Amanda Knox Speaks Out in Court

Though she won’t testify, Knox made a spontaneous declaration during an appeal hearing today, lashing out at her dubious accuser. Barbie Latza Nadeau reports from Italy.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/06/27/amanda-knox-appeal-hearing-raffaele-sollecito-waffles.html

Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito’s spontaneous statements to the Court at the June 27, 2011 court hearing
Amanda’s statement begins at the 5 min mark.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSHrTbD0xis

The words of Sollecito (June 27, 2011; after Guede’s testimony):

“I only wanted to make you try to realise. I know a bit about the case documentation and I know which declarations have been made. Rudy has never seen me in his life, not even glanced at me, and neither do I know him. I don’t know whether in some way he wanted this business which actually identifies me together with Amanda Knox.
I wanted to recall that Guede in his declarations to Giacomo Benedetti, during a chat when Rudy didn’t even know that he was being investigated, refers to a shadow which he cannot identify and says that Amanda Knox has absolutely nothing to do with it. He always talks of a shadow which might have been me. He says that he hears Amada’s voice but doesn’t see her. Finally, these shadows which the prosecution has materialized into Amanda and me, simply because we were arrested before him. The fact is that Amanda and I have been in this situation for nearly four years and fighting against shadows. They have destroyed my life and hers too in a devious and absurd way, because we are in the same state. What should I not defend myself from if I don’t respond to this fellow.”


The declaration of Amanda Knox (June 27, 2011; after Guede’s testimony):

“The only times that Rudy, Raffaele and I have been together in the same place is in a court of law. I am really shocked and anguished because of these declarations because he knows that we were not there, he knows that we had nothing to do with it. I do not know what happened that evening. I would have liked to say to him, ”Look, mistakes can first be put right by telling the truth.”

Amanda Knox writes video script for band

U.S. student Amanda Knox, convicted in Italy for the murder of her British roommate, has written a music video script for a band based near her prison.
Knox reportedly sent the script in English and Italian to the band via mail. Hands of Time said the script showed "considerable artistic quality" and decided to use it for their song "The Mistral Blows."
Knox, 24, is currently in the process of appealing her case in Perugia.

Amanda Knox called "she-devil" in court

On Monday gruesome photos of Kercher's body were shown in court. They showed the semi-naked body of the 21-year-old victim, her face and throat covered in blood. Silence fell on the courtroom. Knox glanced at one point, but mainly seemed to keep her head down while the graphic images were being shown. A lawyer for the Kercher family said Monday he was showing the photos to remind the court that "we're not in a TV show."

Amanda Knox Is an Innocent Girl, Not a Monster, Say Her Lawyers

The jury appeared captivated by the Knox lawyer's closing arguments. On more than one occasion, the head judge nodded, something of a first. Knox herself is expected to give a statement Monday during closing arguments.

Lawyers argue evidence in Knox murder trial
CNN video (Paula Newton reporting from Perugia)

Concluding an emotional appearance, he [Ghirga] appealed to the jury to put themselves in the shoes of Knox's family -- a counterpoise to the words of appeals court prosecutor Giancarlo Costagliola, who asked the jury to put themselves in the shoes of Kercher's family at the start of the closing arguments a week ago.

The "clan Knox" -- as Knox's family have been referred to -- are not part of some rumored U.S. conspiracy to put pressure on the Italian courts to release her, Ghirga said. Rather, "they are parents and they deserve respect."

Main points of the verdict (from Il Messaggero):

“In the name of the Italian people, the Assize Court of Appeal in Perugia ... in partial reform of the judgment pronounced on 4 to 5 December 2009 by the Assize Court of First Instance of Perugia, against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito… - declares Amanda Knox guilty of the crime of calunnia [slander] (in detriment of Patrick Lumumba, ed) ... and sentences her to three years in prison (...); - absolves both defendants of the crimes contested in chapters A (murder, ed), B (knife carrying), C (sexual assault) and D (theft) [“per non aver commesso il fatto”] for not having committed the crime and the crime of which chapter E (simulation of crime) [“perchè il fatto non sussiste”] because the fact was not committed – orders the immediate release of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito if are not held for other reason.”

Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellmann calls for the respect of the sentence: "If I were the prosecutors I would have done exactly the same thing: they had more than enough elements to investigate these two young people." But the British press continues to attack the Italian justice system

Knox: I couldn't look at Meredith death photos

LONDON EVENING STANDARD

Amanda Knox return to Seattle: as it happened

Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellman: "Certainly Rudy Guede... I won't say he's the only one to know... [Knox and Sollecito were] two kids barely in their 20s, normal, like so many of today's [youth]. Indeed, they were polite, composed, put to the test and matured by this kind of experience. I felt emotion because they are two young people who suffered, justly or unjustly. I repeat, we can never say with certainty. [Kercher's family has] all my human compassion. But we cannot assign responsibility [for a crime] with such a high penalty solely to ease the suffering of these parents."

Amanda Knox judge says she may have 'been responsible' after all

The judge who presided at the trial of Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, has reportedly said they may be guilty after all.

Speaking just two days after he and his fellow judges handed down a full acquittal on appeal, Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellmann, said the court's verdict "is the result of the truth that was created in the proceedings. But the real truth may be different. They may be responsible, but the evidence is not there."

Networks Knox heads

Some network producers have doubled as baby sitters to Amanda Knox’s half-sisters while courting the family of the former foreign-exchange student, who was wrongfully convicted of murder, for exclusive interviews after the trial. An industry source said Knox’s father, Curt, was nervous about leaving his 13- and 16-year-old daughters alone at their residence outside Perugia, Italy, and allowed producers to look after the girls while he was in court. Elizabeth Vargas’ producer, Nikki Battiste, who was eager to win the first interview for ABC, was dubbed “the baby sitter” by rival networks for “coddling” the girls, taking them shopping and to cafes.

Curt Knox Disputes ‘Babysitting’ Article In Letter to New York Post

In a letter sent to the New York Post and obtained by TVNewser, Amanda Knox‘s father Curt Knox disputes what was written in Page Six today about news organizations allegedly “babysitting” his two youngest daughters.

Specifically, Knox argues that while ABC News provided its producer’s hotel room for his daughters to stay in during the trial, at no time did the producer “babysit” the children. He writes that a CBS News producer also provided a hotel room for them to stay in during the day (a claim CBS denies, below), and that an NBC News producer offered them a room to use if they needed one...

Mauro Chialli was one of eight jurors who ordered Ms Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito be freed after acquitting them of charges they sexually assaulted and murdered Meredith Kercher in 2007.[...]''I saw the faces of these two kids and they couldn't bluff. They didn't bluff. My point of view is that these kids weren't guilty. They weren't there,'' he said.

Amanda should pay damages to Lumumba: lawyer’s appeal to Hillary Clinton

The lawyer Carlo Pacelli appeals to the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to compensate Patrick Lumumba.

Translation:

Perugia, October 13, 2011 - The lawyer Carlo Pacelli appeals to the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to compensate Patrick Lumumba.

The girl in Seattle, on appeal by the prosecution acquitted of murdering Meredith Kercher, was sentenced to three years in prison for slandering the Congolese musician. Lumumba was in fact involved in the investigation based on what Knox told investigators about recognizing him, however, he was completely unrelated to the crime and then acquitted. The Appellate Court of Assizes of Perugia, confirming the sentence for slander, has determined that Knox compensate the musician, in a civil postponing the quantification of the damage. The U.S. will also pay legal fees for more than 60 000 euros.

The lawyer Pacelli, recalling the appreciation expressed by the Secretary of State for the sentence of the second degree, has sent a letter to Clinton through the U.S. embassy in Italy. The satisfaction with the outcome of the process, according to the lawyer Pacelli, "must be duly followed by paying the actual damages suffered by Lumumba. I appeal to you because of your interest in Amanda Knox to compensate Patrick Lumumba.

"[Barnett will] represent her in discussions with various book publishers who have expressed an interest in Amanda writing a book," David Marriott, the Seattle public relations specialist hired by the Knox family during her trial told CNN by e-mail. "Mr. Barnett will also assist Amanda and her family in evaluating other opportunities as well."


[Sharlene] Martin said that Sollecito's book will be a memoir and will cover several aspects of his life, not just the four-year saga in Perugia, Italy. Martin said they're currently looking for American writers who can also speak with Sollecito in Italian to work on the book.

Sollecito on the acquittal ruling for the murder of Meredith Kercher

First Christmas at home for the student from Puglia, imprisoned for 4 years for the murder of Perugia. Exclusive Interview Telenorba 7

Milan, December 22 (TMNews) - After four years in prison, Raffaele Sollecito is about to celebrate his first Christmas as a free man. In an exclusive interview that airs tomorrow on Telenorba 7 and TgNorba24, the young Apulian acquitted along with Amanda Knox for the murder of Meredith Kercher tells of his feelings and discusses the reasons for the appeal sentence.”The ruling is clear and precise, has swept away all the ghosts," said Sollecito in a half-hour interview with TgNorba24 director Enzo Magistà, broadcast tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 23, at 23:15 on Telenorba 7 and TgNorba24.

Then Sollecito talked about his expectations for his first Christmas with the family after 4 years, "It will not be routine - he said - I missed Christmas a lot and this year I want to taste it again, I want to live it intensely with my family." "I tried to give gifts that can be appreciated and useful - still - but I think the most important thing is the gesture, evidence of having thought of a person." Raffaele Sollecito also sent good wishes to Amanda. "We do not communicate directly - he explains - we do it through our family. And certainly through them we will exchange Christmas greetings."

Digital Age - Did the Social Media Help Convict Amanda Knox? - Nina Burleigh

Uploaded by jzirin1 on Jan 23, 2012

Journalist Nina Burleigh followed the media saturated Amanda Knox case from start to finish. She concludes that Knox' Italian murder conviction, later overturned on appeal, was a total miscarriage of justice. She tells Jim Zirin that Knox was unfairly incriminated by a weirdly superstitious prosecutor, Italian fantasies about sexuality and beautiful women, as well as ambiguous posts Knox and her boyfriend made on the Web.

Meredith, record costs for 3d murder animation
182 thousand euros for reconstruction requested by the prosecution
By Erika Pontini

The Prosecutor’s Office reminds everyone that the film was not put at the disposal of the parties (it was never deposited into the court records, but only used as technical support), exactly so as to avoid non-judicial uses of it, like TV transmissions and the “entertainment-isation” of the murder. Just recently, American TV had made a request, receiving a curt “No” from the Office."


...Which makes it clear that what happened was that, instead, the same Todi company that created a movie - as stated in the bill [invoice] - had also created a database and entered all the information from the trial process into it: the evidence from wiretaps, from photographs of the crime scene to the trial files. The company states that the fee does not refer only to the production of the movie. It was in fact - underlines the Nventa Ltd. - "a tool for analyzing the court records with its inclusion within the same database of all the files, as an analysis tool for prosecutors." This work lasted about nine months - the company said - and eight technicians had been engaged in the project, with continuous updates on the facts emerging gradually from the [trial] hearings, to get to the final version of the movie.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General is working on preparing the appeal against the acquittal of Amanda and Raffaele. The deadline expires in mid-February but prosecutors intend to file the request within a few days in Piazza Cavour.

Amanda Knox Appeals Slander Conviction
By Nikki Battiste

"Dalla Vedova added that the appeals court stated in their motivation -the reasoning behind their decision to acquit Knox - that "something went wrong" during Knox's interrogation.
"She has been acquitted of murder, and she should be acquitted of slander," Dalla Vedova said."

Amanda Knox Appeals Slander Conviction
By Barbie Latza Nadeau

In the 40-page appellate document obtained by The Daily Beast, Knox’s lawyers argue that the false accusation was the product of “intense pressure” that bordered on “abuse” against the young American. That pressure, they say, caused her to inadvertently accuse Lumumba of the crime. Her incarceration and subsequent trauma then prohibited her from self-correcting her error, according to the document, hence Lumumba's two weeks in jail. For these reasons, Knox’s lawyers believe the slander conviction should also be overturned.

Amanda Knox shops a memoir
The American, who was freed from an Italian prison four months ago, could get a seven-figure payday for her story.
By Matthew Flamm

Amanda Knox, freed from an Italian prison just four months ago, may be one step closer to paying off her family's massive legal bills.

An auction for her memoir about her long ordeal following the murder of her roommate in 2007 started Friday, according to an industry source. Ms. Knox visited publishers several weeks ago with her agent, Washington, D.C., power lawyer Robert Barnett.

And that brings some difficult questions: do book-buying Americans see Ms. Knox as a sympathetic figure? And if the book commands a seven-figure advance, as is widely expected, will it be worth it?

“I think it’s a huge gamble for somebody,” said one publisher who did not intend to bid on the book and declined to be named because the auction was taking place privately. “It’s not like she has been exonerated in a clear and definitive way.”

Amanda Knox memoirs bidding war breaks out
by Rosa Prince

In a meeting with potential publishers, Knox was said to be self-assured and intelligent, quoting her favourite novels and describing her dreams of becoming a writer as she promised to deliver the truth about the death of Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy, five years ago.

The book, she is said to have disclosed, would provide a faithful account of the events leading up to and following the murder of Kercher, who was 21 when she was found with her throat cut after what prosecutors described as a sex game that went wrong.

Can Amanda Knox Save the Book Business?

Nonetheless, publicity is what will make or break the book. Buyers will make their purchasing decision based upon their encounter with Ms. Knox through various media outlets. How Amanda Knox comes off on 60 Minutes and the Today Show, in newspaper features and radio interviews will signal to readers whether they want to buy the book or not. No one will come upon her through her prose.

Buyers on this scale are not readers so much as participants. If her story resonates, you join Team Amanda. The price of admission is buying her book. The book is a talisman, not a vehicle.

Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito's acquittal challenged by prosecutors
Italian prosecutors appeal against the verdict that cleared Knox and Sollecito of Meredith Kercher's murder in Perugia
by Tom Kington

The supreme court will not reconsider evidence and cannot convict but will examine whether correct legal procedures have been followed until now. Should it decide procedures have been violated, the court will order a retrial.

Prosecutors have previously questioned whether the appeal court was within its rights to order the review of DNA evidence that proved crucial to the acquittal.

"Hypothetically speaking, should there be a new hearing, it would be held in Florence," said Carlo dalla Vedova, a lawyer representing Knox, who moved back to her home town in Seattle after serving four years in jail in Perugia.

"But I doubt the supreme court will rule before the end of 2012. Then you would need months to fix a new hearing and neither the supreme court nor the court in Florence could order the defendants to be taken into custody before a final verdict, which would be three to four years from now," he said.

Asked if Knox could be extradited from the US should a new trial find her guilty, Dalla Vedova said: "There is an extradition treaty between Italy and the US which is automatic for Italian citizens, but in the case of US citizens you would need approval from the US government.

Meredith Kercher family launch appeal against Knox's acquittal
Amid book deal hoo-ha, lawyers in Florence launch legal bid to overturn Knox and Sollecito acquittal

By Andrea Vogt

"We are petitioning against the decision of the Court of Appeals of Perugia and are optimistic it will be admitted to the Court of Cassation for review," said Kercher family lawyer Francesco Maresca in Florence. Prosecutor General Giovanni Galati filed the same appeal – or ‘recourse’, to be more accurate - in Perugia, amid a throng of reporters.

The 112-page document focuses on ten points of law, but mainly focuses on a perceived misapplication of reasonable doubt and the controversial decision by the appeals court to allow an independent review of just two contested pieces of forensic evidence.

More on the contents of the prosecution's appeal document:

For the two judges [Giovanni Galati and Giancarlo Costagliola] the appeal process has been characterized by 'anomaly' of the first words of the Judge that the only fact that was "very certain and undisputed" was the discovery of Kercher's body. "Affirmation serious for a 'third judge'," "baffling in itself," reads the appeal. "A resounding anticipation of judgment", for the Prosecutor General Galati. According to the Prosecutor General, the Court has set itself not as an appellate body, "but as a sort of alternate Judge of First Instance, whose job was to make a decision on the facts, without even having to consider the judgment of first instance". "As if it were to decide - emphasizes Costagliola - scratch murder. A total flattening of prosecution's position."

The first-level conviction verdict was “complete and thorough” while the verdict of the second-level is “contradictory and illogical”. For this reason, the General Prosecution of Perugia asks the Cassation to revoke or invalidate it.
“We are still extremely convinced that Amanda and Raffaele are co-perpetrators of the murder of Meredith Kercher” said the Chief Prosecutor of Perugia, Giovanni Galati and the Deputy Chief Prosecutor, Giancarlo Costagliola.

Her US lawyer, Theodore Simon, also was not surprised by the appeal.

"While the prosecution, as expected, has appealed, very little has changed.

Amanda Knox Verdict Appealed: Will She Go Back to Italy?

Perugia prosecutors have also asked the high court to uphold Knox’s remaining conviction for slander, for which she was sentenced to three years in prison. That conviction was upheld in last October’s appellate ruling, and Knox’s attorneys launched their own appeal against that ruling last week.
[...]
It is no coincidence that Knox’s handlers in Seattle and her literary agent in New York have put her memoirs on the auction block at the exact moment the deadline to appeal came due in Italy. By riding a new wave of interest in the case, they are sure to up ante for her yet-to-be written book, which is reported to start only with her arrest and imprisonment for Kercher’s murder. She is not expected to write about the night of the crime or the morning after.

Amanda Knox has reportedly signed a nearly $4 million book deal with HarperCollins to tell the story of her conviction and subsequent acquittal in the stabbing death of her British roommate in Italy.

The deal for the 24-year-old American student's memoir followed a days-long heated auction among publishing houses, The New York Times reported, citing people familiar with the negotiations.

Robert B. Barnett, a Washington lawyer known for representing high-profile authors, brokered the deal.

HarperCollins, meanwhile, will hope to recoup some of its huge advance in television deals and newspaper serialisations.

A positive balance sheet is far from guaranteed, however. “I think it’s very risky money,” says Ed Victor, the London-based literary agent whose clients range from Keith Richards to Alastair Campbell and Frederick Forsyth. “But all advances at that level are risky. A lot will depend on whom they hire as the collaborator. It has to be written well.”

