Book review: Extradition by Nick van der Leek
If you are interested in the Meredith Kercher case and want to know why Amanda Knox murdered her and how her public relations firm assisted in perverting the course of justice, then you must read Extradition by Nick van der Leek. This book covers the events surrounding the time after Amanda Knox returned to the U.S. through the Nencini trial where she and Raffaele Sollecito were found guilty.
Amanda Knox’s documentary was released in September 2016. The film was created by ardent long-time supporters of Knox. The film centered around Amanda’s experience of the tragic death of a 21-year-old British exchange student Meredith Kercher. The documentary flashed many crime scene photographs, including some showing Meredith’s lifeless body. These photos were included ostensibly without permission from the victim’s family. After the movie aired, many incomprehensibly turned to social media to attack a journalist name Nick Pisa.
It is being reported on March 24, 2016 that Italian foundation called ‘Sergioperlamusica’ is proposing a concert for the late Meredith Kercher. Meredith Kercher was a British exchange student who was murdered in Perugia, Italy in 2007. The concert is part of an event scheduled for June 20, 2016 which will highlight significant moments in Perugia, Italy’s history.
It is being reported on January 14, 2016 that the Italian courts in Florence have acquitted Amanda Knox of slandering the police. Knox was facing an additional two years and eight months in prison for accusing the police of “pressures and mistreatment.” Knox claimed that the police abuse caused her to falsely accuse her former Congolese boss, Patrick Lumumba of murdering Meredith Kercher.
The trial began on June 9th and during the last hearing held in early September, was audited by Judge Giuliano Mignini (above picture). The magistrate confirmed the charges of Knox stating that the interrogation was totally free from any psychological pressure.
It is being reported in Italian news on September 21, 2015 that Amanda Knox now faces more prison time for slandering the Italian police. Amanda Knox was acquitted of murdering Merdith Kercher earlier this year, under what the Italian Supreme court described as a “strong suspicion” of culpability in their recently released reasoning report. Knox’s criminal conviction for slandering her former boss was confirmed by the ISC leaving Knox a convicted felon. Now Knox stands to be convicted of more calumny charges resulting from her statements against police detectives in court.
Amanda Knox was acquitted of murder back in March due to insufficient evidence but her conviction of calunnia or criminal slander was upheld. Knox falsely accused her former boss Patrick Lumumba for the murder of Meredith Kercher and as a result she was sentenced to four years which was time served in Capanne Prison.
