano Mignini wrote:
The discussion in the article of Bachrach about those allegedly quoted statements about “morality” attributed to me, they are FALSE, I have simply never said them. And one cannot even say that they were a little changed, because I’ve never said anything even remotely like them. Those are statements of a kind that I would NEVER make.
[...]
Thus, all statements within quotation marks as reported in the article by Bachrach are false, I’d say absolutely false: they are the product of a making-up or a spin...
[...]
One stunning aspect of this, is that the narrative they put forward, such as in the article we talk about, seems to be based on a focus on me, as if I were to become a kind of key character functional to their fictional story. I found this particularly strange since in reality the Kercher case investigation was actually based on the work of a number of judiciaries, all of them making decisions with a power that was equal, or greater than mine. So is how the Italian system works on these type of serious crimes.

In the last week, the name of Rudy Guede, the Ivorian accused of murdering the young British student Meredith Kercher in the house in Perugia in November nine years ago, was back in the [crime] news. The reason is due to the desire of the young man (and his defense) to request a review of the process. In regards to it, on the pages of the weekly magazine Giallo, a few weeks ago, he had issued statements through his spokesman. The 29 year-old Ivorian, definitely convicted to 16 years as the only culprit of Meredith's murder, continues to proclaim his innocence and firmly believes he was wrongly convicted. For this reason, he hopes that the Court of Florence can at least accept the petition for review in order to discuss his case. […]

Freeing 'Foxy Knoxy': Why People Are So Obsessed with Amanda Knox
By Kate Leaver

Another reason for the continued cultural fascination with Amanda Knox could be that the case feels unresolved. Despite her definitive exoneration by the highest court in Italy, people still have questions about Knox. The acquittal may prove disappointing to anyone who watched this case—unlike movies or television, reality doesn't necessarily have a satisfying narrative ending.

[…] There's simply no way that this upcoming Netflix documentary can resolve all, if any, of these lingering points of interest.

'Either I'm a psychopath in sheep's clothing, or I am you': Amanda Knox breaks down in first trailers for Netflix documentary (VIDEOS)

Twice convicted of murder and twice acquitted by Italian courts, the past decade has seen global speculation over whether Amanda Knox was guilty or not.

Now a brand new Netflix documentary sees Knox break down in tears as she discusses being accused of killing her British roommate Meredith Kercher - and her eventual release from jail after years of battling the courts.

'That's everyone's nightmare,' says Knox in the first of two trailers, titled Suspect Her and Believe Her.

September 09, 2016: The Netflix documentary "Amanda Knox" opens at the Toronto International Film Festival today [...]. While claiming to be a balanced perspective its producer Stephen Robert Morse had made inflammatory reports about the prosecutor Giuliano Mignini (who was interviewed by the film makers) of "having been convicted of crimes" (he was acquitted) and being "a power-hungry prosecutor running the show". Requests to producer Mette Heide on August 13, 2016 for comment about his bias were not replied to by this time.

Goodbye to Mario Spezi, journalist & writer of the Monster of Florence
By Alessandra Bravi

Translation: Google + Guermantes

He was known in journalistic and judicial circles as the «Mostrologo». And he was pleased [with that nickname]. Mario Spezi, Florentine journalist and writer, 71, white hair, downcast eyes, but gentle and kind smile, died in Florence last night, at his home in Grassina. He was sick for a long time. Spezi made his debut in journalism with Paese Sera newspaper and in 1975 joined La Nazione and moved to Florence, where he worked as a legal chronicler / crime reporter, and he found himself following the inquiry into the Monster of Florence, "by chance", he always told us: 'I had contacts with judiciary but on the day of a double murder, September 1981, I replaced a colleague in “crime circuit” and learned of the crime in the hills of Scandicci. I went there and I wrote about it.' Spezi was to link the murder to another, which occurred years before. Shortly after, the police confirmed: the bullet casings were the same, the gun they came from was a .22 Beretta. Spezi always was the first, on the pages of La Nazione, to report on the Monster, the serial killer. His signature also remains linked to articles about the murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia. In recent years he collaborated with Il Corriere Fiorentino. [...]

The arrest

On the Monster of Florence, Spezi wrote a book: “Rolling hills of blood”, in collaboration with the writer Douglas Preston, and he has always supported the hypothesis of the lone killer / gunman. In 2006 he was arrested under a mandate of the Perugia Public Prosecutor on charges of misdirection, slander, complicity in murder of Francesco Narducci and disruption of public service, for private investigation into the crimes of the Monster: he remained in prison for 23 days and then the Supreme Court exonerated him completely, defining his arrest as unfounded. To that experience, he devoted a book, "Sent to jail. A journalist in handcuffs, black April of press freedom." Spezi also wrote another book about the murder of Meredith Kercher: Der Engel mit den Eisaugen (2013), also co-written with Preston, published only in Germany: their thesis saw in Rudy Guede the only culprit, absolving Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, as eventually happened.

What we want to promote, to convince you to participate in, is in fact the seminar organized by StopSecret Magazine "Investigations for the defense in a criminal trial" - Case history: the case of the murder of Perugia and Raffaele Sollecito, " which will be held on October 18 in Milan. [...]

During the seminar we will examine the rules that allow a defense lawyer to be able to carry out investigations, as well as limitations and opportunities that these represent. We'll find out about the support that can be given to the investigation by a private investigator, a forensic biologist, new investigative technologies, dactyloscopy and computer forensic activities.

And then, while it’s not the main reason, there is Raffaele Sollecito. Whose court case, thanks to excessive media coverage it received, has assumed paradigmatic value by at least two points of view. [...] That's why we've asked the defendant - Raffaele - to recount his experiences firsthand, as an addition to an eminently educational and operational meeting.

Inside Netflix’s ‘Amanda Knox’ Documentary: Uncovered Evidence and New Revelations
By Jen Yamato

One of the most striking new pieces of material in the documentary comes early on: Vivid, haunting footage of the late Kercher, smiling and beautiful and alive. It was filmed by Knox herself in the months before Kercher’s death, captured on a camera as the two newly acquainted roommates spent time together. That image of Kercher resonates throughout Amanda Knox as a counterbalance to the graphic crime scene photos that circulated widely after her death, reminding viewers of the human life lost at the center of the whole affair—and the selective images that came to illustrate the narrative that emerged.

By Thomas Burrows

Amanda Knox touched down in Toronto ahead of the premiere of her Netflix documentary, but it was her boyfriend - and his outfit - that grabbed attention. While Knox, 29, looked understated in jeans and a simple red shirt and black jacket, her new boyfriend Christopher Robinson chose a much bolder look. The author sported a pair of loud cheetah-print pants which he paired with a blue Letterman jacket, emblazoned with Amanda's name. He topped off the look with eyeglasses framed in red and a Yankees hat.

Film Review: ‘Amanda Knox’
By Owen Gleiberman

The Amanda Knox story, when it happened nine years ago, came packaged with so much shrill hyperbole that if you read the reports and tried to figure out for yourself what happened, it was almost impossible not to get lost in a maze of outrageousness, all leading to the implication that she was guilty. The girl with the suspicious eyes! Who slept with so many men! And together with her Italian boyfriend (who was also tried and convicted), along with a third accomplice, killed the roommate in the frenzied climax of an orgy! It was all delivered like some latter-day Manson episode, to the point that Amanda’s “guilt” became a self-fulfilling prophecy.

'Amanda Knox': Toronto Review
By Allan Hunter

"The lingering question mark over Knox’s guilt or innocence is what makes her such a troubling figure...Indeed, the film carries such a sense that this is Knox’s side of the story, and her experience of events, that the violent death of Meredith Kercher is not quite given the weight it deserves. Tellingly, Kercher’s family are only seen in press conference footage...We may never know what happened on the night of Meredith Kercher’s murder but McGinn and Blackhurst seem to side with those who believe that Rudy Guede was the guilty party... In many respects, Knox is no more sympathetic a figure than she was nine years ago.."

McGinn and Blackhurst told me they weren’t particularly interested in Knox’s guilt or innocence. Instead, Amanda Knox reexamines the case that made perfect tabloid fodder through a more discerning lens to attempt to touch on a larger truth.

If you think watching Netflix's new Amanda Knox documentary is the right thing to do, you need to examine your morals
By Charlotte Gill

...Amanda Knox’s apparent disregard for the Kercher family has been downright unbelievable. The kindest thing she could have done since her release from prison would have been to slip away, out of sight. But she has exploited her situation for all it’s worth, with insensitive interviews, a lucrative book deal, and now Netflix.

...In a trailer for the documentary, Knox stares into the camera, dead behind the eyes. “I am you,” she pleads (NB: No, you’re really not). It’s edited in such a way as to make everyone ask: did she or didn't she do it? The deliberate sensationalism is tacky and frankly, I just wish she’d go away...

How Netflix's new Amanda Knox documentary makes you completely rethink the case
By Jason Guerrasio

“We met Amanda and Raffaele when they were acquitted in 2011, but it wasn’t until 2013 that she decided, on her own, that she was ready to talk,” Blackhurst said. “That was always very important to us to say we’re not going to come and dine and dash, we’re not trying to steal something out of your mouth and leak it on Twitter as quickly as possible. We want to put in the time to understand you as people.”

They shot Knox for the first time in 2014. Once she signed on, Raffaele, Mignini, and others including Nick Pisa, who broke many of the stories about the case for the Daily Mail, also agreed to talk.

Amanda Knox review – slick documentary excels with unprecedented access
By Benjamin Lee

...it’s hearing from Knox herself that’s clearly of most appeal, and she is given ample opportunity to explain her story from beginning to end. She’s a conflicting presence, at times sympathetic and at others, too earnest. The style of the film is often so slick that it becomes hard to distinguish genuine emotion, as the interviews seem a little over-stylised.

Why Amanda Knox trusted two rookie filmmakers to tell her story in a new Netflix doc
By Amy Kaufman

A month after Amanda Knox was released from prison, a pair of rookie filmmakers flew to Seattle to meet her. [...] ... in 2011 a friend of theirs suggested Knox might make for an interesting subject. [...]
They were young — McGinn is 31 now, Blackhurst, 35 — and they thought that their age might make Knox more inclined to trust them. A mutual friend made the introduction, and Knox agreed to a meeting.
“We just sat and listened,” recalled Blackhurst. “I think she just saw us as two young guys, and we weren’t the stereotypical people that were probably reaching out to her at the time. We didn’t have any preconceived ideas about her or the case.”