Giulia Bongiorno is one of the most hated people in Italy. That's saying a lot in a nation where former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi recently resigned after years of scandal (including allegations of orgies and underage prostitutes). But as the lawyer for Raffaele Sollecito, then boyfriend of American exchange student Amanda Knox, Bongiorno was instrumental in the defense that, last October, helped overturn the pair's convictions for the grisly 2007 slaying of Knox's roommate, Meredith Kercher — a turn of events that outraged many Italians. "The prosecution portrayed Amanda as ruthless and manipulative," Bongiorno says. "That picture is false."

Raffaele Sollecito, former Amanda Knox beau, heads to Seattle for job interview

Turns out, Knox's ex-beau is headed to Seattle for job prospects -- and to thank a handful of supporters. This according to the West Seattle Herald:

Raffaele Sollecito, the former Italian boyfriend of West Seattle-raised Amanda Knox, is expected to interview with an Eastside tech company, possibly Microsoft, this Friday, and to visit about a half-dozen supporters at a residence near Bellevue.

He has been spotted this week in the Los Angeles area.

Four sources tell the West Seattle Herald that Sollecito, 27, who is three years older than Knox, plans to thank some of his key supporters in Seattle who rooted both for him and Knox during their nearly four years spent in an Italian prison.

Raffaele Sollecito has book deal

AP National Writer

Amanda Knox's former boyfriend will be the first to tell about the Italian murder case that made them famous worldwide.

Raffaele Sollecito has a deal with Simon & Schuster's Gallery Books for a book scheduled to come out this fall. Knox's memoir is due next year.

The publisher announced Thursday that "Presumed Guilty: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox" would cover his relationship with the U.S. exchange student, their arrests and imprisonment in Italy over the death of Knox's roommate and their eventual release last fall after the convictions were overturned.

Gallery spokeswoman Jennifer Robinson said Sollecito would collaborate on the book with Andrew Gumbel, an award-winning British journalist and author whose books include "Steal This Vote" and the upcoming "Oklahoma City," about the 1995 bombing.

Amanda Knox has a book deal; now, so does her former lover Raffaele Sollecito.
Knox is now back home and working on a book for Harper Collins, for which she received $4 million back in February. It is not known how much Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books paid for her ex-beau’s book, a deal on which the Associated Press first reported.

A Knox family source revealed: "Rafaelle has been in the US for some time now. Why wouldn't he meet Amanda? They still talk and they are still friends." But Amanda's new boyfriend, musician James Terrano, 24, is understood to be unhappy about Raffaele's arrival.

It is believed the Italian is plotting a permanent move to America. His book, Presumed Guilty: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox, is being released later this year.

Amanda Knox parents' trial delayed, key witnesses don't show
by TERESA YUAN

Key witnesses failed to show up Friday for the slander trial of Amanda Knox’s parents, NBC News reports, causing the judge to delay the trial until next year.
Five police officers who were expected to testify for the prosecution against Curt Knox and Edda Mellas were not in court. They were reportedly busy dealing with other police matters.
The judge accepted the reason and postponed the hearing until January 24, 2013.

Amanda Knox May 'Appear' in Italian Court
By Nikki Battiste

Amanda Knox may appear in an Italian courtroom again.
But this time, Italians and the press will only get to see her on a screen, via video conference from Seattle, if she testifies in the defamation case against her parents.

Knox is the only witness expected to defend her parents, Curt Knox and Edda Mellas, who are charged with defaming five police officers with the Perugia crime squad.
"Amanda will probably not come back to Italy,'' said Carlo Dalla Vedova, her attorney. "If she has to testify, she will probably do so via video conference, which is allowed."

Kercher father's book released

...Entitled Meredith: Our Daughter's Murder and the Heartbreaking Quest for the Truth, John Kercher's account of his loss comes six months after Amanda Knox walked free from prison in Italy, acquitted of the crime...

...While Knox's book promises a "full and unflinching account of the events that led to her arrest in Perugia and her struggles with the complexities of the Italian judicial system," Mr Kercher's will celebrate his daughter's life.

The 304-page work is also billed as "a father's story of losing a beloved daughter, and the first account of the torment the family have suffered and their ongoing quest for justice"...

Meredith: Our Daughter's Murder and the Heartbreaking Quest for the Truth [Paperback]
John Kercher (Author)

Book Description
Publication Date: April 26, 2012
'I hadn't been able to get through to Meredith on her mobile, which was very unusual, but I tried to keep calm by telling myself the victim couldn't possibly be Meredith. The call eventually came from the foreign desk of the Mirror newspaper, from a young girl I hadn't spoken to before. That call ended my world as I knew it. Nervously, she told me that they had a name for the girl. I asked for it, but she was reluctant to tell me. She seemed nervous, and I had to persuade her to release the name. I shall never forget her words. "The name going round Italy is Meredith." I dropped the phone. I didn't believe it. Not my beautiful Meredith.' Meredith Kercher was tragically murdered in November 2007, in Perugia, Italy. Since then, her murder and the subsequent trial have been a source of constant intrigue and speculation for media all around the world, with the spotlight famously focusing on the accused, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. Now, Meredith's father John speaks out for the first time and tell the world about the beautiful daughter that they so tragically lost. The book is a celebration of Meredith's life. It is also a father's story of losing a beloved daughter, and is the family's first account of the torment they have suffered since her murder four years ago and their ongoing quest for justice.

Publisher Heyne defends publication of Kachelmann's book (in German)

Translation, courtesy of Nell:

Another fought over project is the autobiography of former American exchange student Amanda Knox that will be released in Germany next year by publisher Droemer Knaur. Publisher Hans-Peter Übleis told FOCUS that whilst negotiating with publishers in the U.S. he had secured the rights for a nearly six-figure sum. Knox’s story is ambiguous. “As always fates are interesting if they don’t conform with the norm.” He doesn’t shy away from taking sides with the release [of the book], says Übleis. “If the presumption of innocence applies in court, it should apply before the bookseller as well.”
Amanda Knox was acquitted in 2011 of the charge of having murdered a fellow student in Italy in 2007.

What a Rollercoaster!
By Paul Stenning

Yes folks, I can now reveal I was in the frame for being the ghostwriter for Amanda Knox's autobiography, for which she recently signed a six-figure deal with Harper Collins.
Overwhelmingly, everyone I have spoken to feel that it has been a blessing not to be chosen for this work - too controversial (perhaps even for me) and too emotionally fraught. It's a very difficult case and to have to approach a memoir from the point of view of a person considered by many to be guilty despite her legally confirmed innocence, is a potential minefield. I have to agree with my friends and associates who think it might be for the best. Besides, she lives in Seattle and I don't like the rain. That, in fact, might be one of the best reasons I was not the chosen one in the end.

Meredith Kercher's father makes plea to her murderer

The father of Meredith Kercher, who was murdered in Perugia, Italy, has appealed to her killer to finally "come clean" about what happened.

John Kercher says Rudy Guede "has nothing to lose" as the only person to be jailed for sexually assaulting and killing the Leeds University student.

Mr Kercher, of London, believes there were others involved in the murder.

Mr Kercher, 69, from Croydon, south London, believes there "had to be" more than one killer involved - and does not seem to think the evidence points to a "random" culprit.

"They say Meredith was killed in front of her wardrobe in her room and then the body was moved across the floor and covered with a duvet," he said.

"Why would you do that if you're just a random killer?"

Now, in a further embarrassment to Ms Comodi and Mr Mignini, both of whom staked their reputation on the case, the Umbria audit court prosecutor Agostino Chiappiniello has said he suspects the two of inappropriately spending €182,000 (£148,000) on a crude and cartoonish 20-minute video, which purports to show events leading up to and including the brutal slaying. It was shown during the original 2009 trial, which saw Ms Knox jailed for 26 years and Mr Sollecito for 25 years.

Amanda Knox voted one of sexiest women in world

The family of murdered British student Meredith Kercher will today learn that the woman once convicted of her murder has been voted one of the sexiest women in the world.
Amanda Knox was placed 92 in Maxim magazine’s Hot 100, a year after being cleared of Meredith’s murder in Perugia, Italy, where she was studying at the time of her killing in 2007.
It comes after Meredith’s father John (69) suffered two suspected strokes since his daughter was murdered.
Knox was 11 places behind Pippa Middleton (28) who came in number at 81 with the winner, voted for by US voters being Israeli model Bar Refaeli.

It was supposed to include exclusive clips of the girl from Seattle in one of her rare moments of joy during the detention period in Perugia, at one of the band’s jail concerts.

Knox, Amanda. Untitled Memoir. Harper: HarperCollins. Jan. 2013. 384p. ISBN 9780062217202. $28.99. MEMOIR

In November 2007, then 20-year-old Knox, an American studying in Perugia, Italy, was arrested for the gruesome murder of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, resulting in sensationalist news coverage worldwide. After a deeply polarizing trial, she was convicted and jailed (along with then Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito and Ivory Coast drifter Rudy Guede) and served until 2011, when an appeals court overturned the conviction and freed her. Here, she draws on journals she kept throughout her ordeal to give us her side of the story: her trial, her unreasonable treatment by the Italian police, her time in jail, and the relentless media scrutiny. An undoubtedly unsettling and personal book that will attract many readers; with a one-day laydown on January 8 and a 750,000-copy first printing.

Judge: Breaking rules to ensure justice for Knox
by Phil Ferolito

King County Superior Court Judge Michael Heavey, who became a staunch defender of American Amanda Knox from the bench, said in a speech Thursday in Yakima that he was willing to break a few rules in order to see justice served.

Standing in front of a large crowd at the Yakima Convention Center, he told Downtown Rotary members how he was compelled to support wrongfully convicted murder suspect Knox from his Superior Court office, and that despite allegations of misconduct for doing so, he did the right thing.

Book review:
‘A Death in Italy: The Definitive Account of the Amanda Knox Case,’ by John Follain
By Patrick Anderson

The British journalist John Follain has drawn upon the transcripts of Knox’s lengthy trial and hundreds of interviews to give what may be the definitive account of the case. It’s an ugly, confusing story but one he relates with clarity, compassion and a wealth of fascinating detail. Still, many readers may finish his book with profound doubts about the case.

Raffaele Sollecito, Amanda Knox's Ex-Boyfriend, Maintains Innocence In New Book
By Gene Johnson, Associated Press

Raffaele Sollecito, whose budding love affair with American exchange student Amanda Knox helped land him in an Italian prison for four years, maintains the couple's innocence in a new book but acknowledges that their sometimes bizarre behavior after her roommate's killing gave police reason for suspicion.
...
Sollecito's book, "Honor Bound," is due out Sept. 18. The Associated Press purchased a copy Tuesday.
In it, he describes how the early days of their relationship became a nightmare: the horror of Kercher's slaying; the misunderstandings that swept them up in the case; their tabloid portrayals as two suspects unrecognizable to themselves.

Amanda Knox's behaviour was 'odd', admits Raffaele Sollecito
By Nick Squires

THE TELEGRAPH

September 12, 2012 (cont.)

"Fumai marijuana con Amanda
mi fa rabbia non ricordare"


"I smoked marijuana with Amanda;
it makes me angry not to remember "


Confessions of Raffaele Sollecito in the book which will be released on September 18 in the U.S.. The young man, convicted and later acquitted along with his girlfriend at the time for the murder of Meredith Kercher, recalls the "great waves of indignation and a nagging sense of guilt" to have a hazyy memory of the night of the killing, because of drug use.


Francesco Sollecito:

"The book that my son wrote on his story - said the boy's father, Francesco - released only in the United States and Raffaele is there for the latest stuff and the official presentation. For the moment, an edition in Italy is not planned or an Italian translation. Well, I do not know the contents of the book - said the boy's father - and I do not know if Raffaele really wrote that on the night of the murder of Meredith he and Amanda were smoking marijuana in his home in Perugia. Anyway, it seems an understatement to highlight, and, anyway, even if that were the case, this shows that Raffaele and Amanda were doing other things while the poor girl was being killed."


Raffaele, who after acquittal resumed his university studies in Verona, will return to Italy later this month to start attending classes. "To my knowledge, Raffaele has not met Amanda during his stay in the United States, but I know that they talk to each other regularly." Amanda's book will be released next spring, close to the date of the hearing before the Supreme Court, scheduled for 25 March. "We look forward to the ruling of the Supreme Court."

Amanda Knox & former boyfriend Sollecito: 1st year of freedom nears; Italian journalist remains supportive
By Steve Shay

THE WEST SEATTLE HERALD

September 15, 2012

Raffaele Sollecito: 'I'm unsure where Amanda Knox was that night'
By Nick Squires and Barbara McMahon

In Honour Bound: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox, he questions whether she knew more about the murder than she revealed and also casts doubt on her key alibi – that on the night of the killing she was in his apartment, watching a film and making love.
Mr Sollecito, a computer studies graduate, chastises himself for having smoked so much marijuana that he could not give detectives a clear account of what he and his new girlfriend had been doing the night before.
"My poor memory seemed a ridiculous reason to throw me into an isolation cell and accuse me of involvement in the crime," he writes in the book, to be published by Simon & Schuster in the US on Tuesday.
"If the problem was with Amanda and the things she might or might not have done outside the house - assuming she left at all – why not focus the investigation on her?"
"Maybe she knew something. Maybe there was something she hadn't told me. But please, I thought, leave me out of it."
...
Mr Sollecito acknowledges in the book that they had "no real alibi the night of November 1 except each other."

The co-author of a new book about the Amanda Knox murder case says her former boyfriend's commitment to her eventually helped set both of them free.

Meredith case: Secret negotiations with the prosecutor? Mignini denies it and announces legal action

Translation: Jools

The public prosecutor of Perugia, [Giuliano] Mignini, has denied the hypothesis of the “secret deal to frame Amanda” contained in Raffaele Sollecito’s book “Honor Bound” released in the United States of America.

Giuliano Mignini, Perugia’s pm, “categorically” denies any notion of a secret deal with some family members of Raffaele Sollecito in the process for the murder of the English student Meredith Kercher. This is the magistrate of Perugia response to what was written by the young man in the book “Honor Bound” published in the USA and reported today by La Stampa.

In the book written by Sollecito, together with the English journalist Andrew Gumble, it is said that during the procedure of First Instance on the murder of Meredith, there was an alleged secret negotiation that sees the public prosecutor Mignini convey, through intermediaries, to the family of Raffaele Sollecito, an offer of a more lenient punishment if the co-defendant [RS] had corroborated the accusation of the murder charge against Amanda Knox.

Finally Mignini, without going into the details of the case, in conclusion confirmed to Ansa that “I reserve the right to take all legal actions”.

Translation: Jools

The Defence distanced himself - Even Luca Maori the first lawyer to take up the defense of Sollecito, later assisted by his colleague Giulia Bongiorno, firmly rejects to ever hearing talks of these deals. Maori says: “if it were true and the two lawyers being referred to in the book were known, these people would have been reported and disciplinary action taken against them”.

But he wouldn't do it. Sollecito said, "The truth is more important."

Amanda Knox's Ex Describes Going To Murder Trial: Worried Amanda Would Put Her Foot In Her Mouth

"We had to worry about Amanda taking the stand. Her lawyers decided that the best way to refute the stories about her wayward personality was to have the court take a good, hard look at her up close," Raffaele wrote in Honor Bound: My Journey To Hell And Back With Amanda Knox.

"But my lawyers were deeply concerned she would put her foot in her mouth. If she deviated even one iota from the version of events we now broadly agreed on, it could mean a life sentence for both of us."

Interview with Andrew Gumbel, Sollecito ghost writer:

Andrew, how’d you land the ghostwriting job with Raffaele?

After Amanda Knox and Raffaele were released last October, it dawned on me that it would an ideal job for me to be Amanda’s ghostwriter. I’m British and lived in Italy and have written extensively about criminal justice and now I’m in the U.S. on the West Coast. So I reached out to contacts. Nothing happened. Then Sharlene Martin, Raffaele’s agent, put a notice on a list serve for literary agents and a friend saw it. I got the job.

Meredith Kercher scholarship set up at Perugia University
By Nick Squires

The scholarship will be available to British students who want to study at Perugia's University for Foreigners, which is well known for its Italian language and art courses.

Candidates for the scholarship will be chosen by the Italian embassy in London.

The announcement of the scholarship comes ahead of the fifth anniversary of Miss Kercher's murder, which happened on Nov 1, 2007.

"The city wants to honour Meredith, whose memory is now inextricably linked with Perugia, so it is right to have a scholarship in her name," said Wladimiro Boccali, the mayor.

Cosmopolitan's Awards Countdown

By Louise Court, Editor of the UK Cosmopolitan Magazine

This morning I was up at 5am to sit on the Daybreak sofa with Stephanie Kercher, my Ultimate Editor's Choice winner. Five years ago this week, Stephanie's sister Meredith was brutally murdered while studying in Perugia, Italy. I was inspired by Stephanie's tremendous dignity and courage throughout her ordeal. She lost her sister in the cruelest way imaginable and gave up everything to support her family and liaise with the police and authorities. She's been involved in setting up a fund to help their fight for justice and other families who, god forbid, find themselves in similar situations. Stephanie's an amazing woman.

Stephanie Kercher dedicates award to her murdered sister

By Katie Begley

Stephanie paid tribute to the student as she picked up a gong at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards.

The 29-year-old said: “It’s an honour to be nominated for this award and I dedicate it to Mez, I’m doing it for her.

“We still miss Mez terribly. We just have to keep going and be positive."

“We’re still very close as a family. We’re lucky we’ve got a lot of Mez’s friends who are still in contact. So it’s being able to keep Mez’s memory alive and remember all the happy times.”

Ultimate Editor's Choice: Stephanie Kercher

By Rosie Mullender

When I first met Stephanie Kercher, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Her sister, Meredith, was brutally murdered in Perugia, Italy, five years ago, and having lived in the glare of the media throughout the high-profile trial that followed, she had, understandably, shunned interviews with the press.

But with the fifth anniversary of Meredith’s death looming, and Stephanie’s decision to launch a fund to help her parents financially as their fight for justice continues, she agreed to meet me to talk about her story and our Ultimate Women of the Year Awards.

