The retrial of Amanda Knox and her Italian boyfriend has generated a fair amount of news here in the UK and in Italy (the murder of Meredith Kercher
in Perugia in 2007) and I wondered whether it was the same in America or if it has generated less column inches over there.
The case is intriguing, not only because of the apparent incompetence by the Italian investigative authorities, but the actions of Knox and her
boyfriend immediately after the event and since. There are many changes of testimony, mostly by Knox, and lots of unanswered questions – hence the
retrial. Many in Italy think her and her boyfriend complicit in the crime.
They and Guede, a friend of theirs, were all found guilty in the original trial but Knox and her boyfriend won their subsequent appeal and were later
released. Guede is still serving a 16-year sentence.
A new trial, ordered by Italy's highest court, is about to get under way at the end of this month with requests for Knox and her then boyfriend to
attend. Both have not guaranteed that they will.
I wondered what your thoughts are of the case against them, if they will attend and if they will get convicted?
