Rudy Guede Now Counter-Claims From Prison That Knox And Sollecito Were Real Instigators

Posted by Tiziano

Please click here to read Rudy Guede’s hand-written letter from Viterbo Prison (above)  in Italian.

Below is our translation of the letter as posted by TGCom.

Rudy Guede was obviously provoked into putting his version of events out by the claim of Alessi (see video at bottom of this post) that he had a colleague with him on the night, and also by the finding of the judges in the Dispositivo that he was the prime instigator.

The complete text of the letter written by the Ivory Coast man.

Guede’s letter to News Mediaset.

Viterbo 07/03/2010

As usual in this beloved beautiful country of ours, there are many dishonest people given over to lying.  And there are likewise those who give these people a voice without the slightest questioning of their consciences, whether it’s worth the trouble of giving space to certain conjectures.

In recent days the only things I have heard have been blasphemous insinuations about me; baseless gossip which has done nothing other than harrying, hither and thither, TV news channels, even though for reasonable people it is the pure invention of a wicked mind.

It must be said that all I have heard in recent days in the media, about what has been falsely stated by this foul being by the name of Mario Alessi, whose conscience is nothing but stinking garbage, are purely and simply the ravings of a sick and twisted mind, his ravings are the dreamed-up, untrue declarations of a monster who sullied himself with a frightful murder in which he took the life of an angelic little human being, as is known throughout Italy. This fellow, now, is telling lies about things that I never said to him and (other things) that I never said, things that don’t exist either in this world or the next.

To his ““ or rather their- rotten declarations, it’s my intention to put in black and white that I never confided in this disgusting creature, since moreover that I’ve got nothing to confess or anything else (to say), and everything that I had to say I have already said to the judges and I will go on shouting and fighting while I am still alive, until the truth itself and justice itself prevail over such lies, and even less did I speak one to one or together with other people or with other inmates about my trial affairs, and if I had ever had something to say, don’t you believe that I would have talked about it with my lawyers?  Giving rise to and giving credit to what is a blasphemous statement made by a sick mind, to a monster who had no pity for a child.

With this latest scenario, which my lawyers, my family and I are now used to, from this latest person, the monster Alessi, I hope that Italians and the rest of the world realise that they are dealing with pigs, pigs which stink of the slime of falsehood, but which, not withstanding everything, go around showing their faces and suffocating people with their fetid lying.

Like their umpteenth scenario which does nothing more than give me the strength and the awareness to struggle more than ever, so that the truth that they want to hide is revealed for everyone to see.

As far as I’m concerned, (I have) the serenity and the calm of complete peace of mind, as a person who does not parade this unfair suffering, but who trusts in justice and in the good sense of Italians. 

And finally I wish that sooner or later the judges will recognise my complete non-involvement in what was the horrible murder of the splendid, magnificent girl who was Meredith Kercher, by Raffaelle Sollecito and Amanda Knox.

Guede Rudy

Below: Alessi’s statement at Viterbo Prison to Raffaele Sollecito’s defense team. Warning: this very self-serving statement by Alessi is graphic and offensive, as well as, in our view, almost certainly untrue. 

Rudy Guede will be interrogated on the claims in this statement today Friday by Mr Mignini and Ms Comodi at Viterbo Prison. There could be news coming out of this interrogation later today.


Neither Alessi nor Rudy Guede are believable.  The reason Rudy Guede didn’t spill the beans during his trial and appeal is because he still hoped to convince everybody of his “non-involvement” which is quite difficult to believe considering the evidence against him.

Now he writes a long letter without saying much ... a tactic that is not really new. All three defendants made statements that they later withdrew and/or contradicted. Nobody should even bother to listen to them anymore.

Why does Alessi makes these declarations? Maybe he wants attention, or it is just papa Sollecito who is still trying to make the water flow uphill, who knows? If the latter, he should have spent a bit more money for a more credible “witness”, just my 2 cents.

I would give Guede more credibility than Alessi, Knox or Sollecito.  At least Guede admits to being at the house that night and it is believed that he did try to help Meredith to some degree, by trying to staunch the blood with towels.  All of them are equally guilty for taking part, but only one of them has told any truth at all since the beginning and that is Guede. 

I think that time in prison, and maybe even his conscience, has made him realize that the truth needs to be told.  I think that his fear of Sollecito’s family’s influence kept him silent until now, but perhaps he has decided to take his chances.

Guede can hardly not admit being in the house that night; his DNA puts him there and squarely where he was. Why he didn’t come out with all this earlier is something I don’t quite get. He needs to come out with the truth and the whole truth….all of it.

