English translation of the Florence Appeal Court’s refusal of compensation to Amanda Knox ex Raffaele Sollecito
The English translation of the Florence Appeal Court’s refusal of compensation to Raffaele Sollecito is out! Raffaele Sollecito had been seeking the full amount possible for what he considered to be his wrongful imprisonment. Raffaele even appeared on BBC where he attempted to explain why he deserved half a million euros on top of the million+ euros he received from two books he wrote and grant he received from the Italian government to start his online business for grave sites. The former murder convict went so far as to criticize the victim’s family for believing the prosecution.
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 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.
