Running On A Mudslide, The Seemingly Freaked Sollecito Team Tries Again Not To Be Overwhelmed
Posted by Peter Quennell
This request, rare from the open Italian system, has been made a few times before in this case, to try to block corruption and dishonest PR before they can get up to speed.
Meanwhile, it is safe to assume that a great unraveling of the huge body of lies must be freaking the Sollecito and Knox team’s minds. A new development that the Italian media IS reporting suggests this is so.
By way of context, Guede is now out on parole but has some time still to serve, including three years awarded by the Florence court for possession of stolen property, a notebook computer taken by two persons still unknown from a law-firm in Perugia, late in 2007.
(There is zero hard evidence that Guede ever did any break-and-entering, ever, and he has never been charged or convicted of that.)
His Rome team has filed a Supreme Court appeal against the Florence court’s decision not to grant him a retrial for grounds based on the 2015 Supreme Court outcome of the Sollecito and Knox appeal which said in part (1) Guede did not act alone and (2) Knox and Sollecito were both there.
And his interview broadcast nationally by RAI could be followed up by a book damning to RS and AK.
Okay. Now the Italian news service ANSA reports this.
“Once he has finished his full term in prison, Rudy Guede must be expelled from Italy” the lawyer Luca Maori, one of the defenders of Raffaele Sollecito, has asked.
The Ivorian these days is in Perugia, at the home of his former elementary school teacher where he is taking advantage of a possible reversal of the condemned’s sentenced to 16 years’ imprisonment, which he is serving for the murder of Meredith Kercher.
Sollecito was finally acquitted for the same crime. “I will ask the police headquarters in Perugia - said Maori - to take steps to undertake the removal procedures of Guede, who is not an Italian citizen, who is now finishing serving his sentence (in prison in Viterbo - Ed.)
Many foreigners are expelled from our country for far less serious offenses to murder for which the Ivorian was sentenced” he said.
Any such expulsion order, considered unlikely, would be put on hold while Guede appeals - and presumably does maximum harm.