Making ‘Amanda Knox’: Tabloids, Trump, and the ‘Commodification of Tragedy’
By Jen Yamato

Their pitch to Knox was simple, McGinn told The Daily Beast at the Toronto Film Festival, where the documentary Amanda Knox premiered ahead of a September 30 Netflix debut. “We said, ‘We want to listen. We want to get your side of the story, and we’re not in this to make something sensationalist. We want to tell the real story.’”
...
“We met this man who told us about this Italian concept of dietrologia,” explained Blackhurst, who with McGinn traveled to Perugia on research missions and interview shoots to gather material for their feature-length documentary. “The logic that a simple answer is never the answer. We learned all these things that, to us, informs why events unfolded the way they did. And I don’t think most people were talking about that or trying to understand their system or the culture.”
...
Amanda Knox “is not a piece of advocacy,” he [McGinn - ed.] added. “It’s a story about human beings and how this kind of thing can take over entire news networks.”
...
“I think Amanda talked to us at that time because she was facing a legal decision and she was ultimately reconvicted right after that,” said Blackhurst. Sollecito agreed around the same time, also facing a second conviction...

New documentary explores story behind Amanda Knox’s trial over housemate’s murder
By Olivia Lambert

The thing he [Mignini - ed.] said stuck out most to him at the crime scene, was the smashed window.
“Nothing had been stolen and there was no evidence somebody climbed the wall (to get to the window)."
“Immediately I could tell it was a staged break-in. It could have no other function than this. To throw off suspicion from someone who has a connection to the house.”

'Amanda Knox': Film Review
By John DeFore

Still, both men [Giuliano Mignini and Nick Pisa - ed.] are initially shown as credible witnesses, and those who don't know the story will be moved by apparent signs that Knox was involved in the killing. Pressed hard by interrogators, she gave suspicious testimony she later recanted; in a search at the home of her boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, where she claimed to have slept the night Kercher was killed, police found a kitchen knife they said carried the victim's DNA. It doesn't take too long for the movie to challenge these items persuasively, though, showing an outside review of the forensic work that explains how the "chaos" at the crime scene and in laboratories likely contaminated the physical evidence.

Controversy Swirls Around New Netflix Documentary ‘Amanda Knox’
By Miles Goslett

Nothing about this tragic case has ever been straightforward. But now it turns out the same could arguably be said of Netflix’s documentary.
But despite the claims to be objective, Heat Street has established that one of its producers, Stephen Robert Morse, has already delivered his views on the case and he seems to be in no doubt that Knox is innocent.
Morse presented his thoughts in a 1700-word post on his personal blog in February 2014.
This post was subsequently deleted but we have managed to track it down and read it. Having done so, it has to be asked: how objective is this film and did Morse enter into it with a pro-Knox agenda?
The post is titled “Amanda Knox Is Joffrey: Fighting The SVU-Obsessed Narcissistic Trolls Who Want To Live In Her World”.
In his intemperate essay, he proclaims Knox’s innocence and criticises those who believe her to be guilty. He also launches an attack on the British press because allegedly they wrote “crap” about the case. […]
From the post we learn that Morse was able to travel to Perugia in 2011 to examine the case himself in what he describes as “independent investigative journalism”.
It may have been these things, but it was also funded by a European Union grant.
After speaking to “thirty” people about the case (we have no idea who they are) he concludes:
“Not a soul thought Amanda and Rafaelle were guilty. They were simply at the wrong place, at the wrong time...”
But among the many outstanding questions surrounding the case can be added these regarding Netflix’s film: why did Morse apparently remove from public view the blog post in which he wrote with such passion in defence of Knox; and how has this affected the project overall?
Heat Street asked Morse to comment several times but he did not respond directly to requests to do so.
A Netflix spokesman said: “Stephen Morse was given an honorary producer credit for his role in introducing Rod Blackhurst and Brian McGinn to a family friend of Amanda Knox. Rod and Brian are the co-directors of the documentary and Stephen Morse did not have any creative input into the film.”

Judge not: how Netflix produced the definitive Amanda Knox film
By Charlie Lyne

With the benefit of a decade of hindsight, Netflix’s more polished overview Amanda Knox approaches the story with a clear head, a clear conscience and – like 90% of contemporary documentaries – an abundance of crystal-clear drone camerawork. Interviewing most of the key players at length, the film lays the blame for Knox’s false conviction at the twin doors of media hype and moral self-righteousness. Knox, it seems, spent four years in prison largely for a failure to grieve in quite the way that various middle-aged men would have liked. […]

…Those who continue to assert Knox’s guilt will no doubt scoff as she tells her well-honed version of events, seeming less like a woman once convicted of murder and more like a sardonic podcast host.

Amanda Knox – Courting the Press
By Miv Evans

One of the reasons Netflix financed this documentary could be that Amanda Knox narrates in person. However, her presence is far from charismatic as she sits woodenly on a stool, telling us what we already know and peppering her words with badly delivered banalities such as, “Either I’m a psychopath in sheep’s clothing, or I am you.” And as she stares dramatically into the camera, it becomes apparent that, somewhere along the way, Miss Knox has become addicted to fame and this is simply another vehicle to feed her habit.
[...]
Raffaele, Amanda’s boyfriend, is as vague as his paramour about this incident and also about everything else. Amanda ended their relationship when they were initially found guilty, but when they are exonerated, she is shown talking to him on the telephone. An explanation of how the pair ended their estrangement is another subject the filmmakers fail to track.

Netflix Amanda Knox Documentary: Why Murder Case Appeals To Our Base-Level Fears
By Tufayel Ahmed

Where does Amanda go from here? Did you get the impression from her, having made this documentary, she’d just like to be anonymous? Or would you be unsurprised if, say, she signed a book deal?
Blackhurst: All of these people are trapped and defined by this: Amanda, the Kercher family, Mignini and Sollecito. They’re all accidental celebrities—none of them asked to be in this position.
McGinn: It’ll be interesting to see what each of them do going forward. I think most of them have kept a low profile since 2011. The fact that the media is still covering them does not necessarily mean they are trying to seek the spotlight. That’s important to remember.

What Does Amanda Knox Think Of The Netflix Doc? She Offers Her Quiet Support
By Olivia Truffaut-Wong

It's safe to assume that Knox supports the new film, as she participated in its making, although when contacted by Bustle, a rep for Knox had no comment. [...]

Knox seems to have given the documentary her full blessing, as she's tweeted a link to the trailer from her official Twitter account and has shared links to articles praising the film. She even attended the Amanda Knox premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in mid-September. Overall, though, Knox seems to prefer her privacy when it comes to the doc, as she was not present at a TIFF Q&A following the premiere, and, according to the LA Times, was not available for interviews or press requests at the festival. Perhaps, instead of lending the documentary her vocal support, Knox has chosen to let it speak for itself.

[...] Whatever the reason, it seems unlikely that we will hear Knox speak about the documentary before its premiere on Sept. 30. After that, who knows?

It’s Finally Possible to Understand What Happened to Amanda Knox
By Gabriella Paiella

In the fall of 2010, I flew to Perugia, Italy, where I would spend the first semester of my senior year of college abroad. I had chosen the small Umbrian city partially because I found a program that allowed me to pursue an independent study and partially because I was hoping to improve my Italian, which, despite a father who’d grown up in Milan, was embarrassingly shoddy. Before I set off for my trip, I remember being preoccupied with the mundanities of study abroad: coordinating my flights, figuring out what to pack, researching cell-phone plans. The last thing on my mind was Amanda Knox, whose infamous trial had occurred the previous year.

Inside Netflix’s Amanda Knox: ‘She was cast as a she-devil’
By Tom Seymour

With swarms of journalists competing with Pisa on the ground in Perugia, it’s easy to see why the legal proceedings became a trial by media. Yet the directors are keen to defend Pisa. “Nick stands for a new generation of freelance journalists who, in the absence of dedicated correspondents from traditional news organisations, can report on stories for a large number of outlets – from tabloid news to traditional papers to television networks,” says McGinn.
“But the film is also an indictment of the culture that wants to consume these stories,” says Blackhurst. “The people who want to cast the stone at Nick are often the same people logging on every morning, keen to read the latest, grisliest titbits from the case.”

'Amanda Knox Has A Right To Protest Her Innocence'
By Polly Dunbar

On the evening of November 3, 2007, I was sent to Perugia to report on Meredith's murder for the newspaper I worked for. Her body had been found earlier that day [correction: Meredith Kercher's lifeless body was found on Nov.2, 2007 - ed.]

...I worked with Nick Pisa, a British reporter based in Italy who went on to cover the case so extensively that he features as an expert in the Netflix documentary, Amanda Knox. We roamed around the city's bars and cafes, speaking to people who'd known Meredith, all of whom described her as sociable, sweet, clever and conscientious.

Then something happened which I've thought about countless times since. An Italian journalist told us the police already had a suspect: 'the American housemate', as they called Knox. How could they have reached such a dramatic conclusion just a day after finding Meredith's body?..

..Despite her acquittal in 2011 – and second, definitive exoneration by the Italian Supreme Court last year - there are many people who still believe Amanda Knox is guilty. Despite her release from prison after serving four years, she'll never really be free. That's why, although I don't know if her participation in the documentary will change the minds of anyone determined to believe she's a cold-blooded murderer, I can understand her wanting to try.

'I am a terrible monster or a regular person': Loved up Amanda Knox opens up about provocative new film
that questions her innocence and says the prosecutor forgot about victim Meredith Kercher

By Chris Spargo

Knox appeared on Good Morning America to promote the special on Thursday, and acknowledged the fact that despite being cleared of all charges many still believe she is guilty of murder.

'I think I'm trying to explain what it feels like to be wrongfully convicted,' she said about her aim with the documentary.

Knox also hit out at the prosecutor in the case, saying he made the proceedings more about her and less about the actual victim - Kercher.

Host Robin Roberts asked Knox about how she thought the Kercher family would deal with this new documentary, and the fact that their daughter's murder has been the subject of so much media fascination over the past decade.

‘For them that's never going to end and that's the really sad part about this tragedy,' said Knox.

'As soon as the prosecutor made this about [me] she's been lost in all of that. But that doesn't change the fact that we have an obligation to everyone who could be innocent to find out the truth.'