Perugia university to hold Nov 1 mass to commemorate Kercher
British student murdered exactly five years ago

(ANSA) - Perugia, October 31 - The university of Perugia is holding a mass on Thursday to commemorate the five-year anniversary of the slaying of British student Meredith Kercher, who was found murdered on November 2, 2007 in her home in the Umbrian city where she was studying.

''It remains a great wound in citizens' consciences'', Father Bromuri told ANSA. ''It is a dark spot and a loss that we are unable to rationalize, to find a logical reason for''.

His words were echoed by Perugia Mayor Wladimiro Boccali, who said ''the anniversary of the slaying reopens a wound that had never actually healed''.

Perugia student remembered

Many Perugians are still furious that justice has not been served five years after Meredith’s death — and consider the sordid affair to be unfinished business.

Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito had their 26 and 25-year jail terms overturned last year while Ivory Coast-born drifter Rudy Guede is serving a 16-year sentence.

But the case is not closed. Perugia prosecutors have appealed against the two acquittals, with Italy’s highest appeal court due to hear their plea within months.

It could lead to a new trial being held in Florence. Locals in the walled town remain divided about what actually happened at the house where Meredith died.

Meredith case, the Perugia-Seattle truce: lobby is hostile

Translation: Zorba

Not just cultural activities were behind the visit of a delegation from Perugia to Seattle, additionally real diplomacy and saving export relationships and those between universities played an equal role.

by Nicola Bossi

Meredith case, Perugia and Seattle confirm twinning. Mended relations with Seattle.

Twinning has been saved but anti-Perugia pressure from the USA after the Meredith case with the arrest of Amanda Knox (resident of the American town twinned with Perugia) did not subside because there is still the appeal to the Supreme Court which could revive the process after the 'acquittal on appeal' of the student in Seattle (Amanda Knox) and former boyfriend (Raffaele Sollecito). The report - concerning U.S. pressure - against the institutions of the American sister city is on the table of the Mayor of Perugia, Wladimiro Boccali.

Yeah because the trip from Perugia to Seattle was certainly not only to open an exhibition of ceramics and the Festival of Italian Cinema. The goal was to figure out whether to continue the twinning, the cultural exchanges and the relationships between universities of the two cities or to greet each other with a lot of trawling through polemics. The relationship were again blown out after a number of nasty letters to the Mayor of Perugia, always regarding Meredith's case. The Perugian group would however achieve an initial result: twinning to remain and to recommence a relationship. At least on paper.

American sources have reiterated to the envoys of the Mayor of Perugia Wladimiro Boccali that the angry letters would be the result of pressure from powerful lobby groups in Seattle who have not digested the Meredith Kercher case.

It is no secret to anyone that the green area [in Seattle], which the city of Perugia was entitled to, has been given an alternative designation and that this led to an interruption [read, breakdown] of the exchanges.

But through the length of the truce it is feared the judgement of the Supreme Court, which could revive the process, could also lead to a defaulting Amanda Knox (hard to see her again in Italy in a court of law) as well as Raffaele Sollecito.

But the Italian justice system (and that of any democratic country) should not be devalued or blackmailed by pressure of any kind.

The same [American = Seattle-based] pressure lobby group also depicted in the past, the prosecutor Giuliano Mignigni (Perugia doctor of law) as a sort of impostor, an inquisitor rather than an honest Magistrate.

Behind the twinning there are also economic interests (export of our companies) and interchange of freshmen (see the presence of Amanda Knox in Perugia).

From here, the idea exists of ​​certain associations and USA lobby groups destroying the relationship - by a sort of economic embargo and cultural disadvantage, they think - of/with Perugia.

Meredith, the Procura of Bari asks case to be dismissed against Telenorba and members of the Sollecito family

Translation: Jools
Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=123214#p123214
Post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.net/viewtopic.php?p=101172#p101172

The request will be discussed on January 13.

Request to dismiss case in one of the linked processes that originated from the principal process of the murder of Meredith Kercher. 'The procura of Bari request to dismiss the case of the director of the Puglia network Telenorba, Enzo Magista', the journalist of the TV show “Il Graffio” aired in April 2008 and some relatives of Raffaele Sollecito: Rosaria Achilles, Maria Papagni, Francesco and Giuseppe Sollecito. “The broadcast of some parts of the video in regard to the investigation carried out by the scientific police in the house in which the body of Meredith Kercher was found -- as written in the request to be archived --, in which [film] the naked body of the victim was shown, took place in the scope of the right to freedom of the press without any intention of attacking the reputation of the murdered student.”

No offense. According to the prosecutor in Bari Antonio Laudati, “it cannot be deemed offensive to common decency, the showing in particular of the wound on Meredith’s neck, since the images were accompanied by a criminology discussion on how the wound had been inflicted. The same [images], however, are less offensive than many other bloody images that are transmitted daily on TV. The publication of images by Telenorba occurred in the scope of exercising the right to report on an event which had aroused special interest among the public.”

The competent jurisdiction. The investigation was started by the Procura of Perugia that, in various headings, charged alleged crimes related to defamation, violation of privacy and publication of arbitrary acts of investigation. In October 2011, the GUP of Perugia ruled it was the territorial jurisdiction of Bari. However, now Bari asks it to be archived. “The unusability of the intercepted phone tapping - concludes Laudati - does not allow to support the charge in court against the suspects, relatives of Raffaele, “whose involvement is revealed only from the tapping [of their phones]” not to mention that “some offenses are wiped out.”

The opposition. For Francesco Maresca, the lawyer acting for the family of Meredith Kercher, “in the reproduction of images” transmitted by Telenorba, it had “attacked the moral sphere of the victim.” In opposition to the request to dismiss, the Florentine lawyer adds that “the purpose of the televised piece was just to show the naked body of the victim and not simply to comment on the severity of the inflicted wounds. It cannot be considered mere freedom of the press: the images are ‘obscene’.

The hearing at which the request will be discussed is scheduled for Jan 13 in front of the GIP of Bari. The accused are defended by lawyers Marco Brusco, Francesco Crisi, Paolo Sisto and Francesco Mastro.

Title, release date announced for Amanda Knox book
By Associated Press

Amanda Knox's upcoming memoir has a title, a cover design and a new publication date.

HarperCollins announced Wednesday the book is titled "Waiting to be Heard." It will come out April 30, two months later than originally scheduled. The date was changed out of deference to a court in Italy that scheduled a March 25 hearing for the prosecution's appeal of the former exchange student's acquittal in the 2007 murder of her British roommate.

The cover features a close-up of an intense, unsmiling Knox. The picture was taken earlier this year.

Knox lawyers caution against Perugia murder film

Lawyers acting on behalf of Amanda Knox, the young American acquitted for the murder of British Erasmus student Meredith Kercher in Perugia in 2007, cautioned private broadcaster Mediaset not to screen a televison film based on the story on Monday [Dec 3] as planned. 'Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy' was first screened in the US in 2011 amid strong opposition from the protagonists' families and lawyers. "There is a trial underway and so we consider the broadcast to be untimely," lawyer Luciano Ghirga told ANSA. Knox said she did not like the film and "has asked us what we can do to prevent it being shown in Italy," he added. The young woman was convicted of murdering Kercher, 21, together with her then boyfriend, the Italian Raffaele Sollecito, by a court of first instance in December 2009 and the pair were respectively sentenced to 26 and 25 years in prison. Their guilty verdict was subsequently overturned two years later by a court of appeal. The Perugia prosecutor's office and Kercher family contested the decision and their case is set to be heard by the supreme Court of Cassation, Italy's highest court, next March.

MediaSet haven’t yet received the injunction against broadcasting the film next Monday [Dec 3]. They’ve only received a letter asking them to transmit the film according to the requirements of the law, which, they say, they do with every film.

Raffaele’s father says that since his son no longer watches TV, he is “absolutely certain” that he won’t be watching the film either. “When he was in prison, he did nothing but watch TV. From the time he has been released, he has chosen not to watch it ever again, so as not to remember things that he wants to forget.” “It would have been more opportune not to air the film while the Cassation decision was still pending.”

Adds Luca Maori: “We will however be waiting to see the film, to then initiate all the actions necessary to safeguard the name and reputation of Raffaele Sollecito.”

Amanda Knox, the controversial film airs tomorrow night

Tomorrow in the early evening, Channel 5 will air "Amanda Knox", the first TV film inspired by the murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia on the night of November 1, 2007.

The protagonist is in fact an American Amanda Knox, who was accused in the first instance, with ex-boyfriend Gabriele Sollecito [sic] and then acquitted on appeal for not having committed the crime. The film, produced in the U.S., is directed by Robert Dornhelm, while the two lovers are played by Hayden Panettiere and Paolo Romio.

But the defenders of the real Amanda Knox sent a notice to Mediaset asking not to broadcast the controversial film. We speak of lawyers Carlo dalla Vedova and Luciano Ghirga. The lawyer Ghirga told Ansa the reason for the injunction: "There is an ongoing process and therefore we believe the screening of the film to be untimely.”

"Our client asked us to do what we can because the movie is not available in Italy. And then I don’t like the actor who plays me. " Meanwhile, the girl from Seattle, after seeing "Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy", broadcast in America a year ago, said that she does not like the film.

The company in Cologno Manzese [Milan], however, has made it known: "Mediaset has not received any warnings or a formal notice, but only a letter with an invitation by the lawyers of Miss Knox requesting to transmit the film in accordance with the requirements of the law, which is something Mediaset does with every program that goes on air”.

The student, meanwhile, is preparing for publication her book "Waiting to be Heard", a collection of her memoirs written in her four years spent in prison, to be released in the United States on April 30. Even Gabriele Sollecito [sic] has written a book, "Honour Bound" released last September in America.

Amanda Knox, Canale 5 ricade nella trappola del "film-verità" - Amanda Knox, Channel 5 falls into the trap of "film-truth"

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Original Post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.net/viewtopic.php?p=101592#p101592

Last year, we enjoyed the movie on the subject of "The crime in Via Poma" on a technical level, but we were quite skeptical that a product like that was really necessary, given that the process [trial] was still ongoing.

The same feeling emerges when watching "Amanda Knox," the TV movie that depicts the crime of Perugia and the trial in the Court of First Instance. The differences in production with Italian fiction can be noticed, but the basics, the original idea is always the same: a desire to talk about one of the most controversial court cases in Italy but without the ability to have a closure. For the simple reason that the end of this story is yet to come.

It makes sense, therefore, to reconstruct the arrival and life of Amanda Knox in Italy. The operation is thus shown to be of dubious value, a trap set up [by the director] for the audience in the hope to be able to shed light on the ideas on a case that undoubtedly drew upon itself the attention of the public, but also [a trap] for Channel 5 itself, which finds itself facing accusations of wanting to speculate on a true story that is still "hot", for proposing a more American perspective, which tends to attack the Italian legal system regardless of whether the main character is guilty or not.

TV movies such as "Amanda Knox", putting aside the quality of the product - but do not be fooled by the fact that it is an American production as it is not enough to mark it ‘Made in the USA’ to make it a good work - indeed, clash with the reality of facts and versions told by the protagonists, creating a disturbing effect that is not required.

If the news and in-depth programs at least had the excuse of having to inform the public about the new process [trial], productions such as these leave us, after we watched them, more stunned than convinced that we have witnessed an attempt to get closer to the truth.

Kercher murder, the film "Amanda Knox" shown for the first time in Italy. “Free spirit” among many stereotypes

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Original Post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.net/viewtopic.php?p=101593#p101593

ROME - Nearly two years after the release of the film in America, it landed last night in prime time on Channel 5 as a premiere of "Amanda Knox", the Italian version of the film "Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy", which recounts the adventures of Foxy Knoxy accused and convicted in the first degree of the murder of Meredith Kercher, along with Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Guede. It would be alright, if it were not for a blatant presentation of Knox as a clean and perfect girl, constantly in tears and harassed by the Italian justice system defined as “absolutely crazy” in a line, pronounced in the movie by the actress who plays the mother of Amanda.

Watching "Amanda Knox" so long not only after the end of the first trial, but also of the appeal that acquitted the American and Raffaele Sollecito of murder, is doubly funny. On the one hand, there is the passing of time that has an effect on the reality of the story, or rather the fiction, the reality that saw Amanda, many months ago, go back to America and Raffaele Sollecito (who is from Bari) withdraw to Bisceglie.

On the other hand, there is a steady flow of stereotypes that the film director Robert Dornhelm presents: not only all the traditional stereotypes of Italian justice, depicted as sloppy, siding with the prosecution, and even racist (see the sequence of the 13 hour-interrogation of Amanda in which investigators seek to put in the mouth of the American the name of Patrick Lumumba), but also stereotypes regarding representation of the protagonist.

Beautiful in real life as in this fictional story (played by Hayden Panettiere), Amanda with tears running down her face is painted in such a way that we tend to attribute any kind of endearment to her: petite, tender [tenerina], innocent [innocentina], culpable [colpevolina], in short, it is important that her image automatically invokes an adjective that ends with a diminutive suffix. This would, perhaps, make her in the viewer's eyes incapable of sticking a knife into the throat of a friend, as suggested by the prosecution. Let us not forget, in fact, that the film was released in the middle of the appeal process. Knox is, however, described as a victim of the Italian justice system that purports to at least be open-minded; here it says so.

It is the same with Raffaele Sollecito, aka Paolo Romio, who calls Amanda "a free spirit" [spirito libero], an Amanda who was imprisoned, almost like a bird in a cage, in a cold cell in which she hardly would have been able to do cartwheels or pirouettes.

Amanda, who describes the period before the Kercher murder as "the best time of my life", finds herself in a new reality to which the door is “different”, as told by her father in a line from the movie.

Tears and sobs finally take possession of Amanda when it comes to the final lines that make her look almost like a little girl in search of answers, such as "Why is everyone against me?"

Amanda's final appeal, pathos of one thousand percent consumes the American [actress] (as the director had intended ...) : her acting of fake Knox puts it halfway between that of Evita / Madonna in the "Do not cry for me Argentina" and Jessica Rabbit from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit." And she always sheds a few tears that always have an effect. Then she is sentenced to 26 years. But the rest is the history of the Italian courts.

Knox's lawyers, Carlo della Vedova and Luciano Ghirga did not want the film to be shown because they believed its contents to be "highly damaging to the dignity of Amanda." They were supposed to prevent the film being screened [to stop Monday's scheduled screening of the movie]; however, its screening on the other hand offers such a stereotypical image of Italy that "To Rome With Love" by Woody Allen looks like a cool documentary in comparison. Italy, however, receives a slap in the face when Hayden Panettiere, in the role of Amanda, says that "everything is illegal in Italy but nothing is forbidden."

Meredith Murder: Girlanda (PDL), the film shows real bad administration of Perugia

Translation: Jools
Original Post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=123490#p123490

“The film about the death of Meredith Kercher, which provides an Americanized version of the case, and the human and psychological profiles of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, on the basis of a production made in short time, taking advantage of the international stir produced by the judicial case, should not provoke particular outrage in relation to the representation of the city of Perugia and its forms of degradation, well known to all the residents.” Said the MP Rocco Girlanda, PDL, at the time president of the Italy USA foundation and author of the book “I'm coming with you,” about Amanda Knox. “I read in the media and on social networks the outrage against a film where, at the beginning, there are the depicted scenes of drug dealing out in the open, as well as phrases and expressions such as “in Italy everything is illegal but nothing is forbidden.”

"For this reason, however, I think it is just right to put to one side momentarily the feelings of rejection towards those who offend the image of Italy around the world and of Perugia in particular, focusing the attention on the connection to the unfortunately tragic reality of some scenes from the film and on the fact that the policy choices made by the local administrators, even five years after the fact, did not produce a radical change of the state of things. It’s enough to go into the city center after 11:00 pm for anyone to realise, despite the majority of the reports and institutional recommendations made by law enforcement, the volume of the drug dealing market does not seem to start to diminish, not only hashish and marijuana referred to in the film, noted unfortunately by the dreary distinction of European Capital of overdose deaths in relation to population. In this sense, then - concludes Girlanda – I ask to reflect on the effects of such a film going round the world, beyond the judicial case, that in recent years have resulted in a decline of the flow of tourists and the number of students enrolled in university centers."

You've heard from [Amanda] in the past few days. What did she tell you about it?"

Rocco: "Well, look-- she's told me more than once...At this point in time, the public relationship we had became only a great private friendship..."
"I regularly hear from Amanda... about this and that, about our friendship and our private lives."
..................
[About the airing of this film in Italy]. "She's worried. She says it's an awful film. It doesn't reflect the actual story."

"I believe that Amanda has moved on a great deal from the controversy that had to do with her time in Italy. "

Amanda Knox like Penelope: writes and rewrites her tell-all book

Translation: Jools
Original Post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=123483#p123483

The young woman accused and then acquitted of the murder of Meredith Kercher is completing her memoirs. From which this week’s OGGI advances some scabrous content.

Amanda Knox writes her book of memoirs. Excerpts from which are published by OGGI, on newsstands Wednesday. The tell-all book will come out April 30, at the conclusion of the process for the crime of Perugia in the Supreme Court, at the end of that bad dream made of a murder, a conviction in the first instance trial and an acquittal in the second instance.

IN JAIL FOR 4 YEARS - Amanda Knox, and with her Raffaele Sollecito, was jailed for 4 years before she was acquitted on appeal. And OGGI, on newsstands Wednesday, is able to anticipate some of the contents of the book by the young Seattle woman. Amanda has been busily working on her memoirs since last February. But the book is done, gets undone and is redone, like Penelope's cloth.

NOT MORE THAN 300 PAGES – The publisher HarperCollins has offered Amanda as much as 4 million dollars, but requires that the volume does not exceed 300 pages. She, reveals OGGI, still has a lot to include: from the separation of her parents when she was only two years old to the more recent parties or scholarship in her honor.

ARREST AND DETENTION – In the middle of everything, the “film” of the arrest, the interrogation without a lawyer (even with the heavy accusations made recently by Sollecito), the long detention, the difficult return to Seattle and her second life after years of isolation: everyone wanted to talk to her and hug her; it was hard; she needed to remain isolated. OGGI reveals that Amanda will also tell that the contact with the babies, children of other prisoners, was “the oasis that saved her.”