Whether he can further mitigate his own sentence, I don’t know, and frankly, if he can’t, his truth would be all the more believable—just tell your story that night, Rudy. How you came to be there and what happened….....ALL OF IT.

Guede apparently asked Mignini for a deal prior to the AK-RS trial but came up far short in the story department so Mignini offered him nothing and at the trial he of course offered nothing back.

Knowing what actually happened on the night would make a huge difference. Closure of sorts really might happen for Meredith’s family and her many, many friends also affected - some were very viciously attacked for daring to take the line that we take for them here.

Curt Knox and Edda Mellas and Marriott really should move to reign in the viciousness once and for all. It has always been in their power to do something and it’s time that they did. They have a journey to make too.

I totally agree what you said about Guede.

To be fair to him he has been fairly somewhat consistent regarding his statements relating to Knox and Sollecito’s involvement in Meredith’s murder. Now Guede has unwillingly had to endure this Alessi bloke and his misinformation.

The families of AK and RS are so desperate to get their so called “good kids” off the hook that they are prepared to do anything. It’s interesting to watch them clutch at straws and Alessi, given that the sentencing report has just been published.

The FOA and Company are drowning and will clutch at a straw, meaning a piece of straw would not help them keep afloat, but - if you are drowning - you would grab at anything, however hopeless, in your efforts to stay alive.

When in trouble, people will take any chances available to get out of trouble - even ‘chances’ with no hope of success.

The problem with clutching at more and more straws is that they do risk looking increasingly peculiar.  Now it appears we have a nun and a priest in the loop.

The only comment so far under Linda Byron’s “report” is this:

“What a waste of everyones time. Just get to the appeal and let the real facts talk. This spin from her family is beginning to get really weird and not look very good. They should keep their mouths shut and let the system do its job.”

Reuters Italy has just reported that both Alessi and Guede have now been interrogated by Mignini and Comodi. We are waiting for a long-version report.

Guede’s lawyers Biscotti and Gentile have firmly confirmed that Guede took the position explained in his letter.

Alessi could be facing serious charges if his claims all look to have been made up. Perhaps he can rustle up that nun and priest in his support.

“The problem with clutching at more and more straws is that they do risk looking increasingly peculiar.  Now it appears we have a nun and a priest in the loop.”


Flippin heck, a nun and a priest?? Good lord (sorry, no pun intended). Whatever next? The Pope?

Have they got the Actress and the Bishop on standby too?

This could very well be a comedy sketch from one of FOA’s fund-raisers. Also starring Senator Cantwell and Hilary Clinton…

Seriously tho, peculiar is not the word.. this would be too funny if we were not dealing with something so serious such as murder.

So Mignini and Comodi made no statements after the two interrogations at Viterbo. We do not yet know what Alessi claimed, or if it was anything knew.

Guede’s lawyers confirmed that Guede in his own 20-minute interrogation was calm, did not refer to AK or RS, and confirmed that he had never discussed his case with any other inmates.

The wheels seem to have come off the CBS 48 Hours claim yesterday that Alessi’s confession “had cleared” Amanda Knox. No other news organization made that absurd claim.

Posted by Peter Quennell on 03/13/10 at 12:05 AM | #

It would appear that CBS News has joined the ranks of Fox News, the Enquirer, and that ilk of tabloid journalism.  I would not believe a word from any of these sources.

Is it not truly expecting honour among thieves to believe that anyone these three have rubbed shoulders with behind prison walls would not be willing to step on the bodies around them to get higher up to the daylight?  Why should someone as low as alessi be helpful to anyone else? Why was Kokomani (the dopehead girlfriendbeater) willing to come forward as a witness against Guede? Was there an old debt to settle? Were they competing dealers? I had hoped that Knox would confess in her sleep, but even if she did, would we believe her cellmates?

Murder , whether of helpless infants ambushed young women or gangland rivals is nothing other than ugly. It is, to my mind the most unforgivable act. Beautiful, successful, gentle people die every day, before their time, of incurable diseases, in accidents, natural disasters, certainly not by their own choosing. But a murderer, or the selfish bystander who does nothing to help, they will have to commit a hundred acts of selflessness to make up for what they took away.

I am waiting for Mr Guede to get over his personal insult…and tell the Kerchers what they need to hear. That is his fast track to redemption in my opinion.
After that, he can tell the rest of us what happened that cruel night.
Other than that, I don’t care to hear him whine about his bad press.