Amanda Knox on Her Life as an Exoneree, New Netflix Doc: 'There's No Way I Can Go Back to Being the Person Who I Was Before' (VIDEO)
By JuJu Chang, Erin Brady, ...

“The way the media represented me outside of the crime scene was taken out of context and magnified in order to fixate on the inappropriateness and define it as inappropriate,” Knox said. “But the other thing is: It doesn’t matter whether or not my boyfriend was comforting me outside of the house where I had just found out my roommate was murdered. It’s irrelevant because the evidence of the case proved my innocence.”
...
“The first guilty verdict, I couldn’t believe it, because I still believed that it was impossible to convict an innocent person,” Knox said. “I had already been through two years imprisonment and everything being thrown at me, but I was so sure that my innocence would win out.”
...
“My reaction is that he [Rudy Guede - ed.] wasn’t found guilty of everything that he was guilty of,” Knox said. “And that’s just because in the criminal justice system, they allowed him to be tried separately from me, and that is something that he needs to answer to.”
...
“I am not being hunted anymore. That means that I can finally be proactive,” Knox said. “I am going to take ownership of the fact that I am an exoneree and share the fact that there is a voice to be heard with them … and what matters now is sharing and finding value in their experience, and … I am in a unique position to do so, and I am going to try.”

Amanda Knox Reveals Why She Initially Lied About Where She Was When Meredith Kercher Was Killed
By Dave Quinn

Amanda Knox has revealed why she initially lied and told Italian police she was in the apartment when her roommate Meredith Kercher was killed in November 2007.

Sitting down with JuJu Chang on Friday’s Nightline, Knox explained that Italian police broke her down during a grueling 53-hour interrogation.

“I was hit on the back of the head, I was yelled at. Police were coming in and out of the room telling me that I was a liar,” she said. “It was chaos. It was utter chaos.”

She told Nightline interrogators had made her doubt her own memories.

“The police told me that I had amnesia, and that I better remember the truth,” she said. “And so what they were forcing me to consider was that my memories that I had spent the night with Raffaele were wrong and that I needed to re-scramble my brain around in order to bring out the truth.”

Soon Knox told investigators she was there in the house and covering her ears to block out Kercher’s screams. The confession was a false memory.

“A lot of cases of someone who is wrongfully convicted include a false confession, where someone was put through coercive interrogation techniques that led them to break,” she explained.

Looking back on the case, Knox said she understands how she will forever be tied to it. “I am never going to be free of having had to go through that experience,” she said.

"Amanda Knox" Presents a New (Old) Villain: The Media. But what about the Case Evidence?
By Fred J. Walsh

Netflix's new documentary, directed by Knox advocates Brian McGinn and Rod Blackhurst, is worth checking out. Well-crafted and watchable, the film provides 92 minutes of case overview infused with all-new, never-before-seen interviews with main players. But its presentation is by no means a complete picture of the case, and hopefully will not be interpreted as offering especially great insight into the factual guilt or innocence of Ms. Knox or her co-defendant, former short-term boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, in the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher.

Netflix's Amanda Knox Leaves People of Color Out of the Story
By Charles Mudede

What is certain is that the documentary is not interested in the people of color involved in the case. Indeed, Meredith Kercher, who was not white, but Indian and white European, is basically reduced to a dead foot sticking out of a duvet. There is not a single word on the fate of Lumumba, whose life was financially and emotionally turned upside down by Knox’s fingering. As for Rudy Guede, the British journalist Pisa gets the final word on him: He is worthless because his story isn’t juicy. He is just another black man who committed a crime, another black man who can’t keep his dick in his pants, another black man behind bars. Now where is the story in that? But a white, blond, and young American woman who, while exploring her sexuality in a dreamy Italian town, gets wrapped up in a murder that looks like a sex game gone wrong—that story is going to put some wings on the newspapers.

Was Netflix's Amanda Knox Documentary Biased? (VIDEO)
By Jean Bentley

One of the directors of the film, Brian McGinn, tells E! News that despite the fact that he and fellow filmmaker Rod Blackhurst secured the cooperation of Amanda Knox herself for the documentary, they did their best to keep as neutral as possible.

"For us, the thing that was so important was grounding the movie in the actual legal findings," McGinn says. "There are certainly people that disagree with the findings of the Italian supreme court, and I don't think that that's really going to change. I think people have made up their minds about this case one way or the other, and the thing that was important for us was actually to step back and to remove personal, subjective opinions from it..."

My Review Of The Deceptive Netflix “Amanda Knox” Documentary
By Ergon

- The Producer Stephen Robert Morse hid his involvement in the project with Brian McGinn and Rod Blackhurst since 2011. They had ALL made inflammatory comments in favour of Amanda Knox over the years, with Morse hastily deleting some (but not all) as the Netflix sale came up.

- He even called Nick Pisa “a piece of shit” in Perugia in 2011. It was the reputable Danish production company head Mette Heide that approached Mignini and Pisa, who didn’t know of Morse’s involvement, but that gives the background to this biased ‘documentary’ and why some may feel it is less than fair or balanced in its portrayal of the protagonists.

Standard Of Review: Documentary ‘Amanda Knox’ Raises More Questions Than Answers
By Harry Graff

While Mignini plays a large role, and the attorney for co-defendant Rudy Guede also appears onscreen, the documentary is mostly silent regarding Knox’s own defense.
[...]
The documentary also glosses over other aspects of Italian law. After her original trial and her appellate trial (which exonerated her), Knox was re-tried and was again found guilty. But the film yada-yadas over this third trial. And Amanda Knox spends only a little time on the Italian Supreme Court decision that set her free for good. The film has little interest in explaining the legal standards for each of these courts.

Amanda Knox confirms her relationship with new boyfriend days after celebrating five years since she was released

By Brittany Vonow

The young woman, who was recently thrown back into the spotlight upon the release of a Netflix documentary about the murder case that saw her imprisoned, made the announcement about eight months after the couple had started dating.
She had previously revealed on her blog that the couple had moved in together at the end of September.
Just two days before making the relationship public, the young woman shared the date October 3, writing: "October 3rd, 2011. Five years ago today I was freed from four years of wrongful imprisonment."
Before having moved in together, the couple had also travelled to Detroit in March 2016 this year.

Rescuing Amanda Knox
By pataz1

[...] Amanda is America’s “woman in distress;” and the filmmakers are her white knights who have arrived to rescue her from the evil beasts of Nick Pisa and Guiliano Mignini.
In the film, the brutal murder of Meredith Kercher is overshadowed by focusing on Nick Pisa and the British tabloids as a stand-in for mainstream media reporting, then portraying Knox (instead of Meredith) as the victim of Pisa’s reporting. [...] The US media organizations were seemingly as content to report on what Knox’s representatives said without fact checking, as Nick Pisa was content to report on what trial informants told him without fact checking. Largely absent from US reporting was any real information on the case or evidence (a problem repeated in the Netflix documentary).

Amanda Knox Spent Two Years Deciding Whether or Not to Speak Out in Netflix Documentary (VIDEO)
By Lindsay Kimble

There was a point, though, when the Amanda Knox star subject wasn’t on board for the on-camera sit-down, directors Rod Blackhurst and Brian McGinn tell Chelsea Handler in the latest episode of Chelsea.

“We kind of gave her the decision to make on her own,” Blackhurst says of asking Knox to participate. “We said, ‘This is the film we’d like to make,’ and we then were hands-off. And she decided she didn’t want to do it at first.”
...
Both men said they filmed the documentary under the assumption that Knox, now 29, is indeed innocent.
...
“I think what was important for us to do was to ground the end of the film in the final Italian legal conclusion, which was the Italian Court of Cassation — their version of the Supreme Court — ruled in 2015 that they were to be acquitted of the charge,” Blackhurst explains. “And so that freed us up to remove any personal speculation.”

People believed Amanda Knox was capable of murder because of her 'crazy eyes'
By Jethro Nededog

The "Amanda Knox" filmmakers Brian McGinn and Rod Blackhurst appeared on Netflix's "Chelsea" on Friday and discussed what they found were the hardest things for Knox to overcome during the trials.
In "Amanda Knox," Knox herself mentions how impactful her eyes were on people's judgment of her. Host Chelsea Handler referred to them as "crazy eyes." [...]
In the documentary, Knox addressed the judgment of her based on her eyes:
"You're trying to find the answer in my eyes when the answer is right over there [referring to the lack of DNA evidence placing her in the victim's room]. You're looking at me, why? These are my eyes. They're not objective evidence."

Sister of victim speaks out to warn we still don't REALLY know what happened despite 'unnecessary' Netflix show
By Ryan Parry

In a rare and emotional interview, Stephanie has told how it's difficult to see yet another 'unnecessary' film about what happened and she opens up about the hurt her family is still experiencing, how the documentary still doesn't answer key questions in the case and how her family is in an agonizing 'limbo' over Meredith's death. It also frustrates her that once again a film has been produced that largely ignores the most important element of this case - the victim.
...
Stephanie said: 'Everyone seemed to say they wanted to try to rebuild their lives, including Knox and Sollecito, and yet we constantly see programs and interviews.'
'I don't understand why they want to keep reliving this nightmare.'
'I guess it might seem contradictory me giving an interview criticizing them and Netflix but if they so desperately want to find a way to move on with their lives as much as we are trying to, as hard as it is for all involved, I struggle to see why they participate?'
'Surely they want to separate themselves from this tragic experience?'

Did Netflix Mislead Heat Street Over New ‘Amanda Knox’ Film?
By Miles Goslett

Despite the project’s claims to be objective, we revealed that one of its producers, Stephen Morse, had already delivered his views on the case in a 2014 blog post which he subsequently deleted.
In his post, Morse was in no doubt of Knox’s innocence, thereby extinguishing any sense of even-handedness on the part of the film’s makers.
...
Given the ongoing controversy surrounding not just the case but also Netflix’s film, it is worth asking: who is telling the truth about Morse’s role – Netflix or Morse? Do any other discrepancies exist in Netflix’s project?

What Do People from Perugia Think of the New Amanda Knox Documentary?
By Leon Benz

Marco, 30, Social Media Marketing Manager

In 2007, you were studying at the University of Perugia. Do you have any personal memories of Kercher's murder?
Marco: I do—Meredith was in a class with me. I didn't know her, and we never spoke, but the morning after the murder the professor asked where the "Erasmus group" was, and I replied that they weren't there because one of them had died. That's what I had heard. The class then just went on as normal.