Meredith's case: Raffaele Sollecito risks lawsuit as a result of what he wrote

by Nicola Bossi

Translation: Zorba

Zorba - http://perugiamurderfile.net/viewtopic.php?style=6&p=102368#p102368

Meredith, Sollecito's book: impending lawsuit

An alleged negotiation/deal [allegations made by Sollecito in his book]... a reconstruction to run down the allegations made by Amanda Knox about violence experienced and in the view of the Police in Perugia, never proved. Mignini reflects on the lawsuit.

The case is not closed despite books & movies about Meredith seeming almost to relegate the case into the realm of archives after Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were acquitted in the second degree of what is - and always does under Italian law involve - a three degree criminal law process; they were convicted in the "first degree" for the murder of British girl Meredith Kercher in Via della Pergola, in Perugia, Italy.

On 25 March 2013, the Court of Cassation in Rome will have to express its view regarding accepting the request for reopening of the case made by the Public Prosecutor and signed by the prosecutor Dr Giuliano Mignini.

There is a climate of confidence in circles close to the magistrate on a [positive = for the prosecution] verdict that many have tried - in Italy and the United States - to discredit heavily. But the same circles always talk about a Mignini, who, with great serenity, is considering how to move after the attacks suffered - meaning and regarding attacks against those who have worked with him in law enforcement - in and from the book written by Raffaele Sollecito.

It becomes more and more likely that a lawsuit for libel (defamation) will be started for certain passages in particular.

The documentation published by Sollecito has already sparked controversy and clamour [a loud persistent outcry, as from a large number of people], especially on the subject of a hypothetical negotiation that Sollecito was offered a deal to blame only Amanda, whereupon if he accepted, he would be immediately released.

But the matter also involves allegations made against the police concerning alleged violence during his [Sollecito's] interrogation.

"If you try to get up and leave, I'll turn you into blood pesto and kill you. I'll leave you in a pool of blood," according to Sollecito in his book called Honor Bound released in America and in which Sollecito attributes these words to the police agents in Perugia.

"They wanted to trap Amanda for lying": this is the premise of the negotiation, which even seeks to pull Mignini into it indirectly; Mignini has always denied these allegations.

This would allegedly have been enough to get Sollecito out of jail early, leaving the American in trouble.

In other words, these accusations are so serious that the prosecutor has no intention whatsoever of overlooking them!

Q&A with author Nina Burleigh

Nina Burleigh is the author of five books. Her most recent is The Fatal Gift of Beauty: The Trials of Amanda Knox.

Q: What drew you to write about Amanda Knox, and how did you do your research for that book?

A: The answer to that is partly sublime (by that I mean serious) and partly ridiculous. I had been looking for a subject that would allow me to explore what happens to girls, young women on the verge of maturity. What are the perils, the challenges, how has the porn-ification of culture affected their self-image and the ways in which they become sexual beings?

When I heard about the Amanda Knox case, I joked with my agent, who is an Italophile, that if she could get me a book contract, she could come live in the villa while I reported and she translated. Well, she got me a book deal. And we moved there as a family and I learned some Italian and I learned a lot about the dark side of Italy, and the perils that lurk in wait for young girls. It turned out to be a hard year and a hard subject, there was so much that was occult about their society and their judicial system, and some creepy things happened, my laptop was hacked, for example. But I am extremely proud of that book. I think it’s my best.

In 2014, George Clooney will return to Italy as an actor and producer for the film The Monster of Florence. The production, in addition to the well-known actor, is entrusted to Dan Jinks and Grant Heslov. The actor will play the writer Douglas Preston, who moved with his family to Italy in 2000. After a while it is discovered that the olive grove owned by them was the scene of a brutal crime. So, along with Italian journalist Mario Spezi, he starts an investigation that will put you on the trail of the 8 dual murders that took place near Florence between 1968 and 1985. Italian authorities did not like their curiosity so that Preston was interrogated, and Spezi even ended up in jail. The two are the authors of Dolci colline di sangue (Rolling Hills of Blood) on which the film is based. Criminology enthusiasts, do not miss this film!"

Meredith, the “calunnia” trial against Amanda Knox moves to Florence

The Perugia court has [been] ruled ‘incompetent’ for its territorial jurisdiction while admitting prosecutor Mignini [being] among the injured parties.


Translation: Jools
Original Post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=125843#p125843

The process that sees Amanda Knox accused of ‘calunnia’ against some police officers from the Perugia Flying Squad moves to Florence. Knox, acquitted on appeal with Raffaele Sollecito of the murder of the British student Meredith Kercher is on trial for having falsely accused the officers of inducing her to indicate Patrick Lumumba as the perpetrator of the murder during the course of interrogations at the Perugia police headquarters in November 2007.

Competence. Knox's lawyers, Luciano Ghirga and Carlo Dalla Vedova raised the preliminary objection on the territorial incompetence of Perugia arguing that among the offended parties of the slander there's also the magistrate Giuliano Mignini, who was investigating the murder, and that for this reason the competence to judge lies with Florence. Argument accepted by the judge Daniele Cenci, after two hours of deliberation.

Mignini: “I was not there”. Opposed to the request of Amanda Knox defence this morning were the prosecutor Giuliano Mignini and the lawyer Francesco Maresca, already Meredith Kercher family lawyer, is the legal defender for the police officers in this case. “I was not there when the ‘verbale’ of the interrogation was written during which, according to Knox, she had been subjected to pressures,” said the prosecutor Mignini in the courtroom.

The defence: “But injured party”. According to the American young woman’s defence instead, “Mignini, although not physically present at the time, was directing police operations. For this he’s the injured party. Whilst it may be that Knox has slandered, Mignini is the injured party. Thus, the competency of prosecution is Florence." The lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova also spoke of “judicial tenacity.”

Should Amanda Knox be convicted of slander?
By Chelsea Hoffman

Amanda Knox slandered the Italian courts when she accused a judge and Italian police of physically assaulting her and verbally abusing her. All of her claims have since been proven false which is going to make it hard for her to win this case.[...]

Keep in mind that while this slander trial continues, prosecutors are also preparing for the appeal of the appeal that got her released from prison in the first place. That means that even though Knox is currently free she is still facing an uphill battle and her freedom may only be shortlived. If she is re-convicted of murdering Meredith Kercher, the United States will likely be required to send her back to Italy.[...]

Amanda Knox to Give Her First Interview to ABC News

Exclusive Interview with Diane Sawyer Will Air During an ABC News Primetime Special on Tuesday, April 30 at 10:00 PM

ABC News Anchor Diane Sawyer Secures Amanda Knox Interview
By Alex Weprin

As expected, Knox was not offered payment for the interview, but rather maximum exposure as she prepares to promote her book, which comes out the same day as the ABC News interview. In addition to the primetime special, portions of the Knox interview (and mentions of the book) will air on “ABC World News,” “Good Morning America,” “Nightline” and ABC’s digital platforms, expanding its reach exponentially.

While Sawyer is getting the big interview, it was correspondent Elizabeth Vargas who did most of the legwork in Italy for ABC, and led the network’s coverage of the case.
The trial was not without some controversy for the U.S. networks. Two of Knox’s sisters stayed in the hotel room of an ABC News producer while the trial was going on. CBS News and NBC News also apparently offered hotel rooms.

Meredith: PM Mignini files complaint against Sollecito for book 'Honor Bound'

Translation: Jools

The public prosecutor of Perugia, Giuliano Mignini has filed a lawsuit action - legal complaint for the criminal offences of defamation and contempt, in relation to “serious claims contained in the book 'Honor Bound', written by Raffaele Sollecito and Andrew Gumbel and published in the United States in September last year”.

This was announced by Mignini's lawyer, Domenico Cesaro from the legal firm Sciascia in Caserta. “Sollecito’s book - explains the lawyer - contains statements defamatory and offensive to the judiciary and the State Police.”


AGI

February 15, 2013 (cont.)

The lawsuit was filed to the prosecutor of Perugia but it will be immediately forwarded to the competence of Florence. In his book, Sollecito offers his version of the facts related to the murder of [Meredith] Kercher. A complaint by Mignini, among other matters, refers to a passage from the book in which Sollecito argues that the prosecutor would have had some sort of secret negotiations with his family. A possibility already categorically denied by the public prosecutor. At the moment, neither Sollecito nor his defense lawyers have commented on the news of the lawsuit.

Meredith case: Mignini sues Sollecito for defamation

Translation: Google + Guermantes

According to the lawyer Cesaro, Sollecito's book "contains statements defamatory and offensive to the judiciary and the State Police [Polizia di Stato]." Raffaele Sollecito in his book talks about an alleged deal between the family members, lawyers and the same Mignini to blame only Amanda Knox, and Sollecito in return would obtain freedom. Mignini had already publicly denied the alleged deal. In March, the Supreme Court will rule on the appeal against the acquittal of second degree.

BEHIND THE SCENES AND SUSPICIONS - But those close to the prosecutor Mignini are convinced that the book "Honor Bound" may have been inspired (perhaps) partly by some people linked to the U.S. and who have had to deal with the very same magistrate. Comes to mind, therefore, the "Monster of Florence” – Narducci Case where the prosecutor investigated the movements - called false leads ... but then everything turned - two important names of the international journalism: Mario Spezi - who ended up in prison in Perugia - and Preston. The latter is an American writer and columnist of great renown. Preston and Spezi are the authors of Rolling Hills of Blood which cultivates the Sardinian track to solve the mystery of the Monster of Florence. Mignini and also the prosecutor of Florence instead have always been convinced of the theory of the elite group [...] for the murders of Florence. Needless to say, Preston and Spezi, like Mignini, were present in the affairs of the Kercher case. In particular, the Italian journalist attended the trial rooting for Amanda Knox. In short, only suspicions and no certainty. "


PERUGIA TODAY

February 16, 2013

Giuliano Mignini has appointed lawyers from Caserta to lodge a complaint (file a lawsuit) against Raffaele Sollecito and Andrew Gumbel, authors of the book Honor Bound, published in the U.S. in September, for purely statutory and compensatory damages. These are criminal defense lawyer Domenico Cesaro and Prof. Massimiliano Sciascia.

Telenorba/Sollecito-family case

Translation: Catnip
Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=126629#p126629

La Repubblica newspaper, Bari edition, 17 February 2013, reports that “next Thursday” (21-Feb) the court will decide whether one of the satellite cases, about the Telenorba April 2008 transmission, should be permanently archived, as requested by the Prosecutor’s Office. Bari prosecutor, Antonio Laudati, doesn’t consider the forensic images were particularly offensive or in bad taste. “They are, in any case, less offensive than many of the other bloody images that are daily transmitted on TV”.

La Repubblica continues, quoting Laudati, that the unusability of the phone intercepts doesn’t allow the sustaining of the allegations against Raffaele’s family (defended by lawyers Marco Brusco, Francesco Crisi, Paolo Sisto and Francesco Mastro).

Francesco Maresca, on the other hand, contends that the transmission’s sole purpose was to show the victim’s nude body and not simply to comment on the seriousness of the inflicted wounds, as claimed by the TV station, and so the moral space of the victim was injured.

An hour and a quarter for the hearing, but the investigating judge of Bari hasn't arrived at any decision yet. It will come in the next few days and only with the filing of the order you will know if the request advanced by the prosecutor's office of Puglia in favor of the family of Raffaele Sollecito and some journalists of Telenorba - under investigation for defamation and invasion of privacy for broadcasting in 2008 images of the mangled corpse of Meredith Kercher - is successful or not.

Bari, video showing body of Mez, dismissal for family members of Sollecito. Charges for Telenorba journalists.

Translation: Jools
Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=127357#p127357

The Bari prosecutor had also asked for the dismissal of charges for Sollecito’s relatives.

The investigating magistrate in Bari Gianluca Anglana ordered the compulsory indictment for journalists of Telenorba Enzo Magistà and Antonio Procacci involved in the inquest triggered by the airing of the video shot by the scientific police of Perugia showing the corpse of Meredith Kercher. The investigating judge has instead archived the roles of the family of Raffaele Sollecito, acquitted on appeal of the murder charge along with Amanda Knox.

Half dismissal. The Bari prosecutor had asked the archiving for all the defendants because “the airing of some parts of the movie related to the investigation carried out by the forensic police in the house where the body of Meredith Kercher was found – as written in the request to archive-- in which the naked body of the victim was shown, it was in the context of the exercise of freedom of the press without any intention of attacking the reputation of the murdered student.”

Sollecito defence. “Finally, today the ‘last’ word has been said, having clearly established the absolute absence of criminal profiles of relevance regarding the conduct of Raffaele Sollecito’s relatives, who, in the legitimate attempt to defend their family member, did not commit any crime.” As written by lawyers Marco Brusco, Francesco Crisi and Francesco Mastro in a joint statement after the investigating judge of Bari ordered the dismissal of charges against the family of Raffaele Sollecito in the scope of the inquest into the screening of a movie where the body of Meredith Kercher was shown. The investigation was launched by the prosecutor of Perugia that, under various headings, noted offences related to defamation, invasion of privacy and publication of arbitrary acts of investigation.

Non-usable interceptions. The lawyers express “deep satisfaction for both the exoneration of their clients as well as for the declaration of the non-usability (expressed by the prosecutor and agreed by the investigating judge) about the phone wiretaps carried out at the time on the private lines of members of Raffaele Sollecito's family. It remains to understand, at this point- they argue-, what has been the usefulness and the need to monitor, for about four months, the telephone lines of the above.”

The Supreme Court. The inquest had gone to court in Bari after the Perugia judge declared lack of territorial jurisdiction of the Perugia courts. The process derived from the airing of the movie showing the corpse of Meredith; it was one of many satellite processes born from the main one with charges of culpable homicide. For that, in March 25 it will be up to the Supreme Court to have its say after the appeal action brought by the Prosecutor General of Perugia against the acquittal of the two former lovers.

Director of Telenorba and journalist indicted for broadcasting the video of Meredith's body. The Sollecito family is not being charged.

The judge rejected the request for dismissal filed by prosecutors in Bari in relation to offenses of libel and violation of the privacy code by Enzo Magistà, director of Telenorba, and the journalist Antonio Procacci.

The court granted the request for dismissal for father, stepmother, sister and two uncles of Sollecito, sharing the conclusions of the prosecution.

The Meredith Case, The Supreme Court and Satellite Cases

Shortly, March 25 to be exact, politics and the Pope could be set aside for a moment so the papers can again make space for the case of the murder of Meredith Kercher, which took place on 1 November 2007. As many recall, the two main suspects, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were acquitted of murder by the Court of Appeals in Perugia.

But for them the case is not yet finished, as the Prosecutor General of Perugia has petitioned the Supreme Court to set aside the judgment and order another appeal after examining the reasons for acquittal.

The Prosecutor General of Perugia, Giovanni Galati, after filing the appeal to the Supreme Court against the judgment of acquittal, bluntly described his request as to "cancel'' and that "there are specific reasons to cancel it.'' For the Prosecutor of Perugia, the written judgment with which the second-degree court acquitted the ex-lovers has many errors and omissions. There is an "inconsistency of motivation, a useless argument that leads nowhere.'' For the Prosecutor General Giancarlo Costagliola "'it's as if [Hellmann] had decided the murder of Meredith Kercher from scratch, relying only on the arguments of the defense. Normally, the appellate court evaluates the arguments of the court of first instance and compares it with the new items. But this judgment was not based on a comparison between the findings of the first and second instance. It was only based on what was done on appeal.''

The hearing is set for March 25. Meanwhile a number of satellite cases related to the Meredith case just got started, and one just ended with the acquittal of the family of Sollecito. The family of the boy [sic] were investigated along with journalists from Bari Telenorba for leaking a movie shot by the police in Perugia, in which you could see the battered corpse of poor Meredith. ''Finally today there is the word 'end'," their lawyers said. "The court has established the absolute absence of criminal conduct by relatives of Raffaele Sollecito and, in their legitimate attempts to defend him, the family has not committed any crime.''

Dismissal of the charges against Telenorba journalists Enzo Magista and Antonio Procacci, which was requested by the prosecutor, was rejected by Bari investigating magistrate Gianluca Anglana, who ordered the case to proceed. The process will start again from the preliminary hearing. The hearing will be held in Bari, as the district court in Perugia was declared territorially incompetent.

In another satellite case, transferred to the prosecutor of Florence for the same reason, Amanda Knox has been accused of slander. According to the indictment, Knox slandered officers of the Perugia Flying Squad by saying that the way she had been questioned at police headquarters before her arrest had been "violent" and that she had received some "slaps" in the head. The defense of Amanda Knox has raised two preliminary objections: one against the prosecutor of Perugia and the other against the civil party of police officers. [Not clear what the second one was.] In particular, the lawyers have argued that the prosecutor Giuliano Mignini should be considered an injured party. Due to having an involved magistrate, jurisdiction lies with the court of Florence. The judge Daniele Cenci ruled in favor of the defense and sent the case to the prosecutor of Florence.

Another satellite case will be held in Perugia. That is the libel trial of the parents of Amanda Knox. Curt Knox and Edda Mellas are accused of defamation in the press of some police officers in Perugia by saying the officers had "abused'' Amanda the night she was interrogated for the murder of Meredith, confirming the allegations of their daughter.

In Broadcast Booking Wars, A Shift In Power
By Alex Weprin

Today recently lost Amanda Knox, the student who was jailed in Italy for the stabbing death of her roommate, to ABC. Sources say NBC’s Matt Lauer was working hard to land Knox, whose memoir hits April 30, the same day ABC rolls out Diane Sawyer‘s Knox interview across broadcasts including GMA and a primetime special. “I have had at least two book publishers tell me that they think Diane Sawyer sells books,” says one source, citing her 2012 sit-down with kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard, whose memoir sold close to 200,000 on its release date.

Book promotion is the new “licensing fee,” and ABC is more game to provide coverage on multiple programs and platforms than NBC has been.

