Naseer Ahmad (Ergon) an editor of The Murder of Meredith Kercher Wiki and Perugia Murder File, discusses the activities of a group called the Friends Of Amanda Knox who were behind her PR campaign.
Q: Ergon, when did you first become aware of the Friends of Amanda Knox or FOA?
Ergon: I wasn’t the first of course, but I investigated them at length after I became aware of them in 2010. There’s a lot of dirt on all of them.
Cover ups, intimidation of people in Seattle, threats of legal action, stalking, harassment.
Q: Who are the FOA and why should people care?
Ergon: Some are wealthy people who got behind the campaign, helped with Gogerty Marriott. Some have capitalized on the publicity surrounding this case in order to raise funds for personal gain. There are also some scientists whose false reports got them publicity, and reinforce their side careers as defense consultants. And more. . . .
Q: Have these people affected the legal case of the murder of Meredith Kercher? If so how?
Ergon: Yes they have. By manipulation of the media, causing political interference. I will go in detail how they affected the murder trial and also how the tide turned. I spoke to CNN reporters, producers. Faxed information to Katie Couric’s producer so in her closing she made it clear she didn’t believe Raffaele Sollecito. Knox wasn’t happy with Chris Cuomo’s questions either.
Q: Who are the FOA? Young or old? All Americans?
Ergon: Young, old, some professional PR people using sock puppets. Not all American. Quite a few British and other countries, Russia, Poland.