What did you think of the documentary?
I read some time ago about a meeting between Netflix Italy, the documentary makers, and someone from [Italy's national public broadcasting company] RAI. Netflix said the documentary would concentrate on the role of the media in the story, and I would have found that interesting. But then I saw the documentary, and the only focus on the role of the media is when they talk to a journalist, Nick Pisa, from the Daily Mail who—in his own words—was someone who'd do anything to get his story on the front page.

Decision in January [2017] on compensation to Sollecito

Translation: Catnip
Read news digest: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=131396#p131396

The Florence Court of Appeal has scheduled a hearing for next January on the merits of Raffaele Sollecito's half-million euro (€ 516 k) compensation claim for unjust detention for almost four years of imprisonment.

The hearing will be held on 27 January.

Arguing against the claim, through their legal representatives, will be the Prosecutor General and the Ministry of Finance, arguing, among other things, that various statements made by Raffaele to the police and the fact that he was carrying a flick-knife in his pocket led to his arrest.

Raffaele Sollecito was not present at today's hearing.

His lawyers, Luca Maori and Giulia Bongiorno, have repeated their compensation claim, reminding the Appeal Court of the Court of Cassation's judgment reasons, which criticized the conduct of the investigation. In particular the part criticizing the way the investigation had been handled by the police.
...
The Court has ordered the acquisition of the contents of the investigation file to 'study' it. All documents relating to the various stages of the proceedings will be acquired.

After the January hearing, the Court will have five days to decide the merits of the claim.

Amanda Knox: Exoneration is just the beginning
By Amanda Knox

Meredith was a kind and outgoing British student who was murdered by Rudy Guede. She was my roommate, and I was accused of her murder by a prosecutor whose insane theories and disregard for evidence landed me in prison for four years. Italy's highest court ultimately exonerated me, finding “stunning flaws” in the investigation and “an absolute lack of biological traces” connecting me to the crime.

“We had the luxury of time, and we kind of went on with our lives. We didn’t know if we were ever going to be able to make a film, but we knew that the only film we wanted to make was if we could have Amanda, and also have [Lead Prosecutor] Giuliano Mignini,” Blackhurst explains. Ultimately, the director adds, “They all knew that we were making the type of film that we said we were going to make, we were trustworthy. They saw that we were being true to that, so they let us into these very personal moments that no one else was getting access to.”

The Meredith process: point of view of lawyer Maresca in a book

“Processo Meredith: giustizia perfetta?" ["The Meredith Process: Perfect Justice?"], to be released by Pisan publishers ETS, is the story of the long and painful path of the trial seen from the point of view of lawyer Francesco Paolo Maresca, who was the lawyer for the victim's family and is the author of the book that will be in bookstores from November 10. "That morning of November 1, 2007 - writes an editor in a note - the lawyer Maresca was preparing a good coffee. He was so focused on the daily action that a ringing phone startled him. A moment later he found himself catapulted into one of the most shocking and controversial events of recent years: the murder of Perugia. He would have had to defend the family of Meredith Kercher, the girl who died in unclear circumstances in her apartment in the Umbrian capital. Maresca entered the apartment in Via della Pergola 7 thinking 'that this house was the perfect setting for a murder'."

The book tells the story of the case from the discovery of the body up until March 27, 2015, when the two defendants, Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox, were acquitted without referral (to a new trial) [senza rinvio]. The book, writes the criminologist Roberta Bruzzone in the preface, "has the indisputable merit of bringing Meredith center stage: often the victims in these kinds of cases are put into the background, become progressively grainy figures at the back of the media stage while the alleged perpetrators climb to prominence (come into the limelight) with their many dark sides."

Amanda Knox’s strength to deal with social-media specters
By Jonathan Martin

Amanda Knox definitely did not dress up for Halloween as Amanda Knox. [...] This Halloween, Knox dressed up as fictional superhero Jessica Jones.

The choice reflects her vindication as perhaps America’s most famous exoneree. Italy’s Supreme Court declared her definitely innocent, citing “stunning flaws” in the investigation.

She’s innocent, and if you don’t believe her, talk to Jessica Jones.


THE SEATTLE TIMES

November 2, 2016

Amanda Knox called friends in Perugia: "Are you OK after the earthquake?"

"I heard about the earthquake, is everyone OK? Anybody hurt? " The phone call that some young people [ragazzi] in Perugia have received in the last hour cannot leave them indifferent. Also because on the other end of the phone was someone from overseas. To call friends left in Perugia was Amanda Knox, who is concerned about their fate after the series of devastating earthquakes that hit the province of Perugia.

What is striking, however, is that the phone call came, ironically, exactly nine years after the murder of Meredith Kercher, her British roommate in the Via della Pergola house that even today, despite the terror of continuous tremors / aftershocks, is the scene of macabre tourism.

In the two days of previous permit [to leave prison], Guede had met family and friends but was unable to get out of the [guest] house. This time, however, the 29-year-old has been allowed to have breakfast, lunch and dinner outside the hotel / guest house: four hours not just out of prison, but also of freedom from house arrest.

Anguish for Meredith Kercher’s family as her killer enjoys slap-up restaurant dinner during 72-hour prison release for good behaviour
By Nick Pisa

Killer Rudy Guede tucks into a slap up restaurant dinner after being given a 72 hours release pass for good behaviour.
His latest taste of freedom is the third this year and also the longest – he is not due back in his cell until Tuesday afternoon.
In pictures posted on Tusciaweb, Ivory Coast drifter Guede can be seen taking advantage of his freedom from Viterbo’s Mammagialla prison, enjoying a pizza dinner with family and friends at Il Richiastro, a restaurant in the town.
[...]
A source close to Meredith’s family, who live in Coulson, Surrey, said: ”They find it quite shocking that someone sentenced for 16 years for their daughter’s murder is out on the town with friends.”

Tusciaweb reported that Guede, who was jailed in 2008, had been spotted in a restaurant in Viterbo, after being granted temporary release from the nearby Mammagialla prison.

It is not the first time he has been allowed out of prison. In June he was granted leave for the first time as a reward for his 'good behaviour' in prison and spent some of the time working at a volunteer centre.

He has been out twice more since then, but had to stay in a halfway house but on the fourth occasion he was allowed to have breakfast, lunch and dinner outside the hostel.

Amanda Knox writes column against Trump despite his support when she was in prison

Amanda Knox published a column about her opposition to President-elect Donald Trump despite his support for the West-Seattle native when she spent nearly four years in an Italian prison following a highly-publicized murder conviction.

Trump called out to citizens and government officials in 2011 to boycott Italy in the wake of Knox’s arrests. Secretary of State at that time was none other than his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

On Tuesday, Knox published her piece called "Amanda stands with Trump” in the West Seattle Herald, a publication she’s been contributing to quietly since returning to Western Washington.

Court to hear Guede Kercher case review

A December 20 hearing has been set before the Florence Court of Appeals to examine a request to review the conviction of Rudy Guede for the murder of Meredith Kercher, the press office of the Ivory Coast native announced on Thursday. [...] "This is the first significant step towards recognizing Rudy's innocence, though the path will be long and complex," Guede's spokesman Daniele Camilli said. "The court could have declared the petition inadmissible, but instead set a date for a hearing to discuss it," his lawyer, Tommaso Pietrocarlo, told ANSA. Though Guede admitted to his presence in the home where Kercher was murdered that night, he has always claimed that he was innocent of the act itself. The review was requested by the man's lawyers on the basis of what they hold to be contrasting judgments on the sentence that acquitted Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox, who were also defendants in the murder case. Francesco Maresca, the lawyer for Kercher's family, told ANSA that "we feel that the request for a review of the trial against Rudy Guede is baseless." Maresca said that "there is no question as to whether or not Guede was at the scene of the crime." "The setting of a hearing to assess the petition," he added, "is yet another part of legal proceedings that seem endless".

Dec 20: Florence appeals court to hear Rudy Guede's revision request. He claims #amandaknox rulings conflict w/judgments in his case.

Hearing set for 20 December

"The Court of Appeal of Florence has fixed for the 20th of December a hearing to deliberate on the application for revision submitted by Rudy Guede. “This is an important first step towards recognition of Rudy’s innocence, even if the path will be long and complex”, to make it known is Daniele Camilli, a spokesman for Rudy Guede [...]

The application was filed in August in the Court of Appeal of Florence by his defenders, lawyers Tommaso Pietrocarlo and Monica Grossi. The review was requested on the grounds of his judgment(s) conflicting with the ruling that acquitted Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox.

“We are firmly convinced of our good reasons - declares Daniele Camilli - but we must recognize that the task now entrusted to the Court of Appeal is extremely delicate. And we cannot ignore the fact that a young girl lost her life in dramatic circumstances. We must therefore build our defense based on the criteria of discipline and poise/restraint, while respecting the role of the Court of Appeal and all other parties involved in the proceedings."

Jason Flom’s Guilt Trip
What’s the music mogul behind acts like Katy Perry and Kid Rock doing in the studio with Amanda Knox? He’s the powerful voice of Wrongful Conviction.

By Aaron Gell

“Wow, that is quite the board!” Amanda Knox exclaimed on Friday morning, taking in the massive mixing console at the Platinum Sound recording studio in Hell’s Kitchen, as she deposited her luggage in a corner of the room. The former exchange student, who was prosecuted by Italian authorities for the murder of her roommate based on a ludicrous theory that nonetheless inspired feverishly lurid headlines around the world, was in town from Seattle to tape a holiday edition of the Wrongful Conviction podcast.

Amanda Knox, Trump paid her lawyers

Translation: Google, Catnip

Guido 'George' Lombardi, an Italian who lives and does business in the United States, told the press: his friend Donald Trump, yes, the new President of the United States, "trusting his instinct, had sided with the party of innocence" and paid a portion of legal costs for defending American student Amanda Konx, accused of being implicated in the murder of Meredith Kercher and then acquitted along with her then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito.

Trump bitter
Lombardi, speaking with La Stampa, has revealed that, according to him, Donald Trump's interest in the case allowed the Knoxes to gain the level of notoriety which in turn allowed them to obtain backing and financing: "Unfortunately – he also said – there was not even a thank you from Amanda, Don was left with a sour taste in his mouth (embittered) about that".

