It is being reported on June 28, 2017 that Amanda Knox’s ex- partner-in-crime, Raffaele Sollecito has been denied compensation for wrongful imprisonment – again. This was Sollecito’s second trip to the courthouse after an initial trial on the same claim was rejected last February. The Italian judges in the first court stated that the reason for the denial being the fact that Raffaele lied to the police.
The infamous knife collector was hoping to whittle down the current tribunal with his tales of financial hardship. Apparently, this did not work out any better the second time around. Amanda Knox is prohibited from attempting to sue for wrongful imprisonment since the Italian supreme court upheld her conviction for criminal slander (calunnia) in 2015. Amanda Knox falsely accused her employer of murder.
The Italian Supreme court also concluded that Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox were both present in the cottage when Meredith Kercher was murdered. They found ample evidence of Amanda Knox washing the victim’s blood from her hands. However, in the end they decided the evidence wasn’t sufficient enough to prove without a doubt that they were actively involved in stabbing Meredith Kercher to death.