Hayden Panettiere Apologizes To Murder Victim’s Family

Actress Hayden Panettiere has apologized to the family of murder victim Meredith Kercher after portraying her accused killer Amanda Knox onscreen.
The Heroes star took the role of Knox in controversial 2011 TV movie Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy while the student was still in jail for the slaying.
Knox was set free later that year after a court in Italy overturned the verdict and quashed her murder conviction, and Panettiere has now spoken out to offer her sympathies to Kercher’s family for any heartache her movie caused.
Panettiere tells British magazine Stella, “I can completely understand the feelings of the Kercher family… I apologize deeply for any pain that was inflicted. But I didn’t do anything out of disrespect.”

Indictment for the chief Prosecutor of Bari-Antonio Laudati*: "He slowed down the investigation of Tarantini"

Translation: Jools
Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=128368#p128368

The Office of the Prosecution in Lecce asked in the indictment to defer to trial the chief prosecutor of Bari Antonio Laudati and the former prosecutor Giuseppe Scelsi for trying to “suppress the investigation in relation to the escort [girls] case” involving Gianpaolo Tarantini and Silvio Berlusconi. The alleged crimes committed are abuse of office and for Laudati alone, also aiding and abetting. The event is related to the management of the investigation on the escort-girls that Tarantini, the enterpreneur from Bari, procured for the former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for the parties at his residences.

The death of Francesco Narducci, the Supreme Court reopens the process

His death was connected to the story of the 'monster' of Florence

Reopen the case of the alleged false leads in the death of Francesco Narducci. This is the Perugia doctor, who had disappeared under mysterious circumstances and was found October 13, 1985 in Lake Trasimeno, whose name is connected with the investigation on the 'monster' of Florence. Asking judges of the third penal section of the Supreme Court to accept the prosecution’s arguments and those of the defence of Narducci’s widow, who claims damages, is the Attorney General Pietro Gaeta. A decision is expected late this evening or tomorrow.

The process involves in various capacities 22 defendants for crimes ranging from omission of official acts to concealment of a corpse. The prosecutor of Perugia claims an alleged conspiracy, at the heart of which would have been the father of the doctor, Ugo Narducci, so that his son's death might suggest a murder somehow connected to the events of the Monster of Florence.

The family of the gastroenterologist has always spoken of an accident or a suicide, excluding any reference to the events of the 'monster'. The case was dismissed, but in 2001 the prosecutor of Perugia, Giuliano Mignini, decided to reopen the case considering that Narducci had been the victim of a murder because of his involvement in the events of the 'monster', with alleged links to the instigators of the murder adventure.


LA NAZIONE

March 22, 2013

The Supreme Court reopens the process on the death of Perugia doctor Francesco Narducci, who died under mysterious circumstances on 8 October 1985 and was found dead in Lake Trasimeno.

The third criminal division of the Supreme Court, after a long deliberation, has partially upheld the appeals filed by the prosecutor of Perugia and the widow of Narducci, canceling with reference to certain of these charges, the judgment of the GUP of Perugia issued on April 20, 2010, with which all twenty defendants were acquitted - some of them family members of the doctor, public officials and law-enforcement officers - accused, for various reasons, to have taken part in an attempt to mislead the investigation into the death of the doctor. Now the preliminary hearing judge will review the case.

According to the indictment, the alleged misdirection would have been implemented to lead the investigation away from the supposed murder linked to the events of the Monster of Florence, in which Narducci was somehow involved.

Monster of Florence, the case on the death of Narducci reopened

The Supreme Court reopens the case on the alleged misdirection in the death of Francesco Naducci, the 36-year old doctor whose body was found in 1985 in lake Trasimeno. The body was found Oct. 13, five days after his death, between the island of Povese and the municipality of Saint‘Arcangelo; the man was married and belonged to one of the most famous families of Perugia. According to the indictment, the alleged misdirection would have been implemented to ensure that the alleged murder would not be linked to the events of the Monster of Florence.

The 3 / a penal section thus partially upheld the appeal of the Prosecutor of Perugia and Narducci’s widow: no prescription for some crimes but annulled with reference to other charges against the judgment of acquittal by GUP of 20 April 2010, against the defendants, more than twenty in total, involved in various ways. Now the preliminary hearing judge will review the case.

VERSION OF DEFENCE - The Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of the Prosecutor of Perugia against the acquittal on the charge of conspiracy which has been leveled against the father of Francesco Narducci and five other people. Making final the acquittal pronounced by GUP with the formula "'cause did not exist." It was reported by the defender of the doctor’s family, the lawyer Francesco Falcinelli.

According to the lawyer, criminal association "was the cornerstone of the trial, on which the prosecution’s investigation was focused" and it was among other things the possibility of the so-called double-body swap. Against the acquittal of the accused had also appealed the widow of Francesco Narducci, a civil party. "I am satisfied - said the lawyer Falcinelli – by the Supreme Court judgment that reiterated the absence of criminal association, thus permanently rejecting any inference. “Francesco Narducci - he concluded - died of a suicide."

The family of Meredith Kercher will await on Monday in England the judgment of the Supreme Court on Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox. The family of the British student have decided to stay in London where they live. To represent them in the process is their lawyer in the civil action party, Francesco Maresca, as well as Vieri Fabiani. The latter, for technical reasons, replaces the lawyer Serena Perna at the judgment of the Supreme Court.

“We expect a clear judgment - said their lawyer Maresca - allowing to assess again, this time in points of law, the work of the Court of Appeals. In our view, this second-level judgment was full of factual flaws, not to be evaluated at the Supreme Court level, as well as evident and significant legal flaws."

We are sure that there will be a clear judgment, as it rather did not happen at the appeal [level]. Where - said the lawyer Maresca - the judgment was neither transparent nor clear."

High Court To Rule On Meredith Kercher Case
By Andrea Vogt

This crucial hearing marks a critical phase for one of Europe’s longest-running, highest-profile murder trial sagas. If Cassation upholds the appeals court acquittal, the case is forever closed and they are declared officially innocent at the highest and most definitive level of the Italian judiciary. That’s the outcome Knox is hoping for, as are her lawyers (one of whom, Luciano Ghirga, also celebrates his 68th birthday on Monday). If the court does not uphold the appeals court decision, there are a number of ways the decision can play out. The court could find fault in application of law, annul the appeals decision for acquittal, triggering a retrial in Florence, which is what the Kerchers are hoping for.

Or, the court could just partially agree with any number of points in the various arguments that have been filed – they have wide interpretive berth in formulating their response.

Knox must wait 1 more day for Italy court decision
By Frances D'Emilio

Italian prosecutors have asked the high court to throw out the acquittals of Knox and Sollecito in the murder of 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher and order a new trial.

Riello, the prosecutor general, argued before the court that there were ample reasons "not to bring down the curtain on the case."

Riello said the appellate court was too dismissive in casting aside DNA evidence that led to the conviction in the lower court, arguing that another trial could make way for more definitive testing.

PG's Request: Condemn/Convict Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito

Translation: Google + Guermantes
Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.net/viewtopic.php?p=105681#p105681

Convict Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito: this is the meaning of the request made ​​by the Prosecutor General of the Supreme Court, Luigi Riello, re the appellate decision that acquitted the two youths. The appeal was made in the indictment in the Supreme Court.

Riello said in the second trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher "the trial court has lost its compass." "The judgment of the Court of Appeal of Perugia is a rare combination of violations of law and logic and I think it must be undone."

The Prosecutor has accused the college of judges of the second degree of "shattering the circumstantial evidence." Riello spoke of a "fair amount of snobbery" of the judges of appeal "in trivializing" the sentence at first instance and "reducing it to four reasons." He then called the slander of Patrick Lumumba the "key point".

Prosecutors argued that the independent review of key DNA during the appeal, which blasted the prosecution's case and proved a turning point for Knox -- "was used like a final word" and covered up all other evidence.

Amanda Knox lawyer confident before Italian appeal ruling

Both Knox's lawyer Luciano Ghirga and Sollecito's lawyer Giulia Bongiorno said they were confident the 2011 verdict clearing their clients would be upheld by the court, which will rule only on procedural issues, not on questions of merit.

"There seems to be very little criticism of the technical aspects of the trial," said Ghirga.

Prosecutors last year filed a motion to appeal against the acquittal, calling it "contradictory and illogical".

However, Bongiorno said there was little room for the decision to be challenged.

"We have a verdict behind us that is so well-grounded, coherent and logical that we're very calm," she said as she entered the court.

Amanda Knox Lawyer Says Prosecution 'Started With an Error"
By Phoebe Natanson and Nikki Battiste

Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.net/viewtopic.php?p=105736#p105736

Lawyers for Amanda Knox told Italy's Supreme Court that prosecutors who argued today that she should be retried for the murder of her roommate "started with an error and ... continues to insist in the errors."
...
"'This trial started with an error and the prosecution continues to insist in the errors even in an attempt to convince the Supreme Court that the recourse should be accepted," Knox's lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova argued.
...
Bongiorno reminded the court that Knox was not allowed a lawyer during her interrogations, but was allowed a translator, or what she referred to as a "medium" who would "induce [Knox] to remember things." Knox testified in 2009 that the translator encouraged her "to try to remember."

Amanda Knox 'Shocked' By Court Ruling That She Will Be Tried Again for Murder
By Phobe Natanson

Amanda Knox was "shocked" by Italy's Supreme Court ruling today that she must be retried for the 2007 murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher.

The court also refused to vacate her conviction for slander over her identifying her employer, Patrick Lumumba, as the person who killed Kercher. It was a statement, she claims, she made under police duress.

In a statement Knox said the court's decision was "painful" and "completely unfounded and unfair."


ABC NEWS

March 26, 2013 (cont.)

Amanda Knox's statement in full:

'My Family And I Will Face This Battle'

"It was painful to receive the news that the Italian Supreme Court decided to send my case back for revision when the prosecution's theory of my involvement in Meredith's murder has been repeatedly revealed to be completely unfounded and unfair. I believe that any questions as to my innocence must be examined by an objective investigation and a capable prosecution. The prosecution responsible for the many discrepancies in their work must be made to answer for them, for Raffaele's sake, my sake, and most especially for the sake of Meredith's family. Our hearts go out to them. No matter what happens, my family and I will face this continuing legal battle as we always have, confident in the truth and with our heads held high in the face of wrongful accusations and unreasonable adversity."

Quote:
I have read the SC Dispositivo, and in fact it annuls almost entirely Hellmann-Zanetti verdict, but not entirely: it accepts definitively the conviction for calunnia.

It crushed Hellmann's acquittal of K-S on the charges a), b), c), d), e) ; but about Knox's conviction on letter f), it crushed only Hellman's conclusion where he dismissed the aggravating circumstance of continuance, and let the rest of charge f) stand.
So, it accepted Hellmann's conviction for calunnia, and possibly sentencing; it made her guilt become definitive for calunnia.

But still on letter f), the SC crushed the part of Hellmann's conclusion about the "lack of logical link" between calunnia and murder (that is the aggravating circumstance of continuation by art. 61 cpp).

So this SC verdict seems to me extremely negative for Knox and Sollecito.

It seems it could not have been possibly worse.

"We welcome the news in the sense that we hope to find the answers," Kercher's sister Stephanie told Italy's ITV. "We are never going to be happy about any outcome because we have still lost Meredith, but we obviously support the decision and hope to get answers from it."

"There are still so many unanswered questions, all we have ever wanted to do is do what we can for Meredith and to find out the truth of what happened that night."

Experts disagree over extradition for Amanda Knox
By Tom Watkins

But Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said that Italian prosecutors might very well extradite Knox. And, if retried, she "likely will be found guilty -- because the evidence supporting a conviction is pretty strong."
Knox, now 25, has established a fan base in the United States "because she has a beautiful face and an angelic appearance," Dershowitz said. "But remember, she originally admitted she was at the scene of the crime and she tried to blame an innocent man -- for which she was also convicted."

If it does, the U.S. Department of State would then have to decide whether to act on the request. If the State Department chooses to comply, it would then deploy the U.S. Attorney’s Office to a U.S. court to seek Knox’s extradition.

Judge Heavey, who attracted criticism for writing to the Italian authorities about the case while still serving in his role in the US, says he remains convinced the couple are innocent and that the prosecution case is flawed.

When asked if Knox might return to Italy for any part of the new proceedings, he said: "She may. The intelligentsia of Italy knows she is absolutely innocent.

"But a good proportion of the population, because of what's called confirmation bias, what they've been told so many times, they can't tell you why, but they think she's guilty and that is not a healthy climate for her to be in."

"Traces" left by Raffaele Sollecito in Switzerland are clear. The first is to subscribe to the Commercial Register of the Canton of Ticino. Sollecito is, as mentioned, the sole director of a corporation that has as its purpose the promotion and publicizing of public figures including through web and programming aimed at telling the stories "related to real events or pure fantasy." But also "an extensive collection of information on unsolved court cases to arouse new interest on large-scale and provide appropriate skills in various fields (including information) for the resolution of the same." This company is located in a residential building of Aldesago, mountain hamlet of Lugano, above Ruvigliana.

Residence Permit B for Sollecito

Raffaele Sollecito, the twenty-nine year old accused of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, in Perugia in 2007, not only is willing to come and live in Lugano but is already in possession of a residence permit B. "The request has been forwarded in December 2012 - confirms the head of the section of the population, Attilio Cometta - and the permit was issued in the month of January. The fact that the Supreme Court overturned the acquittal of second instance, does not affect his ability to stay in Swiss territory. Against this person a criminal conviction grew final, although the crime may be serious - says Cometta - and for that alone to make a decision to withdraw the permit is not sustainable. Any blockage can arise at this point only if the Italian authorities decide to restrict the movement of the young man, preventing him to stay for a minimum of 6 months in Switzerland as stated in the residence permit B that, in that case, it is therefore be revoked."

Raffaele Sollecito, who is completing a degree in information technology, has registered "Experience Teller" in Switzerland with capital of 100,000 Swiss francs ($100,000), the reports said.

"The idea is to collate large amounts of information on unresolved cases in to provoke large-scale interest and provide relevant consultancy in various fields to resolve them, including through information technology," he said. The revenue would come from selling books and films about the cases."

The Amanda Knox Haters Society: How They Learned to Hate Me Too
By Nina Burleigh

When Italy‘s highest court reversed the acquittal of Amanda Knox and ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito this week, a small cottage industry on the internet began grinding back into high gear. Actually it has never had a down day: the Knox-hating websites have been passing along innuendo and cherry-picked factoids for six years now.

Amanda Knox – Trial by Website
By Phil Locke

But nowadays, there is a new internet-age version of trial by media. I call it “trial by website.” This happens when someone becomes personally dedicated to the guilt or innocence of a particular defendant, and sets up a website to proffer their one-sided views. There are both innocence-based websites and guilt-based websites. However, my observation is that the guilt-based websites are much more vitriolic, and generally based upon much unsubstantiated, or downright false, information.

In the end, the name Patrick Lumumba came from the mouth of Amanda. For that false accusation against him, Amanda was sentenced to 3 years for slander [in fact, for calunnia = obstruction of justice - Z.].
Meager satisfaction for Lumumba who, after his misadventure in court, definitively finished with Italy. He moved to Poland where he found his peace of mind thanks to the love of his wife and children.

Sollecito in Switzerland
Reminder: "I'm fine in Lugano"


Translation: Google

After the hype generated from obtaining the permit B by Raffaele Sollecito, the 29 year-old Italian accused of murdering British student Meredith Kercher, the same Sollecito, interviewed by the CDT, he has reaffirmed that all his papers are in order and that he has never had a false certificate.

"I have never declared false things about my legal situation," said the newcomer to Aldesago. "In Switzerland, I had friends and I found that I liked it, because the people here are generally very discreet."

Sollecito, who also created his own company with the intention of exploiting other cases that remain unsolved, and their stories, in the media, is said to move around a lot for work but spends most of the time at his home on the slopes of Brè. "I want to stay here, in a setting away from an open outcry, and I was very well received."

The Canton, remember, after a parliamentarian Daniel Caverzasio had claimed that the granting of permit B to Sollecito had been regular, but that some checks were made to see if there was a clear case for it to be 'revoked.’ Hypothesis that Sollecito does not believe in, as "I have always told the truth."

His father, Francesco Sollecito, told The Daily Telegraph that despite settling down in Switzerland, his son would be returning for his second appeal, which could be held this year.

A Mother in Limbo

Arline Kercher —the mother of Meredith Kercher, whose 2007 killing in Italy led to the conviction, then acquittal of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito—will soon find herself forced to relive her daughter’s death yet again. That’s because, last month, the highest court in Italy overturned the duo’s acquittal, setting the stage for still more trials in the case. “It is always distressing to hear and read about the murder,” Arline told me by phone from England, where she lives. “We have to brace ourselves for another round of this nightmare.”

Knox Reportedly Reveals Sexual Harassment in Memoir (video)
A British tabloid is reporting that Amanda Knox's memoir says she was harassed while behind bars.

Transcript: http://www.perugiamurderfile.net/viewtopic.php?p=106761#p106761

Inside the hundreds of pages of Amanda Knox's memoir, "Waiting to be Heard", will reportedly be claims by Knox that she was sexually harassed behind bars by prison guard Raffaele Argiro, saying he would summon her for – quote - ‘chitchats’ alone in his office at night. In the book, Knox reportedly expands on letters she wrote to friends obtained by British tabloids, saying the guard was fixated on the topic of sex, asking about her partners and if she would have sex with him. The British tabloid The Daily Mail quotes her as saying, “I was so surprised and scandalized.”
Argiro has since retired and denied the allegations.


GOOD MORNING AMERICA

Flashback to October 5, 2011

Lawyers for Amanda: "She never complained about Inspector Argiro"

Amanda Knox "has never complained about the behavior of the prison inspector Raffaele Argiro" 'and "never mentioned his name" say the defenders of the American, lawyers Carlo Dalla Vedova and Luciano Ghirga, commenting to ANSA as reported today by the tabloid Sun. "In the diary - the Advocate Ghirga said - Amanda never wrote the name Argiro."
"We are grateful to the prison administration of Capanne - said the lawyer Dalla Vedova - for the cooperation given to the needs of the family. Amanda has never reported violations against her. She received absolutely correct treatment and maximum solidarity, respecting the roles, especially in the women's section. "

But you really need a strong stomach to get used to the idea that the girl from Seattle should even be earning millions of dollars with true-story book (“true” in a manner of saying) which rummages in the trash of the Perugia thriller. A literary destiny which associates Amanda with the other key character at the crime scene: that Raffaele Sollecito, author of a another true-story book (once again “true” in a manner of saying).