VR and Subjective Truth
By Amanda Knox

Humanity still has its empathetic blind spots, especially with regard to fringe human experiences that are emotionally and politically charged—experiences with law enforcement and the criminal justice system, for instance. When I was fighting to prove my innocence in Italy, people referred to my defense as “la verità di Amanda”—Amanda’s truth. Truth was subjective, and the Italian people were bestowed with the responsibility of choosing which “truth”—Prosecutor Mignini’s or mine—compelled them the most. During those years when I was redefined as a sadistic killer and imprisoned for a crime I didn’t commit, I experienced a maddening disconnect between truth and reality. I will never forget how humanity’s weakness of imagination can actually wound. But VR can make experiences like mine more accessible than ever before. As an advocate, VR captures my attention because of its potential to humanize victims and radically amplify empathy.

Meredith Kercher Murder, Rudy Guede in court for a revision
Guede has to appear before the Court of Appeal of Florence, which will decide on the application

Read full Google translation: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=131584#p131584

Tuesday, December 20 Rudy Guede will be in court in Florence, in front of the Court of Appeal, to attend the hearing which will consider his application for a review of his trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher ... With a judgment on revision, Guede is asking to be acquitted for not having committed the crime.

A [court] hearing was set for 9 am. A request for reconsideration will be dealt with in closed session, that is, only in the presence of interested parties (which include lawyers for the civil party of the Kercher family). The public and journalists will not be allowed.
...
"The Court could also declare ex officio the inadmissibility of the case and instead set a hearing to discuss it", said to ANSA the lawyer Tommaso Pietrocarlo who oversaw the application together with his colleague Monica Grossi. "According to the documents - he added - it seems that a first step has been passed. We'll see."

Only person convicted in Kercher murder seeks acquittal
By Colleen Barry, AP

Nearly two year after Italy's highest court acquitted Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend of murdering a British student, the legal wrangling still isn't over.
Lawyers for the Ivorian man convicted in the 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher are petitioning a Florence appeals court Tuesday to overturn the only conviction in the case. They argue that the acquittals of the high-profile defendants are in conflict with the guilty verdict against Rudy Guede.
Guede, 29, is serving a 16-year sentence for the murder. When the high court upheld his sentencing, it ruled he did not act alone, although it did not name any accomplices.
Kercher family lawyer Francesco Maresca will be in court to argue that Guede's guilty verdict must stand.
...
The court, after hearing arguments, put off a ruling on the request until Jan. 10.
"The Italian justice system must give us at least one guilty party," Maresca told AP on Monday. "We want that maintained, absolutely."

Guede's Kercher petition set for Jan 10

Florence's court of appeal on Tuesday said it will decide on January 10 on a petition to review the trial of Rudy Guede, an Ivorian who is the only person convicted of the 2007 murder of British exchange student Meredith Kercher in Perugia. The court adjourned proceedings as judges requested documentation from the supreme court's conviction of Guede and its acquittal of two other former suspects, American Amanda Knox and her ex boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.

Tommaso Pietrocarlo, an attorney on Guede's defense team, said the court "will now be able to compare the two sentences", stressing that his client's conviction was based on the "necessary participation also of Amanda Know and Raffaele Sollecito", something that the supreme Cassation Court has "absolutely ruled out".

Review of Guede conviction rejected
Florence court rules petition inadmissible

A Florence court on Tuesday ruled that a petition to review the case of Ivorian Rudy Guede, who is serving a 16-year sentence for the murder of British exchange student Meredith Kercher in Perugia in 2007, was "inadmissible". Guede's lawyers said they might appeal to the supreme Court of Cassation. A lawyer for Kercher's family, Francesco Maresca, said "I'd say this story is finished." The court was reviewing documentation from the supreme court's conviction of Guede and its acquittal of two other former suspects, American Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito. Guede's defence team had argued that his conviction was based on the "necessary participation also of Amanda Know and Raffaele Sollecito", something that the supreme Cassation Court has "absolutely ruled out".

Court rejects grounds for new trial in Meredith Kercher murder case
By AP

An appeals court in Florence has rejected a bid for a new trial and possible acquittal of the only person convicted of the 2007 murder of British university student Meredith Kercher.
...
Guede was in court for the court's decision, after an hour's deliberation.
...
The Florence court did not elaborate on why it rejected Guede's bid.

His lawyer, Tommaso Pietrocarlo, said the defence will consider appealing to the Cassation court on the same issue that failed to persuade the lower level tribunal.

Meredith Murder, review of Guede’s trial inadmissible

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Read full translation: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=131637#p131637

The defense of Guede, speaking of judgments considered to be 'in conflict', drew on various circumstances / arguments to reopen the process by focusing on the fact that Meredith "was killed - said lawyer Tommaso Pietrocarlo - with Raffaele Sollecito’s knife", and "not generically with any other pointed or edged weapon, but that knife" from the house of Sollecito who, the lawyer said, had the "craze/audacity to go out with a knife, and bring it with him. " "And [it was] the same knife with which Sollecito cut the girl’s bra," said the lawyer describing the sexual assault on Meredith.
...
An admission of the request for a review was opposed by the Deputy Prosecutor General Giancarlo Ferrucci and lawyers for the Kercher family, Francesco Maresca and Vieri Fabiani. "I ask the court to issue a preliminary order which would declare inadmissible as manifestly unfounded the request of the defense - said the pg Ferrucci - and to order Rudy Guede, who initiated this request, to pay 2,000 euro fine". Pg Ferrucci also said that "the defense focused too much on the knife. But no judgment brings that knife into relation with Rudy Guede"; also on the alleged false leads of Knox in the house, about which the defense writes in the review request, the pg Ferrucci, criticizing Guede’s request, noted that "the judgment said that her intervention / participation [intervento] in the crime was incidental, secondary (accessory), not necessary", "just as Sollecito’s."

Meredith murder, no retrial for Rudy Guede

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Read full translation: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=131639#p131639

"We'll assess whether to appeal to the Supreme Court", "it does not depend on us, the final word" in this story. Thus, leaving the courtroom, the lawyer Tommaso Pietrocarlo, Rudy Guede’s defense, commented to reporters on the decision of the Court of Appeal of Florence.

"The appeals court - said the lawyer Pietrocarlo - found that, between the two judgments, there is no contradiction and incompatibility, not even at the level of abstract imagining. In our opinion, the incompatibility exists and it is quite obvious, and the review should have been permitted / allowed / admitted."

In particular, "we believed that, the Court of Cassation having ruled that that (Sollecito’s knife, ed) was not the murder weapon, that biological traces on the bra could not be attributed to Sollecito, here we thought that these findings of fact were incompatible with our conviction / judgment (against Guede, ed) because our sentence / conviction accepts the existence of that knife as an established fact, and that in carrying out the sexual assault” on Meredith the same Guede "would be assisted by Sollecito."

Sollecito's reaction:

"Guede’s - stressed Sollecito – is a process / trial that does not concern me, and which I don’t mind. At the crime scene, however, there has never been evidence of the presence of more people, but only traces of Guede. The reconstruction of the murder leads then to believe that it was done by one person".

"Guede - reminded Sollecito - chose to be tried separately from us, and any participation of myself and Amanda Knox was evaluated in our trial, after which the Supreme Court definitively acquitted us. Guede continues to follow his own procedural path".

"Don’t worry, I'm calm. I'm happy the way I'm doing; now, I need to continue my studies. Never mind if the process is not reopened, even though I know I'm innocent," said Guede, thanking his defense lawyers who spoke with him after the decision of the Court of Appeal of Florence.

"Rudy Guede is very serene - says the defense attorney Tommaso Pietrocarlo – he does not think more of this affair / story, is aware of the misfortune that has happened to him and he has accepted it. He built a completely different life, got through all these facts, while not disregarding the suffering of Meredith Kercher."

Meredith Kercher family lawyers' reaction:

A lawyer for Kercher's family, Francesco Maresca, said "I'd say this story is finished." [Vieri] Fabiani said there were no grounds to revise the trial because new evidence had not been presented and Guede's conviction was not incompatible with the acquittal of Knox and Sollecito. "What has not been proven is that the murder could not be committed without those accomplices", as claimed by Guede in his petition, Fabiani noted.

"The Court - continued the two lawyers, Maresca and Fabiani - deduced that the facts are not in conflict with each other incontrovertibly, because otherwise the review would have been admitted. The Court of Appeal, in the preliminary assessment of the request for a review, have considered it inadmissible because the facts forming the basis of the acquittal of Knox and Sollecito are not incompatible with the sentencing of Rudy Guede". Still talking to reporters, who noted that Guede was convicted of murder in complicity with others, lawyer Vieri Fabiani stressed that "the evidence was not sufficient to consider founded (with good reason) the responsibility of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito."

There was Raffaele Sollecito Saturday at the Spinning Wheel of Modena, at the opening of 'Bund World', an exhibition of Daniele Corrone, aka Daniel Bund, 30, Carpi artist who drew the latest collection of stuffed animals for Trudi. A friendship between Sollecito, sentenced in first instance but then also definitively acquitted by the Supreme Court of the charge of having participated in the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia, and Bund was born a few years ago. "His presence at the opening of my exhibition honored me - says Daniele - I right away admired the dignity with which he lived the horror and is reclaiming his life. When it comes to me, it is 'simply' Raffaele, who is a great friend." Sollecito speaks calmly, is available, does not recoil from any question: the prosecution, the prison experience, the new life, work, friendships, and Carpi.

Raffaele Sollecito against Selvaggia Luccarelli: Laughed about Meredith’s death? His response to the blogger: “Just irony on Facebook.”

Raffaele Sollecito against Selvaggia Lucarelli after a harsh attack of the journalist of Il Fatto Quotidiano, who, in her columns, said she had discovered that the young man acquitted of the murder of Meredith Kercher was among the 250 thousand members of the Facebook group "Pastorizia never dies", in which men - among other things - will exchange views on how to kill an ex and make a body disappear. Selvaggia Lucarelli has not only discovered the membership of Raffaele Sollecito in this group, but also found some of his comments.

Selvaggia Lucarelli’s battle continues against the Facebook groups that incite violence, verbal and physical, against women. But, this time, at the center of controversy, there is someone known in the news for being one of the main defendants in a murder trial.

