Book review: Despicable

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.
Meredith Kercher was a beautiful, happy, young woman who was thrust into the world news (and tabloids) due to her death and the depravity of the monsters who attacked her. It is no exaggeration to describe her as a rising star. She was mature, ambitious, loved and admired by the many people whose lives she touched. Even now Meredith’s inner light radiates so brightly that those held responsible for her demise still bask in the outer fringes of her glow, in the dim fumes of infamy.
While Amanda Knox relives her lesbian experiences in prison (ten years ago) in the mainstream media, her ex-flame Raffaele Sollecito boils over on Italian television. Too humiliated to face the public, Raffaele fired away from the telephone about the Florence courts recent verdict. On February 11, 2017 the Italian court rejected his request for half a million euros compensation for ‘wrongful imprisonment.’ The judges stated that because Raffaele lied to the police, causing his arrest, he cannot receive compensation.
It is being reported on February 12, 2017 that the lawyer for murder victim, Meredith Kercher, has announced that the Italian courts decision to deny compensation to Amanda Knox’s ex-lover Raffaele Sollecito, raises doubts over their acquittals. Francesco Maresca, who represents the family of Meredith Kercher said, “The Court of appeal of Florence confirms the uncertainty related to the acquittal of Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox. . ” Maresca’s comments follow the Florence courts verdict to deny Sollecito half a million euros that Raffaele sought in his lawsuit against Italy for ‘wrongful imprisonment.’
It is being reported on February 11, 2017 that Amanda Knox’s ex-lover, Raffaele Sollecito has been denied compensation by Italian courts. The judges slammed down Raffaele’s request for 500,000 Euros for alleged ‘wrongful imprisonment.” Last month Sollecito appeared on British television, the home country of the victim Meredith Kercher’s family, claiming that he felt he deserved half a million euros from the Italian authorities. But Italian judges pointed out that Sollecito admittedly lied to police officers which was what caused his arrest. Therefore, Sollecito bears responsibility for being taken into custody and subsequent incarceration.