Amanda Knox's ex Rafaelle Sollecito moves to Switzerland 'because the people are discreet', but insists he will return for retrial
By Hannah Roberts

Sollecito's bags were reportedly packed even before he learnt that he must face retrial for the murder of British exchange student Meredith Kercher. [...] But Sollecito has denied suggestions that he was ‘fleeing’ to Switzerland to avoid the retrial and says he intends to come back to fight his cause.

Ex-Freund von Knox bangt um Schweizer Aufenthaltsbewilligung (in German)

Knox's ex-boyfriend fears for Swiss residence permit

His stay in Switzerland has become a political and legal dispute. The Ticino government must answer questions from the Parliament and the cantonal migration office investigates the case of Sollecito. Sollecito reportedly cheated on his request for obtaining the residence permit B, which is issued to foreigners from the EU / EFTA area for five years.

In his application for the residency permit Sollecito, who now lives in Aldesago in Lugano, answered “No” to the following questions: "Have you ever been convicted?" and “Is there an ongoing criminal proceeding against you" according to local media reports. Sollecito continues to claim that he did not provide any false information about his legal situation to Ticino authorities.

In a recent opinion, the Ticino government writes that the concealment of a pending criminal proceeding could result in revocation of the permit. The Migration Office now runs through investigations on the case of Sollecito as a media spokesperson for the Ticino Security Directorate announced this afternoon at the request of baz.ch / Newsnet. So far there is still no decision.

MOTION TO THE FEDERAL COUNCIL
The systematic request of information on criminal records of EU citizens who ask to move to Switzerland must once again be possible

The case of Raffaele Sollecito, an Italian citizen under investigation for the murder of a British student, Meredith Kercher, has aroused controversy. The Italian press spoke at length of this story, which is also very well known in Italian Switzerland.

Raffaele Sollecito, despite the ongoing trial for murder, got a B permit to reside in Lugano.

Book Review:
In Book, Knox Takes Case to Court of Public Opinion
By Julie Bosman

“Until now I have personally never contributed to any public discussion of the case or of what happened to me,” Ms. Knox, 25, wrote in an author’s note at the end of the book. “While I was incarcerated, my attention was focused on the trial and the day-to-day challenges of life in prison. Now that I am free, I’ve finally found myself in a position to respond to everyone’s questions. This memoir is about setting the record straight.”

Amanda Knox Reveals in Book She Considered Suicide in Prison
By Nikki Battiste

Amanda Knox thought she might rather die than spend another day in prison.
Sitting in her cold, grey prison cell, she even debated how she would end her life.
All she could see were the prison's 60 feet high walls, topped with barbed wire. Isolated and afraid, she watched other inmates through barred glass doors.

Amanda Knox tells People she's sometimes 'paralyzed' with anxiety after slaying, trial
By Associated Press

Amanda Knox says in a new interview that she's sometimes "paralyzed" with anxiety stemming from the death of her roommate in Italy and the trial that saw her convicted, then acquitted, in a case that made headlines across the globe.
Knox recently spoke to People magazine over several days at her mother's home in Seattle.
Knox tells People she is still dealing with difficult emotions. Her full interview will be published in the magazine's April 26 edition.

Amanda Knox Talks for First Time about Agony of Jail, Joys of Freedom

During an emotional, candid and wide-ranging interview, which took place in her mother's Seattle home over several days, Knox, 25, details her odyssey from carefree American college student in Perugia, Italy, to convicted murderer confined to a cell for four years for allegedly killing her roommate, British student Meredith Kercher.

"When Meredith was murdered and I was arrested, it was so shocking. It was paralyzing. Everything toppled," says Knox, who also shares the overwhelming joy of being set free after an appeals court overturned the charges in 2011.

"Things creep up on me and all of a sudden I'm overwhelmed by the feeling of helplessness and that desperation and fear to even hope," she says. "Just that can make my heart race and makes me paralyzed until I can breathe it away."

Meredith: border police investigations on Sollecito

Translation: Jools
Original Post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=131981#p131981

The Procura of Perugia in the past few days have asked the 'Coordination Centre of Customs Police' located in Ponte Chiasso to carry out investigations on the “user’s telephone line” and the “revenue-generating capacity of the company whose director” is Raffaele Sollecito. In the past months, Switzerland had granted a residence permit to the man who will be tried again for the murder of Meredith Kercher after the Supreme Court nullified the decision of the second degree court in which he had been acquitted. Sollecito had submitted an application to pursue activities in Switzerland in the Experience Teller Media and Web Management company set up on November 21, 2012 with registered office in Lugano, of which Sollecito appears as administrator.

B PERMITS - After the Sollecito case, the National Councillor Lorenzo Quadri asks the Federal Council to call for a stop to the reckless issuing of B permits.
The case of the B permit issued to Raffaele Sollecito, in spite of the latter being under investigation in Italy together with Amanda Knox for the murder of the British student Meredith Kercher, has arrived in Bern. [...]
There should not be issuing of B permits to foreign nationals whose exact previous criminal records are not known and any judicial proceedings are on going. God forbid. The request for information to the country of origin must be systematic. At the moment, it is based on self-certification, the reliability of which we can easily imagine...

Raffaele Sollecito claims to have told the truth about his application for permission to stay in Ticino.

"If the conditions for obtaining permit B are those you do not have criminal convictions and criminal proceedings in progress, then I seriously doubt that Raffaele Sollecito has told the whole truth in his self declaration. It's true that last December he had, and still has not, any criminal conviction against him, but the criminal trial was still going on as it lacked the judgment of the Supreme Court, and this was known for several months to all parties involved."

In “Trial by Fury: Internet Savagery and the Amanda Knox Case,” writer Douglas Preston tries to renew prurient pleasure in the case, but his rant, which reads like a “B-minus” at best sociology paper, is less about Knox than the evils of the Internet and the anatomy of online hate communities.

Being talked about is not the same as being liked. The public continues to be confused by this case, even more so now that the Italian courts are retrying it. Amanda Knox still captures headlines, but given her tale of undeserving punishment, there remains an inexplicable lack of sympathy for the young photogenic and educated woman. Part of the PR debate remains stalled in confusion about what really happened that night.

Amanda Knox reiterates innocence as memoir is published
By Rory Carroll

"The most valuable thing that books like Amanda's can do is lay out the reasons why the hysteria over her case was woefully misplaced and bring home to readers the human cost of the miscarriage of justice that she and Raffaele suffered as a result," said Andrew Gumbel, author with Raffaele Sollecito of Honour Bound: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox.
"Many people in Britain are still addicted to the idea that Amanda was guilty, because it makes for a more sensational story. But it is simply not the case, as the factual record makes abundantly clear."

At times there is something childlike about the formerly convicted murderer, who I've been writing to for nearly four years

Over time her letters became more elaborate with fancy twirly handwriting, and a symbol of freedom attached – a bird, a butterfly or flower. She rarely talked about the crime she was convicted of, preferring to focus on the mosquitos in prison, her hippy singing class, playing guitar in church, visits from her grandmother who looked ever more frail, the death of the family dog, volleyball with the girls, studying in the afternoon, her nice cellmate.

Amanda Knox couldn't resist contacting victim's family
By Chelseay Hoffman

It's fortunate that she never actually sent the note to the family of Meredith Kercher, not because it'd make her look guilty but because it'd really be a waste of their time and emotions. These people are in a permanent state of despair over what happened to Meredith, and no amount of self-serving notes written by one of the suspects will likely make it better.

Amanda Knox's interview with Diane Sawyer went as planned and is expected to air on the 30th, so here's to hoping she'll actually look directly at the camera while answering questions through the whole thing. In the promo shots of her (pictured with this article) she doesn't appear to be able to make direct eye contact."

Though The New Yorker’s Rebecca Mead disdains the “slut shaming” Knox experienced in the press (the fact that Knox owned a vibrator and purchased condoms were petty details repeated over and over), she then describes Knox’s active sex life as a “dispiriting account of prevailing mores." Mead is primly upset by the fact that Knox wanted to have sex uncoupled from feelings.

The comparison Mead makes to Portrait of a Lady does something to honor Knox's own desires and agency as she set out for Italy, but then the knife turns, and it turns on the question of Knox's attitude about sex.

Sam Leith: It’s Amanda Knox’s right to tell her side of the story

By publishing her memoir, Knox is taking ownership of her story and is refusing to fit the roles that others impose on her

Is it seemly that Amanda Knox should make millions of dollars out of her memoir Waiting To Be Heard? Meredith Kercher lies dead. Is this not a cash-in; an insult to her memory? Well, she won’t be the first person to have made money out of Kercher’s death. A lot of lawyers have been compensated, a lot of newspapers sold, a lot of “friends” paid off and a lot of books have come out: such sober contributions to the historical record as Death in Perugia, The Fatal Gift of Beauty, Trial by Fury, Angel Face, Darkness Descending and The Monster of Perugia.

Headline after headline labeled Knox a sexual thrill-seeker, a seductress and a murderer.

In an exclusive interview, Knox told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer that while she’d heard the gist of the things circulated about her – “American temptress,” “she-devil with an angel face,” “heartless manipulator,” “concertante of sex” and “sphinx of Perugia” – they were all wrong.

Kercher family 'won't read Amanda Knox book'

Meredith Kercher's sister on Tuesday said she and her family will not read the book Amanda Knox wrote on her experience being tried for her murder. "We're not interested in this book, just like we weren't interested in the others about the case, and we won't read it," said Stephanie Kercher. 'Waiting to be Heard' is the book Knox wrote on her experience of the Italian justice system, which was released Tuesday.

"We are not interested in this book just like so many others about the case and we will not read it," Stephanie Kercher said. She also stressed that Miss Knox could be found guilty by a fresh trial due to begin in Florence later this year.

"The Italian legal system still has an appeal procedure under way and so the case is returning to a new court hearing. The sentence can still be overturned," Stephanie Kercher said.

"I have no doubts that on the other side there is a story of pain and loss and enormous mistrust but in the end it is also one of hope and the opportunity to live life.

“Something Meredith will never have and something we can never share with her. Meredith is the victim in this tragic case."

By Josephine McKenna

Another journalist who covered Knox's trial had a mixed reaction to how she described her experiences in her new book.

"Mostly it seems like just more sanitized spin, although a few passages about coping in prison did reflect a more introspective side than most have seen," said Andrea Vogt, an Italy-based journalist who covered the trials for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

"I think some of her prison allegations warrant further investigation by authorities, but on the hard case facts, there were some discrepancies that contradict the existing case records," Vogt added.

Knox will give her first live interview Wednesday on Good Morning America.
And, still more of the interview will be featured Wednesday on World News Tonight.
Including the pre-interview teases, ABC will have featured Knox no less than six times in three days.

Book Excerpt: Amanda Knox Shares Intimate Details About Personal Life in 'Waiting to Be Heard'

ABC NEWS

Amanda Knox and prison life
By Andrea Vogt

Knox's memoir is a vivid personal account of the difficulties of prison life in Italy, complete with claims about inappropriate behaviour by staff. But Knox herself once painted a different picture.

Other documents - including writings Knox penned in her own hand while incarcerated, case files and state department records - conjure up quite another impression of a very different Knox, one who was more sanguine about her experience.

What Amanda Knox can and can't tell us
By Nina Burleigh

Knox has a terribly high hurdle in winning hearts and minds.
She must overcome the challenge that confronts anyone convicted of a gruesome killing and then released without a substitute defendant. Millions of people believe she got away with murder.
Even in tears, she comes across as remote and cool. And years of coaching by attorneys still haven't prevented her from saying tone-deaf things such as expressing a desire to visit Kercher's grave.

In her only New Zealand broadcast interview, Amanda Knox told Radio New Zealand's Nine to Noon programme on Thursday that all the DNA evidence from the crime scene points to him {Rudy Guede].
"There is a lot of DNA evidence in this case and it all belongs to Rudy Guede. There is no DNA trace of me in that crime scene."
Ms Knox also describes her four years spent in an Italian jail and says she knows people still think she is guilty.
"What I want is for people to judge me on the correct information and I want people to understand where I'm coming from. And I hope that in reading my book people will get a better sense of who I am as opposed to how I've been portrayed in the media so far."

Sexism and the Single Murderess
By Frank Bruni

“SEX game gone wrong,” “sex game gone awry,” “sex-mad flatmate,” “sex-crazed killer.”

That’s from just the first three minutes of the ABC News special on Amanda Knox last week, a veritable drumbeat of sexual shaming that leaves no doubt about what elevated a college student accused of murder into an object of international fascination, titillation and scorn.

It wasn’t the crime itself. It was the supposed conspiracy of her libido, cast as proof that she was out of control, up to no good, lost, wicked, dangerous. A girl this intent on randy fun was a girl who couldn’t be trusted and got what was coming to her, even if it was prison and even if there was plenty of reason — as the eventual reversal of her initial conviction made clear — to believe that she might not belong there.

I guarded Amanda Knox for two years - and she never talked about Meredith... or cried.
She was like an Ice Queen

By Sharon Feinstein

Today, she is an innocent woman; but to those who were with her in Cappane (sic), she remained an enigma until the moment when, amid turbulent scenes at the Perugia courthouse, she was acquitted.
‘Even when she was released, she didn’t say goodbye to a single person in the prison,’ recalled Antonelli.
‘In my opinion she showed no compassion or sensitivity to others. She just walked out.
'Is that human?’

Reviews of Amanda Knox's book Waiting to be Heard:

May 5, 2013 (cont.)

Book review:
Waiting to be Heard: A Memoir by Amanda Knox
By John Follain

Amanda Knox’s account of her trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher in 2007 is intimate but leaves many questions unanswered

This has to be a rarity in the annals of a crime — an account by a “protagonist” who has been convicted of murder and then acquitted, but who remains convicted of slandering an innocent man. And she is now awaiting a retrial for murder. As such, Amanda Knox’s memoir will likely become evidence in court. Small wonder the UK publisher HarperCollins has decided, for legal reasons, not to publish Waiting to Be Heard here, even though it has just come out in America after Knox was paid a reported $4m.

Waiting to Be Heard: A memoir by Amanda Knox – review

Book Review:
Waiting to be Heard – Amanda Knox
By unavitavagabonda

All in all, Waiting to be Heard is neither especially gripping nor notably eloquent, but it does bear all the earmarks of having been edited with extreme precision. Given that the publisher paid Knox $4 million, it’s not surprising that they took good care with her book, nor is it surprising that a manuscript that must have passed through the hands of a dozen lawyers on both sides of the Atlantic is both frustratingly vague (about matters that matter a great deal) and oddly detailed (about matters that are essentially trivial).


UNA VITA VAGABONDA

Amanda Knox's memoir on trial
By Olivia Cole

Waiting to be Heard is either a slightly stupid book or a very clever one that knows simplicity is the best defence. There is also, it has to be said, the question of how much help Knox had with the manuscript and indeed making her version cohesive? Though she is now studying creative writing (her original ambition back in 2007) and the book appears under her name alone, a Huffington Post journalist is credited fulsomely in her notes of thanks: "I wouldn't have been able to write this memoir without Linda Kulman. Somehow, with her Post-It notes and questions, with her generosity, dedication, and empathy, she turned my ramblings into writing, and taught me so much in the meantime. I am grateful to her family - Ralph, Sam, Julia - for sharing her with me for so long." Again, if she had serious help in making her version water-tight, this is - again - a naive piece of information to have included.

The sorry tale of Amanda Knox
By Megan Nicol Reed

And now I've read her book, Waiting to Be Heard. And on Thursday morning, on the eve of the book's publication in New Zealand, I spoke to the now 25-year-old on the phone. And I am sure she is innocent. A victim of a most heinous miscarriage of justice.

Now I'm ashamed, as a journalist and as a feminist, that I was sucked in by the spin of a media hungry for lewd news, by the misogyny of a culture where traditionally women are either Madonna or whore, and there is no place for anyone in between.

I know, too, that one person's "quirky" (as Knox's friends describe her) is another person's deviant (as the Italian police, then the prosecution and finally the media would tar her).

Factcheck: Waiting to be Heard (must read)
By Andrea Vogt

I am also releasing two handwritten letters from my own case files (which contain both official court documents as well as documents I have obtained that were not necessarily entered into evidence) that Amanda Knox wrote to her lawyers from jail.


First Knox Letter to Lawyers Nov 9

Second Knox Letter to Lawyers Nov 9

Transcripts of the two letters: THE MURDER OF MEREDITH KERCHER

The letters reveal some discrepancies with the memoir. For example, in letter 1, Knox says she looked through the keyhole of Meredith’s locked door and could see her bed, with Meredith’s purse on it. In Chapter 6 of her memoir she said she tried to look through the keyhole, but saw nothing. In the letter she describes the “bathmat shuffle” in which she scooted on the bathmat with the bloody footprint into her room, then brought it back. This is not referenced in the memoir. In the letter, she says she and Raffaele were in the kitchen when Meredith’s door was broken down, but her description in chapter six of memoir makes no reference to being in the kitchen. She tells her lawyers the police “gave me time” to write a statement, while in chapter 11 of her memoir she says the police officer said “you’d better write fast.”

Italians ask: Can Americans get away with murder?
By Barbie Latza Nadeau

It could be years before a final decision is reached in the Knox case, and undoubtedly Knox's legal team would fight extradition on every level if her conviction is upheld. In the meantime, Italians assume Knox will never set foot in Italy again, whether she is ultimately found responsible of Kercher's murder or not.
"She will never come back here, whether she should legally or not," the Kercher family lawyer Francesco Maresca told CNN. "There are too many case precedents that clearly show America does not easily surrender its criminals."