It is Raffaele Sollecito. "Good news, especially for the family of Meredith Kercher - Lucarelli writes on the pages of Il Fatto Quotidiano - Raffaele Sollecito, after trying to recycle himself as a television commentator and a funeral undertaker 2.0, has found his place in the world: (...) as a leader of closed groups on FB that made hatred against women their riding horse [vehicle] and ends up as a humorist. Indeed, irresistible comedian with a clear preference for black humor, (…)

"… I honestly do not understand it. I joke about myself, I don't joke about others. I never mentioned Meredith in those comments, and I’d never mention her; to do so would not seem to me even cute. Even in a joke I have my limits. Between these groups and femicide [murder of women, ed] there is no link, what she [Lucarelli] says is something stupid; these groups are full of women who comment; this is satire, student spirit, there is nothing else. Everything else is nonsense. I understand that Selvaggia Lucarelli likes to speak ill of other people, I do not know her and am not willing to spend time to understand what she does in her life. Even read [what she writes], I prefer reading items of more serious and competent journalists."

Men who hate women. Men who seem to deride the tragic end, as Raffaele Sollecito, the former defendant charged with the murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia (acquitted along with Amanda Knox), posting on two 'closed groups' on Facebook that incite violence, verbal and physical, towards the female gender. Platforms on which opinions are exchanged on how to kill an ex, make a body disappear, and 'kill my girlfriend who left me for a black guy.'

Amanda Knox ex Raffaele Sollecito denies Facebook jokes about murdered Meredith Kercher
By Will Worley, Harriet Marsden

However, Mr Sollecito, 31, has provoked outrage in Italy after journalist Selvaggia Lucarelli revealed his lurid remarks – including an apparently tongue-in-cheek comment on the disposal of a body – to a number of closed Facebook groups which feature jokes about femicide, rape and murder.
...
Writing on her Facebook page, Ms Lucarelli posted screenshots of Mr Sollecito’s participation in several groups on the network, including one called “Pastorizia never dies” (meaning “Shepherds never die”) and #accazduro, meaning “with a hard d***”.

A comment which caused particular controversy was a response to someone who asked: “Master, teach me to cancel traces of a murder, as I have a couple of things to solve.”

Raffaele Sollecito's controversial comment about murder hasn't gone down well online
By Laura Holland

Now, nearly two years since he was freed, Raffaele has made some questionable comments online about murder. People have jumped to the conclusion that they were linked to Meredith's murder.

The discussion began on a closed Facebook group which The Mirror says was about how to get away with murder. Raffaele posted a comment saying, "It's easy: s*** on it and nobody will come near [the scene]!"

This has particularly caused controversy because feces were found in the toilet at Meredith's murder scene. Italian media first reported the story which prompted Raffaele to respond saying that he would "never drag her [Meredith] into it” and that he was just playing the "game of these groups".

Raffaele Sollecito: Kercher murder case left me in debt (VIDEO-->> http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04qv61z)

Raffaele Sollecito has said he has been left in financial difficulty by the legal costs incurred while proving his innocence. [...] He has launched a compensation bid against the Italian government. The hearing is on Friday (Jan. 27, ed)

'Clear my debts'
Mr Sollecito told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme the murder was "a tragedy that has destroyed my life".
He said he hoped the court would "understand that I at least need to clear up my debts".[...]
He said he had sold two properties - including his late mother's apartment - to fund the legal costs incurred over the past decade.

Media coverage
He said he was "still facing a lot of trouble, as people don't understand why I've been acquitted."
"I have to face this kind of society. I have to face anybody that doesn't support me.
"I can talk with hundreds of people and they understand I'm innocent, but the problem is one stupid portrait in the media in a few minutes reaches five million people and I cannot control it. In an instant it can change."

Sollecito told the BBC this morning that while Kercher was "the first victim", the murder case was "a tragedy that has destroyed my life".
He is seeking compensation from the Italian government to help cover the debts he accumulated while fighting his case. [...]
Sollecito said he did not think there should be a cap on such compensation: "They have to take care of people who go through so much. Not let it happen again."[...]
He said there were "many victims in this case", including "Amanda's parents, my parents, all our families... there are many others made by the prosecution's mistakes."

Decision pending from Florence Court on compensation to Sollecito
for nearly four years of unjust imprisonment


On the 27th of January, a decision is awaited from the Court of Appeal of Florence regarding the compensation claim (516,000 euro) by Raffaele Sollecito for unjust detention for nearly four years in prison after being involved as an accused in the Meredith Kercher murder case...

A request to which are opposed the Prosecutor General and Ministry of Finance.

Sollecito, shame and revenge: how much he wants to get paid by the State

During an interview on British public television BBC, the former defendant said he shall ask the Italian State for "maximum compensation, approximately 516 thousand euros, but still not enough to offset as much as my family has spent. 10 years have passed since the beginning of this nightmare. We had to sell our apartments but we still have debts, approximately 400 thousand euros. Compensation, therefore, would serve just to cover the outstanding debts."

But the former Apulian student will not be present, his lawyers will be there to tend to his interests.

In the interview, Sollecito stressed: "I hope that the judges understand that compensation would only serve to clear up debt. The first victim was Meredith, but she was not the only one. Amanda's parents, our families ... There are many more, killed [uccise] by persecutors’ mistakes".

Miss Kercher's father, John, 74, said he thinks it's 'bizarre' that Sollecito is still talking about the case, despite nine years passing.

Mr Kercher, from Croydon, South London, said: 'I don't want to make further comment. It has been nine years.'

'What fascinates me is why they keep going on about it. They've been let free - so why keep going on? It's bizarre.'

When asked about Sollecito mentioning he is in debt, Mr Kircher said: 'I think his father paid didn't he? And what about what we've paid out?'

The Court of Appeal of Florence, after more than two hours of deliberation, has reserved the decision on the request made by Raffaele Sollecito, asking the state for 516 thousand euro as compensation for wrongful imprisonment, for "the suffering endured, to the highest degree". The delay should be dissolved within five days.

It's a "physiological" procedural decision of the Court of Appeal of Florence. Said one of his lawyers, Giulia Bongiorno. "We are confident," she added. "The Supreme Court ruling that acquitted Sollecito - emphasized again Bongiorno - is clear and highlights serious responsibilities at the investigative stage." "We look forward with confidence" - commented the other [Sollecito] defense lawyer, Luca Maori, leaving the courtroom.

Amanda Knox insists she'll never change her name to avoid abuse from the public
By Dave Burke

Amanda Knox, who was convicted but later cleared of the brutal murder of British student Meredith Kercher in Italy, has vowed never to changed her name. [...] Speaking on a podcast, she said many had suggested she adopt another name to escape the attention her name has attracted.
She said: ‘People told me all the time, “You should just change your name so you don’t have to deal with it”.
‘But it’s like, you know what, no. There’s nothing wrong with being Amanda Knox. Amanda Knox didn’t do anything. I’m a good person.’
She made the comment on the Wrongful Conviction podcast by judicial reform campaigner Jason Flom.
Knox stated: ‘People were saying sorry to me for jumping to conclusions about me, and I never expected that to happen.’
And she added: ‘I’d come to peace with the idea that unless you met me, you probably hated me.’

Meredith murder, the Appeals Court rejected the [compensation] claim of Raffaele Sollecito

The Court of Appeal of Florence rejected the [compensation] claim for unjust imprisonment presented by Raffaele Sollecito, definitively acquitted of complicity in the murder of Meredith Kercher. The young man had been in prison for four years and had asked for 516 thousand euro compensation from the Italian State.

Raffaele Sollecito has reacted to the Florence Court of Appeal's decision to deny him compensation for wrongful imprisonment for the murder of Meredith Kercher. "I thought I had experienced the darkest pages of Italian justice, but I must point out that today they have written another [page] that leaves me stunned." Words reported to ANSA by one of his defenders, lawyer Giulia Bongiorno. For Sollecito – she added – compensation is "sacrosanct."

In Sollecito's words, the Court of Florence 'has denied a sacrosanct compensation'. "The judges - he added - have not taken into account the Supreme Court ruling that finally acquitted me of all charges (along with Amanda Knox, editor's note). It noted that there were serious omissions and failures in the investigation and thus there were specific responsibilities at the investigation stage. This is why I am surprised by a decision which again comes from Florence and which seems not to align with a clear judgment of the Supreme Court."

Raffaele Sollecito, no right to compensation for wrongful imprisonment: "He helped to provoke it with lies to investigators"

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Read full translation: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=131806#p131806

"There is an unjust detention which occurred because of the acquittal of the moment," say the judges of the Third Criminal Division. But he "helped to cause it with his own willful misconduct or gross negligence". Conduct, the judges write, that "consisted in making to the judicial police, investigators, and judges, particularly in the early stages of the investigation, contradictory or even frankly untrue declarations, also found in the light of the evaluations contained in the final judgment of the Supreme Court ".
...
The lawyer Giulia Bongiorno, who defends the young man with Luca Maori, has already announced an appeal to the Court of Cassation. Reserving a more complete reading of the document, Bongiorno speaks of "a multitude of errors in the reconstruction of facts, as well as document-related." An "endless and absurd story,” called it lawyer Maori. "A story in which - he added - the only guilty, Rudy Guede, will soon be released from prison after serving a reduced sentence (16 years after he was tried under the summary procedure, editor's note)".

Italian court rejects Raffaele Sollecito's €500,000 compensation claim
By Angela Giuffrida

While the court acknowledged Sollecito’s unjust imprisonment in the light of his eventual acquittal, it said in a ruling that he contributed by making “contradictory or even frankly untrue” statements in the early stages of the investigation, which constituted “intent or gross negligence”. The court ruled that this eliminated Sollecito’s right to compensation.

Speaking to Italian newspaper La Repubblica in the immediate aftermath of his acquittal, Sollecito said: “For seven years I have had a suspended life, I have lived with the fear of being arrested, but knowing I am innocent.”

Writing on Facebook after the latest court decision, Sollecito said: “I thought I had lived through the darkest pages of the Italian justice system, but despite being declared innocent by the supreme court, I must acknowledge that my harsh detention was justified.”

