ECHR: Evidence that the police did NOT cause Amanda Knox to falsely accuse Patrick Lumumba of murder
It is well-known that Amanda Knox accused Patrick Lumumba of murder on November 5, 2007. This led her to be convicted of calunnia or criminal slander. A conviction upheld by the Italian Supreme Court in 2015. Now Amanda Knox is trying to appeal this conviction through the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). She claims the police coerced her to name Patrick. However, there is evidence that Amanda Knox conspired with Raffaele Sollecito to blame Patrick Lumumba the day before Amanda accused Patrick.
It is being reported on August 2, 2016 that Rudy Guede, Amanda Knox’s co-accused in the murder of Meredith Kercher, has filed a petition for a retrial. Guede’s defense team argues that his sentence is incompatible with the acquittals that Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito received for the same crime. They want to overturn his conviction.