Amanda Knox dubbed 'The Ice Queen' -- Does this indicate guilt?
By Chelsea Hoffman

Amanda Knox has famously been known for acting awkward and saying awkward things over the course of her ridiculous saga. Most recently she voiced that she'd like to visit Meredith Kercher's grave someday. The UK Mirror shares this hard-to-stomach detail, as well as the clip of Foxy Knoxy dramatically voicing her version of the story in a recently televised interview. It probably wasn't the best thing for Knox to say considering Meredith's family still strongly believe that she was involved in the girl's murder.

CNN teaser 1: Amanda Knox: 'I'm afraid to go back' to Italy

Amanda Knox says she's scared to return to Italy to face a new trial nearly six years after her study-abroad roommate's slaying. But she's considering it.

"In Italy," she told CNN's Chris Cuomo, "people think it's arrogant of me to sit here in the United States and have a book come out and to defend myself."

CNN teaser 2: Amanda Knox: 'There's no evidence against me'

In a wide-ranging interview with multiple new developments, Amanda Knox sits down with CNN’s Chris Cuomo to answer tough questions about the case against her and retrial, theories of Italian police and prosecutors, ongoing emotional distress and what she says is the need to protect herself. Knox defends her behavior immediately following the crime, which many have pointed to as the reason for their suspicions, and details her continuing efforts to try to understand and reach out to the family of Meredith Kercher.

The 90 minute CNN broadcast “Amanda Knox: The Unanswered Questions,” a special interview with Chris Cuomo, airs Tuesday, May 7th at 10:30pm ET on CNN.

Amanda Knox: By the Book

Which authors do you most admire?

Vladimir Nabokov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Foster Wallace. . . . I like authors who experiment with narrative and delve into very specific conditions within their characters in order to expose universal truths about humanity. After reading, I like to feel that I’ve experienced, learned, identified, been challenged and been provided with insight.

Is Amanda Knox lying about crime scene again?
By Chelsea Hoffman

Amanda Knox says she's afraid of some of the "strange people" who are fixated on her, and that she doesn't know what they'll do if she goes back to Italy. Could she be talking about the people in Europe who believe the evidence against her and that she's guilty? Or could she be talking about the increasingly obsessed fan base she has garnered over the many years this case has spanned? This case has certainly sparked a lot of passion on both sides, with the discussion sites in support of her often displaying violent rhetoric against people who believe she was involved in the murder of Meredith Kercher -- and that is just shameful.

CHRIS CUOMO, ANCHOR (voice-over): Tonight, Amanda Knox put to the test.

...Hello, everyone. I'm Chris Cuomo in New York. Tonight, we ask Amanda Knox the questions that go to the heart of why people doubt her so vehemently. She will reveal new information about her actions, about the investigation and what has happened to her since returning home after four years in an Italian prison.

Quote:
Thanks for all the interest in the Amanda Knox intv. You are all free to judge her and me but allow a little context. The allegations about her sexuality have not been proven in court. In fact, there was almost no proof offered to support prosecutors' theories abt "deviance gone terribly wrong". Also, how someone reacts after a crime or with police is not a great basis for judging criminality.

Most of you know me and my work and to some i seemed unusually aggressive. But to be clear, Knox came to me because after the first wave of media she felt there was still a need to face the tough questions and points that fuel doubt abt her. That was the intv I promised her. It would have been easier for me to mix soft balls and hard balls but i wanted to give her the chance to respond to the worst of what is out there. If people, after hearing the tough questions and the accusations that are certainly out there about her ( nothing I asked was created by me as an idea/ all were criticisms or conjecture from media or prosecutors ), if people feel her answers were better than the questions , then i did my job. I am satisfied with criticism of style if it evoked a fair appraisal of Knox.

Again, you all are free and encouraged to judge the answers and the questions as u see fit, but just know there was a promise of format and intent, and the promise was kept. One of the first people to contact me after the interview was Amanda Knox and she said thank you for the opportunity to take on the tough stuff.

Memoir, „Zeit, gehört zu werden“ ("Waiting to be Heard")

Innocent in jail? - Amanda Knox's story of a naive bimbo (Book review, in German) - 2 pages
By Fabienne Rzitki

"Matching" answers and contradictions
Accusations and suitable answers: The picture that Amanda Knox paints in her 502-page memoir, is contradictory.
...
Amanda's version raises doubts
The American strives hard to set up her character the halo of naivete, but the thoroughly constructed picture has cracks.
...
Anyone who enters into Amanda's world of thoughts, experiences the American's story as stained and pathetic. It is suspect that she has ready and all too appropriate answers regarding evidence against her: Her blood at the crime scene - Apparently it was due to her eleven ear piercings; Traces of Raffaele on Meredith's bra - Contamination by the police; Fingerprints on the knives - The Police has asked her to touch/handle them during an interrogation (?); An SMS to her boss - She had incorrectly translated it into Italian; Buying lingerie after the murder - She had nothing to wear.

In the end, doubts remain about the version of the 25-year-old, but also in regards of the Italian judiciary, which will deal with Amanda Knox again soon. The acquittal has been annulled in the meantime.

The Seattle college student who spent four years in an Italian jail before her conviction in her roommate’s murder was overturned was a guest at a Time Warner screening of “The Great Gatsby” held at the MPAA’s offices near the White House. At her side: Bob Barnett, the Beltway superlawyer who represented her through negotiations for her $4 million book deal.

Now 25, Knox was poised and friendly as she was introduced around a room that included a mix of Time Warner luminaries (CNN’s John King, Gloria Borger, Jim Acosta) and political types (Heather Podesta, Mike Berman and Hilary Rosen).

Opinion: Amanda Knox Memoir, Truth Or Fiction?
By Norm Pattis

Is she telling the truth? I can't tell. She says all the right things in her book. She has an innocent explanation for every damning fact. The book addresses all the things her critics throw at her: she cares about the victim's family; she was not flip, just scared; her sexual explorations were simply the pose of a 19-year-old experimenting with visions of adulthood. And as to her confession, it is exactly the testimony I would want a client to give if I were claiming that a confession was coerced and unreliable.

The book is perfect, all too perfect.
...
I imagined Ms. Knox's prosecutors reading her memoirs with a simmering rage. She has all the answers. Each and every one. It's almost too good to be true, unless, of course, it is true. In that case, reality is stranger than fiction. I just can't tell.

Perugia Prosecutor Files Complaint After Knox Memoir Passages Appear in Italy
By Andrea Vogt

The prosecutor in the Amanda Knox case has filed a complaint against the Italian magazine OGGI for publishing bits of Amanda Knox’s memoir in Italy containing what he says are slanderous and false claims.

Reached for comment in Perugia, magistrate Giuliano Mignini confirmed he filed the complaint Thursday after phrases from Knox’s “Waiting to be Heard” were quoted in the Italian gossip magazine “Oggi” on Wednesday. He said he has not read Knox’s memoir (not available in Italy) but felt compelled to defend his professional reputation after portions of it were translated and published in Italian for the first time in the widely-read gossip magazine.

The 8-page complaint is addressed to the Prosecutor’s Office in Bergamo (near Milan), where the headquarters of the magazine are located. It cites as slanderous the suggestion that Knox was illegally interrogated and maintains that there is no trial or investigation documentation supporting a number of “affirmations that were never made.”

Amanda Knox faces libel trial over memoir
By John Follain

Amanda Knox faces a possible libel trial over her memoir Waiting to Be Heard, which has shot to the top of the best-seller lists in America.

Giuliano Mignini, the prosecutor who investigated Knox for the murder of Meredith Kercher, an exchange student from Coulsdon, Surrey, told the Sunday Times he had decided to sue the Italian magazine Oggi after it published extracts from Knox’s book last week.

Mignini said he had filed an open lawsuit against the editor of Oggi and the journalist who wrote an article. He said it would also target Knox, 25, if he determined the extracts did indeed feature in her book. Mignini said he had not yet obtained a copy of the book, for which Knox was paid a reported $4m.

Readers Are Bothered by ... an Amanda Knox Feature
By Margaret Sullivan

Amanda Knox’s “By the Book” Feature. Jeff Dow of Waterloo, Iowa, was more tactful than many others in his comment on this feature in the Times Book Review on Sunday. He wrote: “I was surprised the Sunday Book Review chose Amanda Knox for the author profile. Not the type of author I expect from The Times.”
...
Pamela Paul, the newly appointed editor of the Book Review, responded to my question as follows:
..."Ms. Knox, as a person whose life was so often in the public eye even as her private life remained unknown, struck us as an interesting choice. What a person chooses to read in prison is, of course, a perennially fascinating subject, and while other media outlets explored different aspects of Ms. Knox’s life and legal case, we thought readers of the Book Review might be interested in learning about this side of her."

David Marriott talks about his PR campaign for Knox:

The Amanda Knox Story: How did this happen and the role of the media

In December 2009, an Italian court-backed by the international court of public opinion-convicted Seattle college student Amanda Knox of the heinous murder of her roommate. In 2011, her conviction was overturned, and in March of this year, Italy's Court of Cassation decided to return the appeal decision back to a lower court for review. Knox, whose book, "Waiting to be Heard" was just released, spent four years in prison, the victim of an overzealous, sensation-seeking media, police error and judicial failing. David Marriott, partner at Gogerty Marriott who has worked with Amanda and her family since she was arrested, will present "The Amanda Knox Story: How did this happen and the role of the media" on Tuesday, May 14.

"There's Guede's hand print, there's his footprint, there's his DNA on Meredith's body. This makes me think that he acted alone ... Of course Meredith had struggled, but what could she do against an armed man? Rudy is athletic, not small. Mez was small, would have weighed 54 kilos: what good could karate have done her? Against a knife-wielding man like Guede, she would have had no chance." Says Amanda Knox, who will be back on trial in Perugia for the murder of Meredith Kercher, in an exclusive interview with the weekly magazine "Oggi".

Amanda Knox's Memoir "May Be Evidence Against Her"
By Linda Fairstein

Linda Fairstein, author and America's foremost legal expert on sex crimes, gives us five reasons why Knox's book may get her into trouble

The timeline Knox tried to establish for the night of the crime is belied by the fact that Sollecito's computer was shut off at 9:10pm and not used again all night. Similarly, in activity quite different than their usage in the preceding week, both cellphones were shut off from 8:40pm until 6am. The prosecution apparently made important use of this fact, while Knox offers no logical explanation to us here.
...
Throughout the long narrative in this book, Amanda Knox manages to blame just about everyone in her orbit for the position in which she found herself, charged with the murder of a housemate. It's the other occupants of the house, casual acquaintances, just about every police official trying to solve the brutal crime, prosecutors and court officials.

Amanda Knox Acquits Herself Well in New Book
By Larry Bodine

Was Amanda Knox naïve before she was arrested for murder in Italy? Yes. Was her behavior often flaky, clueless and inappropriate for her situation? Yes. Was her youthful attractiveness a liability with the media and at trial? Maybe. Was she a killer who stabbed her roommate? No way.
...
“I kept ending up in situations I didn’t want to be in,” she says early on, which it explains a lot. She was naïve, quirky, goofy, immature and childlike – all of which led the bungling Italian police to suspect her and to coerce a false confession out of her after an all-night inquisition.

Amanda Knox broke up with Raffaele Sollecito 'because he undermined alibi'
By Nick Squires

The fact that Mr Sollecito undermined her alibi had been a tremendous shock, Miss Knox said in an interview with Oggi, an Italian weekly magazine.

"It was a shock for me. A shock that, combined with the fact that after they put us in prison we couldn't communicate for a while, ended my feelings for him. In jail I had to concentrate on surviving, I had to put love and romance aside," Miss Knox, 25, said.
...
She said she would like to write more books "because my financial future is very uncertain". She wants to pay back the estimated $1.5 million her parents spent in hiring lawyers and travelling between the US and Italy during her incarceration.

‘I am not going to change my story’ over wave of Italian defamation suits: Amanda Knox

Her book, which earned her an advance of almost $4-million, also risks inflaming Italian public opinion, offending the nation’s judges and triggering a wave of new defamation actions by the police and prosecutors she accuses of framing her.

“People asked me if I would change the book and I said absolutely not … I am not going to change my story just because someone is threatening to sue me but I mean … it sucks. It sucks and it sucks.”
...
Her advance from HarperCollins has been largely swallowed up by legal fees and the debt of about $1.5-million she says her family ran up supporting her in Perugia; the retrial will mean more legal fees. “I don’t know what I am going to do. The future is very unsure for me financially.”

Dismal sales of Perugia memoir leave Amanda Knox in a fix
By Andrea Vogt

Not only have American sales of Waiting to be Heard fallen far short of expectation – only 36,000 copes have sold from an announced initial print run of 750,000 – but any hopes for a global bestseller have evaporated.

Last year, the Associated Press reported that Knox's book deal was worth $4 million for world rights...
...
Knox received a $1.5 million advance for the book, but as lawyers' bills continue to mount, the cash is apparently not stretching far.

Amanda Knox Speaks

Given the highly publicized nature of the trial of Amanda Knox and Rafaelle Sollecito, it can be difficult to review this book without pontificating on Knox’s integrity. I have already read a number of “reviews” written by people who clearly did not read the book and used the book review as a platform to condemn. My approach in reading this, since I am an international educator who has worked with study abroad students for years, was to hear Ms. Knox’s side of the story.

Crisis Communications in the International Spotlight – The Amanda Knox Story

Date: Tuesday, June 18 at 10 a.m. PDT
To register for this free event, please click here.

The global media interest in Amanda Knox is evident when a Google search on her name yields more than 32 million results. It began in December 2009 when an Italian court – backed by the international court of public opinion – convicted the Seattle college student of the murder of her roommate in Perugia, Italy. Knox spent four years in prison, the victim of an overzealous, sensation-seeking media, police error and judicial failing. Her book detailing her experience, “Waiting to be Heard” was just released. Throughout this ordeal, crisis communications expert David Marriott, partner at Gogerty Marriott in Seattle, worked with Amanda Knox and her family as they navigated the murky waters of the media frenzy that surrounded them.

Join Angee Linsey, of Linsey Careers, as she speaks with David Marriott who will describe how he used crisis management techniques to help the Knox family manage international media interest and build public awareness of her innocence.

Conversations with Communicators is a free webinar series hosted by Linsey Careers...

Kercher sister to award Meredith scholarship Tuesday [June 4]

British student Olivia Taylor first recipient

The sister of Meredith Kercher will be in Perugia Tuesday to hand out the first scholarship from a fund set up in her name by the Umbrian city and university she was studying at when she was murdered in 2007. "The city won't forget Meredith," Mayor Wladimiro Boccali said Friday. Stephanie Kercher will award the scholarship to British student Olivia Taylor at a ceremony with the mayor and the head of Perugia's famous University for Foreigners. "The scholarship finally lets us remember Meredith outside the lawcourts," Kercher family lawyer told ANSA.

The ceremony will take place on Tuesday at 11 AM in the Red Room of Palazzo dei Priori. In addition to Stephanie Kercher will be present the Mayor Wladimiro Boccali and Olivia Taylor, the student who will be awarded the scholarship. At the ceremony will be participating the rector of the University for Foreigners Giovanni Paciullo and President of the Adisu Marzio Oliviero.

Palazzo dei Priori instead takes charge of air travel expenses from London to Perugia and back, while the ADISU provides the stay accommodation in one of the residence halls and guaranties meals at one of the cafeterias. “The city does not forget Meredith - said Mayor Boccali - and to honor her memory we chose an initiative aimed at the student world of which she was part of. We like to think of Meredith as a girl who had come to Perugia to study and she loved the city. This is also an opportunity to reiterate the closeness of Perugia people to the Kercher family.”

Meredith Kercher award won by London student
By Tom Kington

At a ceremony attended by Kercher's sister Stephanie, Olivia Taylor, 19, was awarded the bursary – which covers flights to Italy for a British student, lodging and tuition at Perugia's School for Foreigners.
"Now I want to study like Meredith did, to remember her," said Miss Taylor.
"It's the first time I've been here for a happy event," said Stephanie Kercher.

Scholarship awarded in the name of Meredith Kercher
By Lizzy Davies

The sister of murdered student Meredith Kercher returned to Perugia "with mixed emotions" on Tuesday to award a scholarship set up in honour of the 21-year-old, who was killed at the start of an exchange programme in the Italian hill-top town.

Stephanie Kercher said the scholarship, which will cover two months of classes for a British student at the local University for Foreigners, was a "lovely idea" and fitting tribute to her sister, who was just weeks into her course in 2007 when she was found dead in the cottage she shared with Amanda Knox.

Meredith Kercher scholarship awarded in Perugia

Briton gets first grant honouring student slain in 2007

"Meredith's murder is a wound that will never be healed in the hearts of Perugians where Mez will always be, along with a sense of impotence at not having been able to defend her," Mayor Wladimiro Boccali said.


GAZZETTA DEL SUD

Scholarship in memory of Mez. Sister Stephanie: "For the first time in Perugia for a joyous event"

Message from the British ambassador. The mayor has received a message from the UK Ambassador to Italy, Christopher Prentice: "The Kercher family, Meredith's friends, and all those whose lives she's touched, do not need an occasion to remember. She will always be with them. But the creation of a generous scholarship in her name by the authorities in Perugia allow other young British women to study and appreciate Perugia, a city that Meredith loved, and to know the hospitality of Italy, a country Meredith so enjoyed visiting."

"It is difficult to even talk about forgiveness when there is no truth.” Said an emotional Stephanie Kercher, in Perugia this morning in the City during the award of the scholarship in honor of her sister Meredith, who was killed in Perugia in 2007, speaking of the legal proceedings of Amanda and Raffaele. “It's the first time I come to Perugia for a happy event - said Stephanie, accompanied by lawyers Francesco Maresca and Serena Perna -, I'm happy for the people that Olivia (the young Londoner who won the scholarship, ed) will encounter here in Perugia, I'm glad of this happy remembrance moment for Meredith.”

Trials. But beyond the happy event today, for Stephanie and for the Kercher family, Perugia and Italy mean the murder of their lovely Meredith and trials that seem to go on. The new trial before the Assize Court of Appeal of Florence will kick off in September after the Supreme Court canceled and deferred the acquittal of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito in the second degree.