Sollecito, no compensation. Being innocent is not enough
By Annalisa Chirico, Il Giornale

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Read full translation: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=131841#p131841

For the Italian justice you can be innocent and, at the same time, guilty. The Court of Appeal of Florence rejected the claim for wrongful imprisonment advanced by Raffaele Sollecito: "Too many silences and lies"

The ruling (dispositivo), published by http://www.finoaprovacontraria.it (until proven otherwise, ed) website, refers to the so-called article of law on contributory negligence. In essence, a citizen, even if acquitted, who has contributed with intent or gross negligence to misleading investigators and magistrates, may see his right to obtain compensation for the unfairly imposed detention significantly diminished.

In the case of Sollecito, after four years in prison and definitive acquittal, this right is canceled (revoked, obliterated), pulverized, no compensation, not a single euro, nothing. For the judges of the Third Criminal Division, "contradictory or false statements, and the subsequent absence of clarifications" by the young engineer behind bars would have contributed to the initiation (enforcement) and continuation of preventive detention.

Kercher lawyer, doubts remain about acquittals
Maresca after rejection of compensation for wrongful imprisonment to Sollecito

"The Florence Court of Appeal confirms the uncertainty related to the acquittal of Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox that will remain in the history of Italian justice because of all the unresolved doubts that it leaves," said Francesco Maresca, the lawyer, who represents the family of Meredith Kercher, of the decision of the judges of the Tuscan capital to reject the claim for unjust imprisonment by the young man.

According to the lawyer, "the [contradictory] statements and the [strange] behavior of the two young people were justification enough for their remand, and also remember the fact that the Supreme Court has placed them in the murder house; it really does make me think that this acquittal had to be declared at all costs."

Rudy on leave in Perugia on special permit and his lawyers go to the Supreme Court for review
The young man spent a week in Umbria in December and will be back soon

Rudy Hermann Guede is back in Perugia. It happened last December when, taking advantage of one of the special permits of which he has benefited in recent months, he was a guest of his elementary school teacher who has never ceased to care for him. In addition, as has emerged, the young man, the only definitively convicted for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, will return to Perugia shortly for another period.

The appeal to the Supreme Court Meanwhile, his lawyers, Tommaso Pietrocarlo and Monica Grossi, after the Court of Appeal of Florence had rejected as inadmissible their request for a new trial, filed a petition with the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court judges may then annul the order issued in Florence, or confirm it, putting forever an end in the judicial history of Rudy Guede who has always said he is innocent.

Raffaele Sollecito: “I’m innocent but treated as guilty”
By Roberto Arduini

Read full translation: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=131892#p131892

Raffaele Sollecito doesn’t give up. That they had refused to award him a compensation for wrongful imprisonment did not get him down. And speaking on Radio Cusano Campus during ECG, the format led by Roberto Arduini and Andrea Di Ciancio, he announces: "We have already appealed, even if waiting for an answer will take a few months."

Raffaele Sollecito is still suffering from the fact that the Court of Appeal of Florence has rejected his claim for unjust detention: "I'm not okay. Considering everything I went through during all these years, for me it's really a shame what happened. We appealed against a judgment that is written in clearly/totally accusatory key, a ruling that is in fact a new sentence, which does not take into account what emerged earlier in all the trials that had to do with my case.

Meredith, lawyer: she can now be remembered outside the courtroom
Civil party’s lawyer presents book in Perugia, PM in the audience

‘Meredith Kercher's family can finally remember the poor Mez outside the courtroom': this is now the state of mind / mood of the family of the British student murdered in Perugia, according to their Florentine lawyer, Francesco Maresca. The lawyer presented his book “The Meredith trial, perfect justice?”, at a meeting in Perugia.

Also present [in the audience] Giuliano Mignini, the magistrate who has followed the investigation right from the start. […] Responding to ANSA, on the sidelines of the meeting, Maresca said, for the Kercher family, there remained “the memory of a difficult and long experience with the Italian justice system, after which they were left with so many question marks, and the feeling of an imperfect justice.”

Sollecito’s lawyer: Guede should be banished (expelled, deported) [from Italy]
"As soon as he is finished serving sentence," says lawyer Maori

'Once he served his sentence, Rudy Guede should be expelled from Italy': this request came from the lawyer Luca Maori, one of the defenders of Raffaele Sollecito. The Ivorian has been spending these days in Perugia, home of his former fifth grade teacher, where he's taking advantage of a [special] permit award. […] '[We would like to] ask the police station in Perugia - Maori continued - to take action and initiate the expulsion procedure of Guede, who is not an Italian national, as soon as he finishes serving his sentence (in the Viterbo prison - ed.) Many foreigners are expelled from our country for far less serious offenses than murder for which the Ivorian has been convicted.”

Sollecito contests/challenges no to compensation for wrongful imprisonment
Lawyers demanding cancellation of the decision

As learned by ANSA, Sollecito's lawyers, Giulia Bongiorno and Luca Maori, seek an annulment of the decision of the Florentine judges. The date of the hearing in the Supreme Court has not been set yet. In their appeal, the lawyers of the young Apulian argued that the motivations (Motivazioni) for the rejection of the claim "resemble a sentence of conviction." "The judges - said the lawyers - have taken into account the arguments of the judgment of the Court of Appeal of Florence which convicted Sollecito and Knox, not however those of the Supreme Court which acquitted them permanently pointing out errors in the investigation."

Sollecito's lawsuit against the judges who were responsible for the "guilty" verdict(s) in two trials (in Perugia and Florence):

Sollecito sues judges
He asks three million for "responsibility" of judges

Sollecito [...]"now presents the bill to the judges: three million."[...]

Sollecito had initiated a claim for unjust detention which in February was denied. He has now sued, under the law on civil liability of judges, nine magistrates, among them public prosecutors, investigating judge (GIP), justices of the Assize Court of Appeal [of Florence] asking for compensation for having misrepresented the facts. The procedure is in Genoa. Writes the Genoese edition of La Repubblica. The last word is up to the judge Pietro Spera to whom the case has been entrusted.

Local jurisdiction in Genoa. "They were wrong, and they ruined my life, now got to pay" (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
By Marco Preve

No one knew that he had sued, based on the new law on civil liability of judges, nine of public and state prosecutors, preliminary investigation judges and judges of the Court of Assizes [of Perugia] and the Assize Court of Appeal [of Florence] asking for compensation - we are talking about a figure of around three million - for having misrepresented the facts, circumstances and evidence relating to the murder of Meredith Kercher.

The case is based in the Ligurian capital because the last judges to have convicted Sollecito are those of the Court of Appeal of Florence, and, for processes involving Tuscan magistrates, the competent court/tribunal is that of Genoa.

The Civil Liability Act (Law) specifies the grounds "for willful misconduct or gross negligence (grave error)" [of judges]. Only in the second case, the [popular] jurors/judges involved [in Sollecito's conviction(s)] will also be cited (subpoenaed). But the last word is up to the judge Pietro Spera to whom the case has been entrusted. Today, he will have to decide whether to engage in the lawsuit also the 12 jurors of the Court of Assizes of Perugia and those of the Court of Assizes of Appeal of Florence.

Formally, in the courtroom, has been cited "Presidenza del Consiglio" on behalf of the judges. To defend it will be the State Attorney Giuseppe Novaresi. If convicted, the State, after paying compensation, will seek redress in turn against individual PMs, investigating judges (GIPs) and [other] judges cited.

Among the main targets of Sollecito is Perugian prosecutor Giuliano Mignini who led the investigation.

The hour-long talk, which at times brought her to tears as she recalled her and her family’s ordeal, drew a standing ovation from the 300 lawyers.

Amanda Knox: How Prisons Use Cult Tactics to Brainwash Inmates Into Religion
By Amanda Knox

That was certainly the case in Capanne, the Italian prison where I was locked away between 2007 and 2011 for a crime I didn't commit. There, the only reliable, non-medicinal rehabilitation available to female prisoners was Mass, Bible study and a weekly social hour with a group of young Franciscan nuns and friars from Assisi. Otherwise, we were simply locked in our cells.

Amanda Knox: Donald Trump supported me when I was wrongly accused of murder. What do I owe him?
By Amanda Knox

The message was clear: Trump defended me in the past; how dare I not defend him now? Never mind that Trump doesn’t share my values. If I won’t endorse him, at the very least I should keep my “left-wing lunacies” to myself.

This conviction is both undemocratic and dangerous. Just as a person’s support of me should not be based upon my politics or identity, hinging instead on the fact of my innocence, so should my politics hinge on the merits of policy, not personal loyalty.

On 28 June the Supreme Court will examine the appeal lodged by Raffaele Sollecito's defense against the decision of the Florence Court of Appeal to dismiss the claim for compensation (500 thousand euros) for unjust imprisonment for almost four years in prison for the murder of Meredith Kercher, a crime for which he was definitively acquitted. The decision is expected on the same day.

Cassation: No Compensation for Raffaele Sollecito

No compensation for unjust imprisonment to Raffaele Sollecito. Thus has decided the Fourth Criminal Section of the Court of Cassation, rejecting the appeal with which the defenders of the young man asked to re-evaluate the compensation claim - equal to 516 thousand euros - already rejected by the Court of Appeal in Florence last February.

The Florence judges had dismissed the claim for compensation by highlighting the fact that Sollecito, in the early stages of the investigation, had been found to have engaged in "misleading" and "severely deceitful" conduct. It will take about a month to know the reasons behind today's decision of the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court denies compensation to Sollecito. "Inexplicable, as a result of this story, I cannot find a job"

A verdict that Sollecito called "inexplicable" speaking with his defender, lawyer Giulia Bongiorno. "If you still can’t find a job," he stressed, "it's as much as has happened to me. I'm still suffering the consequences of past years as an innocent in prison and I do not understand why this is not acknowledged."

Giulia Bongiorno noted the contradictory nature of the decision of the Supreme Court, "which, when they acquitted Amanda and Raffaele, spoke of serious contradictions." So, for consistency, observed the lawyer, "we expected a minimum of compensation," she told AdnKronos. "This obviously does not erase Raffaele's acquittal and I can say that it does not end there - assured Bongiorno - I intend to move forward in Europe because it seems to me that recognition of unjust imprisonment would be the right ending (epilogue)."

In rare L.A. appearance, Amanda Knox details the pain of prison, and life after
By Zohreen Adamjee

In a rare L.A. appearance, Knox confronted the image the world has painted of her - addressing a room full of lawyers who fight for the wrongly convicted.
...
The panel was [...] to promote Netflix's documentary and Knox's memoir, in which she also details the pain time in prison caused her.
...
"And I have to tell my story so that the echo of it can reach people....I just want to show that it's not this distant difficult to understand thing. It's a human thing that can happen to anyone at anytime. No one is safe, but we can understand it," said Knox.

Amanda Knox: Michelle Carter deserves sympathy and help, not prison
By Amanda Knox

The very fact that suicide is illegal reveals how self-harm confuses our sympathies. The suicide is his own victim, his own murderer. We naturally want to blame someone for the murder, but we’re reluctant to further condemn the victim. This emotional paradox makes it hard for us to find closure. But with Roy’s suicide, we have, in the person of Carter, another party to hold responsible. It’s much easier psychologically to reproach a villain than it is to hold in one’s mind the contradictory feelings we have about suicide.
...In our zeal to deflect blame, we insist on villainizing Carter because we want easy explanations, black-and-white reasons. We want to assign agency whenever something bad happens.
...It’s hard to feel sympathy for Michelle Carter. It’s also hard to feel sympathy for drug addicts or to understand obsessively suicidal adolescents. Even so, we have to try. Just because it’s hard to feel sympathy and understanding, that doesn’t mean it isn’t the right — and just — thing to do.

Knox seeks sympathy where none deserved
Joe Fitzgerald

...Amanda Knox is a repulsive wannabe newsmaker, not averse to hotly pursuing the spotlight even if it means splashing in the gutter.

Do you remember her? It’s obvious she wants to make sure you do.

Now, unwilling to fade from public view, she’s stumbled onto a surefire way to retain attention, urging sympathy for Michelle Carter, the merciless young woman who mocked and goaded Conrad Roy into taking his own life.
...
Now along comes Knox, maintaining, “(Carter) deserves the same sympathy.”

Amanda Knox Is in Love and Rebuilding Her Life 6 Years After Being Released from Italian Prison (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
By Jeff Truesdell

Now, six years after Knox’s homecoming, the subject of the Emmy-nominated Netflix documentary Amanda Knox tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue that she’s savoring the “normal-person” life she’s reclaimed, with a new love in her native Pacific Northwest — and she’s even planning a return next year to the Italian city where she lost her freedom.

“I’m not disappearing into oblivion,” says Knox, 30. “I have something to say.”
...
“My little sister is getting married this November, and I’m having a blast coming up with awesome ways to make her feel special about that really important decision in her life,” Knox says.

And while she and Robinson talk “all the time” about getting married and having children, they’ve deferred plans until after Knox’s sister, Deanna, 28 — who put her life on hold during Knox’s legal ordeal — has her time as a bride.

Why Amanda Knox Is Returning to Italy for the First Time Since Her Exoneration for Murder (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
By Jeff Truesdell

Six years after her release from Italian prison, Knox, 30, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue that she is preparing to go back and reclaim the city on her own terms.

“The only way that I’m going to come full circle is by physically, literally, coming full circle,” she says. “I know that Perugia is probably the least welcome place for me in the entire world. And that’s scary, but it also means a lot to me, not to be afraid of a place and see Perugia through my family’s eyes.”

How Two Filmmakers Spent 6 Years On Amanda Knox’s Case and Changed Minds About the Sensational Murder Mystery
By Jeff Truesdell

“We thought there was a story here that was about more than just Amanda and Raffaele’s story — that was about the way we all process truth and information … [and] the way we also form opinions and judgments about other people,” says director Brian McGinn.

“People were coming to conclusions based on how they felt, not based on objective fact,” says his fellow director, Rod Blackhurst. “We’re seeing that, of course, day in and day out now in almost every story that we’re reading or trying to figure out.”

Amanda Knox’s $3.8M from Her Book Deal Went to Pay Off Loans and Legal Fees from Her Italy Ordeal (VIDEO)
By Jeff Truesdell

In the small, rented Seattle home that Amanda Knox shares with her poet-novelist partner and three cats, small circles of blue paper taped to the wall above the couple’s side-by-side computers catalog their future projects together.

One bears the words, “Lady Justice,” the title of Knox’s next book, which she describes as “part memoir, part investigative journalism, looking at the greater forces that affected me as a woman going through the criminal justice system.”

Another ball is scribbled in magic marker with the words “Wrongful Conviction (TV Show),” referencing their idea for a reality-TV project about people caricatured by the media.

“So I look forward to that part of my life that I had always taken for granted growing up and then had to let go of in prison.”

How Did Being 'Foxy' Hurt Amanda Knox?
By Isabelle Kohn

A lot has changed for Amanda Knox since she came home in 2011. Her first order of business was to collect three cats, a highly educated and supportive partner, and a quiet suburban life away from the paparazzi and still-glaring public eye. Then she started writing. First, for her local newspaper Westside Seattle, then, a best-selling memoir and series of articles for Broadly focusing on how women experience the judicial system. She’s been writing a lot about women, actually. Knox has become something of an expert on gender bias and sexualization in court: why women falsely confess and the way they’re objectified in order to rationalize their guilt. She’s now in the beginning stages of writing another book on this very topic: how we vilify women with known associations with sex, how we subject them to misogynistic and unrealistic misrepresentation when they are accused of crimes.

Murdered Meredith Kercher's family condemn Amanda Knox over 'inopportune plans' to revisit Italian town where the British student was killed
By Stewart Paterson

But Frencesco Maresca, the Kercher family's lawyer, said Ms Knox is not welcome in Perugia.

'I believe Amanda Knox's choice to return is totally inopportune because the death of Meredith was very painful for Perugia and people there feel they have never had a satisfactory response from the Italian justice system,' he told The Telegraph.

'That is why Knox should think about her life without continuing to return to this sad affair from which she has been the only one to profit, both in terms of fame and money.'

A Decade Later: Amanda Knox Plans Her Return to the Scene of Meredith Kercher's Murder
By Barbie Latza Nadeau

Of course, the inevitable media circus surrounding her eventual return to Perugia—bids are already flying in by networks who want to cover the trip exclusively—will surely help those projects immensely.

It should come as no real surprise that someone whose adult life has played out inside a fishbowl under the media’s glare would choose essentially to invite the world along on her journey by announcing her return to the scene of the crime. Why should it be any other way?

Amanda Knox Wants To Return To Murder Scene In Italy
By Juliana Rose Pignataro

"A decade has passed. I've processed a lot in the meantime," she told People. "But this feels like the next step of the process. I'm no longer the bright-eyed girl who shows up with the best of intentions. I'm coming in fully aware of the context of what it's going to be like, but I look forward to it."
...
The prosecutor in the case, however, said that while he wasn't shocked by Knox's wish to return, he hoped it wouldn't be to commemorate the actual day of Kercher's death.

"That would send the wrong message," Guiliano Mignini told The Daily Beast.

Amanda Knox: Why We Love to Hate 'Trainwreck' Women
By Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox wrote:
I was struck by your observation that trainwrecks are expected to disappear. After I came home from Italy, I discovered that I, too, was expected to disappear, and to want to disappear. Some people thought, "After everything you've been through, why would you ever want to be in the public eye ever again?" They suggested that I change my name, and reassured me that in a few years I'd age out of recognition and wouldn't be a "hot property" anymore. That I could only be happy and safe in anonymity. That I couldn't take back my own narrative for any positive purpose. For instance, some readers will interpret the fact that I'm interviewing you as nothing more than another cry for attention. They won't see us as two thoughtful women talking about a cultural phenomenon with implications that touch the lives of both celebrities and everyday people who find themselves caught up in the court of public opinion and the criminal justice system.

Supreme Court, from Sollecito [only] lies and silences
Reasons for no compensation, but Bongiorno says 'don’t drop the curtain'

In the early stages of the investigation into the murder of Meredith Kercher, Raffaele Sollecito provided “false and contradictory statements”; his statements “found punctual denials in every respect”. And this had reinforced in the investigators "the prospect of his involvement" resulting in a decision to take him into custody as a precautionary measure. With this reasoning (or: for this reason), the Supreme Court rejected the claim for compensation for unjust detention / imprisonment, also denied on appeal [by the Court of Appeal of Florence - ed.], for the four years of imprisonment, suffered in the proceedings for the perpetration of the crime against the British student, in Perugia. At the end of which Sollecito was definitively acquitted.

"The curtain does not fall here," was the reply of lawyer Giulia Bongiorno, who announced appeal to the European Court. "It has been totally overlooked - she said - the annihilation of defensive guarantees and the circumstances in which those statements were made, which [RS's statements] were considered a decisive factor for the denial of compensation.”

Raffaele Sollecito will not get compensation for unjust detention: "Involved in lies and dishonesty"

Translation: Google, Microsoft + Guermantes
Read full translation: viewtopic.php?style=6&p=132125#p132125

The Court of Cassation motivates [sets forth the reasoning behind] the judgment which, on 28 June, rejected the claim for compensation brought by Raffaele Sollecito. The claim had already been denied by the Court of Appeal in Florence last January.
[...]
The Florence Court of Appeal dismissed the claim for compensation, holding that Sollecito, with his "seriously reckless" conduct, had compelled the investigators to impose the precautionary measure against him. If the young man had told the truth "right away, without contradiction," his procedural position would have been definitively different, "appearing probable that he would not even be investigated" or, in any case, "the cautionary needs would have been less serious." A conclusion shared by the Judges of the Fourth Criminal Division of the Supreme Court.
[...]
The reticence, the lies and the silence, the Supreme Court explains, "can be evaluated by the judge(s) deciding on compensation in terms of willful or gross negligence", and the same - we read in the judgment No. 42014 - applies "with regard to the alibi" identified [ascertained] "immediately [rapidly] as false".

The Supreme Court Motivations Report (Sentence No.42014, of June 28, 2017), explaining the reasons behind the rejection of Sollecito's compensation claim for unjust detention / imprisonment, has been published on the Il Momento Legislativo website, under the heading "Ingiusta Detenzione":

The fourth criminal section of the Court of Cassation with judgment no. 42014 of 28 June 2017, in the case of an application for compensation for unjust imprisonment, has dismissed the applicant's claim on the assumption that his suspicious, false and contradictory declarations, while having been legitimate defensive choices, had a negative impact and constituted the existence of a reason for the refusal of the recognition of the right to compensation, since with such behavior the subject contributed with serious or gross negligence to the implementation and continuation of the maximum precautionary measure [i.e., incarceration - ed.].