Italian criminal trials: light and shadows

One of the benefits of the Italian trial process is that the appeal court reviews both facts and findings of the law for those wanting to prove their innocence. In adversarial systems, such as in the United States, trials can only be appealed on narrow questions of the law, not on fact, and claims of innocence are not considered constitutional questions. As in the Knox trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher, the criminal trial is not the last chance to provide or contest evidence against the accused. The case is not over, as it may have been in the American adversarial system.

Book review:
Bloody Abroad
Amanda Knox Finds Herself

By Merve Emre

To the Italian prosecutors and criminal psychologists who put her behind bars, Knox was worse than the average Pilgrim daughter enjoying her junior year abroad. Her unfettered libido, her self-proclaimed urge to “do what every American girl does” in Italy and “get fucked up,” was all the more damning because she was a bonafide “graphomaniac.” Or, in plain speak, a compulsive writer who nursed a pathological sense of narrative entitlement. Knox chronicled her dangerous liaisons abroad in a handwritten journal, a Myspace blog, and letters to her family and friends. In an interview with Burleigh, an anonymous friend explained that Knox perceived her life in Italy as an ongoing story of which she was simultaneously the author and protagonist. Knox’s belief in her life’s narrative telos was an aesthetic commitment that rendered her, to the outside world, both naïve and narcissistic.

Amanda Knox: From DNA Error to DNA Exoneration
Top Forensic DNA Expert Dr. Greg Hampikian to Speak at 11th Armenian Medical World Congress

In the recent high profile Italian court case, college students Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of murder based on two pieces of DNA evidence. Upon appeal, Greg Hampikian, Ph.D., Professor of Biology and Criminal Justice at Boise State University (BSU) and forensic DNA expert, reanalyzed the DNA evidence and concluded it was likely contaminated and unreliable. Amanda and Raffaele are now free in part because of Dr. Hampikian’s work.

Dr. Hampikian will be speaking on “Amanda Knox: From DNA Error to DNA Exoneration,” at the 11th Armenian Medical World Congress in July in Los Angeles. “As our instruments get more and more sensitive, we need to be ever more careful about contamination,” states Dr. Hampikian. “In Amanda’s case we were able to show that the DNA evidence against her was unreliable, but it leaves you wondering how many other cases of DNA false-convictions there are.”

The View: Amanda Knox Acquittal Overturned & Waiting to be Heard Memoir

While on The View, Knox said she is doing better than she was before but she is still scared because she doesn’t know what will happen. She has a new trial she has to deal with but for months she has not been able to find out why she is being charged again.

“I should not have been convicted in the first place. It is known who committed this murder,” said Knox, pointing out the man who was charged with the murder admits to being in the apartment but not to committing the murder.

Knox’s mother, Edda Mellas, who was on The View with her, said her daughter did not directly confess to the murder but it was a night of confusion. The police were calling her daughter a liar when she wouldn’t confess and they were harassing her to tell them “the truth.”

“I was in a very vulnerable state. I did not understand what the police wanted from me. I did not understand what was happening,” said Knox.

The View gave Knox the chance to say something to Kercher’s family.

“I am so sorry for what happened and sorry for how the murder keeps being dug up,” said Knox.

She added that she wants what really happened to be acknowledged. Even though they have charged someone with the murder, she wants the government to stop retrying the case. She wants it to end with the murderer locked up and everyone moving on with their lives.

Reminder: No Residence in Switzerland
"Ticino doesn't want Sollecito." Return to Italy.

Translation: The 411
Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=136894#p136894

BRESCIA - After finding "refuge" in Lugano, it appears that Raffaele Sollecito is [now] forced to return to Italy. Obviously, this is not a voluntary choice, but [one] dictated by the decision not to give a "B" Swiss Residence Permit to the [man who is a] suspect in the murder of Meredith: a decision which Mr. Sollecito has decided not to oppose.

In Aldesago, a small village near Lugano, Sollecito had founded a company 'aimed at storytelling, based on true events, or fantasy. (Italian: "fantasia")
But his self-declaration concerning his prior criminal record, taken in consideration by the Permit Office, was incomplete. It is precisely for this reason that Sollecito will be forced to leave Switzerland, to return, perhaps, to Italy, where he risks imprisonment.


LEGGO

For Raffaele Sollecito no more residence in the Canton of Ticino

Translation: Jools
Original post: http://www.perugiamurderfile.org/viewtopic.php?p=136928#p136928

The Swiss authorities have revoked the permit of residence in Ticino to Raffaele Sollecito, the young man convicted, acquitted and now awaiting a new trial for the death of British student Meredith Kercher in Perugia seven years ago [sic].

The news was confirmed in the afternoon by the police department of Bellinzona.

DOCUMENTATION "INCOMPLETE" - Sollecito last December had obtained a residence permit in the municipality of Aldesago, near Lugano; there he also founded a company, the Experience Teller, for the production of screenplays. It seemed that Sollecito had chosen Switzerland to rebuild a life after his judicial mishaps. His presence in Ticino, however, had aroused the doubts of the “Ticino League” so the member of the [political] movement, Daniel Caverzasio, tabled a question to demand if the Italian man possessed all the necessary requirements to obtain the residence in Switzerland. And precisely from these follow-up inspections it emerged that Sollecito had submitted incomplete documentation regarding his own pending legal matters.

THE PROCESS - The man, as is known, had been acquitted on appeal but after the Supreme Court ordered a new trial the former student is again awaiting trial. Following the revocation of the permit Sollecito must therefore leave Aldesago and return to Italy.

By Hannah Roberts

Sollecito’s father, Francesco Sollecito, condemned the decision, saying it amounted to ‘a moral and social lynching of someone who has been found not guilty.’
He said: ‘The town of Lugano has missed a good opportunity to show fairness to someone who has always been innocent and must endure two more trials at least.’
Rafaelle will not appeal the council’s decision, his father said, but will instead return to his home town of Giovinazzo, near Bari in southern Italy, immediately.
He will finish his final exams to graduate from the University of Verona by long distance study, he said.

IL GIORNALE

Kercher may have been killed in 'erotic game,' says court
Document explains why Knox, Sollecito acquittal overturned

The 2007 murder of student Meredith Kercher in the city of Perugia could have been the result of an erotic game, Italy's supreme Court of Cassation said on Tuesday in a document explaining the motives for overturning the acquittal of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito for her murder. On March 25, the Cassation scrapped the Perugia appeals court's 2011 decision to quash the 26-year and 25-year sentences Knox and Sollecito were handed respectively at the original trial in 2009.

A new appeals trial has been ordered to take place in Florence.


ANSA

"The [new appeals trial] judge will need to deal with the critical and contradictory aspects of the evidence," the Supreme Court of Cassation said in its written reasoning for its March ruling.

The new trial would "carefully review and unify the various evidence, which was previously analysed separately, place Knox and Sollecito at the crime scene and establish whether pre-meditated murder occurred," the court stated.

Italy’s high court explains Amanda Knox reversal, says victim died in possible ‘erotic game’
By Associated Press

Italy’s high court has explained why it reversed the acquittal of American student Amanda Knox, saying the decision acquitting her of murder was full of contradictions.
In March, the Court of Cassation overturned Knox’s acquittal in the 2007 murder of flatmate Meredith Kercher and ordered a new trial. On Tuesday, the high court issued its written reasoning for doing so. According to excerpts of the 74-page ruling, the high court judges hypothesized that Kercher was killed during a forced “erotic game” that went out of control, LaPresse news agency reported.
The high court faulted the Perugia appeals court for “multiple instances of deficiencies, contradictions and illogical” conclusions, Corriere della Sera reported.


THE WASHINGTON POST

Italy Top Court Faults Amanda Knox Acquittal
By Nicole Winfield

At one point, the high court said the appeals sentence "openly collides with objective facts of the case." Among the undervalued pieces of evidence was Knox's own statement to police, written in English after her police interrogation, in which she wrote that while she couldn't remember clearly, she had an image of herself in her apartment kitchen with her hands covering her ears to drown out Kercher's screams.
...
It said the failure of the appeals court to consider Knox's false accusation together with the murder charge was "manifestly illogical" and must be reconsidered by the new appeals court.
Knox was convicted of slandering Lumumba; she denies the charge and says she was pressured into making the false accusation by overzealous police interrogators.

The high court judges also sharply criticized the appeals court for glossing over what prosecutors say was a robbery staged by the suspects in the apartment to throw police off their trail. The judges noted that the glass from a broken window shattered inside the apartment, not outside, indicating that it was broken from the inside. In addition, there was no evidence that the outside wall had been scaled by the purported robber — again indicating it was an inside, staged job, the court reasoned.

Amanda Knox Court Cites Abandoned Theory of Sex Game Gone Wrong
By Christina Ng, Phoebe Natanson and Nikki Battiste

The judges' document mentioned looking at a "wide range of possible hypothetical options," including "the change in a program which at first only included the involvement of the English young woman in a sex game which she didn't share, to exclusively forcing her into a group kinky erotic game, which exploded, getting out of control."

Knox's lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova said he disagreed with the court's ruling.
"We respect the Supreme Court's decision, but we do not agree with it," Vedova told ABC News. "All the facts the discuss were analyzed already. So now we simply re-start and re-do the case. We are ready to start again in Florence, and we are looking forward to defending Amanda. She is completely innocent."
Vedova said that since the same evidence will be presented as in the appeals court that acquitted Knox, "We expect the same results. We are not worried."
...
The judges also pointed out a number of other issues in the "motivation" that they reportedly believe were not properly dealt with including specific witnesses and timeline issues.

The judges believe that the testimony of a shop owner who allegedly saw Knox buying detergents hours after Kercher's death must be taken into consideration and not dismissed as the appellate court judges did, according to ANSA. The shop keeper did not come forward with his information until weeks after the murder.

They also suggested the Appeals Court was wrong to dismiss the testimony of a key witness as unreliable simply because he was a homeless person who frequented a public square. The man claimed he saw Knox and Sollecito with Guede near the park the night of the murder, which took place the day after Halloween. In the appeals trial, he said he was sure he saw the three of them together because he remembered the presence of the buses which took students to clubs on Halloween.

By Livia Borghese and Jason Hanna

Knox may be ordered to return to Italy for the retrial. If she refuses, the Italian government could appeal to the U.S. government for her extradition. But even if it does, it's not clear whether the United States would extradite her.
When asked Tuesday if Knox would return to Italy to face the new trial, Della Vedova replied: "Would you send your kid back?"

Lawyers react to the Supreme Court motivations report:

Sollecito lawyer says not surprised at acquittal overturn
Appeal trial for Meredith Kercher murder explained by court

The court said it thought that the theory that Kercher was killed during a sex game gone wrong had not been properly studied.
"We do not fear any kind of study because this will only bring out the strangeness of...the allegations," said Bongiorno, in some her client's first comments on the retrial. "It's more or less what we expected," said Bongiorno.


GAZZETTA DEL SUD

Sollecito's lawyer, Giulia Bongiorno, said: "If there was an erotic game then there needs to be a search for the other people involved, who are certainly not Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox," news agency Ansa reported.


GMA NETWORK

After the release of the court's reasoning, his lawyer, Giulia Bongiorno told journalists she did not fear "further in-depth analysis" of the case as it would serve only, she said, to prove Sollecito's innocence.


THE GUARDIAN

"An attorney for Knox said that he respects the ruling but he doesn't agree with it. The high court, he said, was supposed to consider only the legitimacy of the appeal but instead attempted to re-examine the whole case.

"This means that we are going to do again a trial that has already been done, a trial in which there is no clear evidence," attorney Carlo Della Vedova said.


CNN

Knox's attorney, Luciano Ghirga, said the defense would confront the upcoming appeals "serenely ... knowing as always that Amanda and Raffaele weren't in the room of the crime when Meredith was killed," the ANSA news agency reported.


HUFFINGTON POST

In Knox's hometown of Seattle, attorney Anne Bremner, spokeswoman for the group Friends of Amanda, said she was stunned by news that the retrial ruling included reference to a ritualistic sex allegation. "I was really surprised," Bremner said of the ruling. "The prosecutor abandoned (that allegation) back in the trial phase. ... I thought it was the weakest part of the evidence."


GMA NETWORK

Francesco Maresca, the Kercher family lawyer, said he was "very content" with the reasoning. "Particularly important is the supreme court's reference to the declarations of Rudy Guede and to the necessity of taking his sentence into account," he said, also welcoming criticism meted out to certain officials at the Perugia appeals court.

Erin Burnett OutFront:
Italy high court says evidence could support sex game theory in Knox case (video)

Was it a sex game gone horribly wrong? That's what Italy's supreme court wants to figure out.
The court explained its reasoning to retry Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend with the 2007 murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher.
Outfront tonight: CNN legal analyst and criminal defense attorney, Paul Callan.

Italian court: Amanda Knox appeal ruling was full of 'illogical' conclusions (video)
By Scott Stump

Video with Ted Simon at approx. 1:45.

“Since there was no evidence, there is no evidence, and there never will be any evidence, our feeling is that this next review should result in the same verdict — one that demonstrates that Amanda Knox should be exonerated, and found not guilty,” her American attorney Theodore Simon told TODAY Wednesday.

Lawyers.com Editor-in-Chief Larry Bodine discusses Amanda’s memoir with Editorial Director Betsy Kim. Larry has read voluminous material on Amanda’s case, published articles and analyzed the case for several news programs across the country. He explains why he thinks Amanda is not guilty and how she was unfairly convicted. Larry discusses the literary merits of the book — whether Amanda divulges just too much information in her tell-all. He also reviews the process and remote improbability of extraditing Amanda to Italy.

Amanda Knox's days might be numbered

Experts to re-examine DNA clues in fresh Knox appeal
By AFP

"We were very surprised, we took it very badly," Luciano Ghirga said in reference to a damning report released by Italy's highest appeals court explaining why it quashed the acquittal of Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito. "The new court will re-examine all the evidence from the very start, with fresh expert evaluation and possibly fresh testimony from witnesses," he said. "We are ready to fight, to answer every challenge point by point," he added.
...
The report claimed a third trace of blood found on a knife recovered from the house Knox and Kercher lived in should have been examined and was not.

Italian Court Explains Why They Overturned Amanda Knox’s Acquittal
By Barbie Latza Nadeau

Knox and Sollecito won their freedom after an independent review of key pieces of evidence, but, according to Italy’s highest court, those weren’t the only things that linked them to the crime. The high court was particularly hard on the team of independent forensic examiners who they say erred during the appellate process. The high court called into question not only their methods in attempting to prove that evidence was contaminated, but their seeming alliance with the defense teams against the state’s prosecutor and Kercher’s own lawyers. Rumors around Perugia, where the appeal took place, have long suggested that the team was working for the defense, possibly even for monetary gain. Those allegations may soon become part of a separate judicial inquiry to be filed by the family of Meredith Kercher, bolstered by the high court ruling. “The theory ‘anything is possible’ in genetic testing is not valid,” wrote the judges. “Contamination must be proven with certainty not supposition.”

Amanda Knox is secretly reunited with ex-lover Raffaele Sollecito in New York - photos by Jae Donnelly

It would not be against Italian law for Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito to meet unless a specific ruling had been made by the court, which I believe is not the case.
But their meeting may provide ammunition for the prosecution over the credibility of both suspects if either changes the lines of defence that they have maintained so far.
The questions are: what was the reason for the pair getting together again after so long? And have they done so before?
Italian prosecution lawyers may want to know if the case was discussed.
But it would be very difficult for the two to change their versions of events having given such detailed accounts of what they did on the night of the murder.

Amanda Knox Co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito in Cash Appeal to Pay Lawyers
By Umberto Bacchi

The former boyfriend of Amanda Knox has appealed online for cash to pay his legal bills in the forthcoming retrial for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.
Sollecito, 29, launched a crowd-funding campaign to collect $500,000 (£323,000) he said would fund his defence.
In 24 hours Sollecito received donations from more than 50 people, ranging from $5 to $1,000 and totalling more than $4,200.
A number of sympathetic comments were posted by donors on the campaign page though some others criticised the initiative.
...
He has pledged to certify all expenditure and to donate leftover cash to an unnamed research foundation.

Amanda Knox co-accused Raffaele Sollecito appeals for $500,000 to help cover legal fees for murder retrial

Shameless Sollecito's appeal comes just months after it is understood he was paid a six-figure sum for his book

Shameless Raffaele Sollecito, the man accused of Meredith Kercher’s murder, has sparked fury after asking the public for a staggering $500,000 despite already cashing in on the British student’s death.

Just hours after the Mirror pictured the Italian student back in the arms of his former lover Amanda Knox, the 29-year-old set up an appeal to help cover his legal fees for the pair’s retrial.

Under the heading “Raffaele Sollecito ReTrial in Florence” he listed his page under the topic of “accidents & emergencies”.

His appeal comes just months after Sollecito is understood to have been paid a six-figure sum for his book “Honor Bound: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox” about Meredith’s murder.

Amanda Knox's Ex Sollecito Appeals For Cash
By Nick Pisa

On Thursday, his urologist father Francesco said: "This is an initiative of Raffaele's but it has my full support. I'm no longer in a position to fund a trial which could last another two years.
"Witnesses will have to be reheard and there is a good chance that new forensic tests will have to be carried out and as such experts and consultants will have to be paid.
"We are both very grateful for the high attention that has been paid to this case by his lawyers Giulia Buongiorno and Luca Maori."

Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito together in New York — on the DAY Italy’s highest court explains why they should be retried

Raffaele Sollecito: 'It's like Kafka, they play with my life,' says Italian facing retrial for killing of Meredith Kercher
By Tom Kington

After years of being depicted as a softly spoken figure in the courtrooms of Perugia, Raffaele Sollecito is getting angry. "It's outrageous," said the 29-year old former boyfriend of Amanda Knox who now faces a retrial, alongside the American student, for the murder of Meredith Kercher almost six years ago.

"This is not living. I am in limbo, repeating the same thing over and over again. No one should be put through this," he told the Observer, days after Italy's supreme court explained in detail its rejection of an appeal court's decision to free the pair in 2011 – meaning that they face a retrial in Florence, possibly starting in October.
