Amanda Knox return to the court

Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito of Italy will have to return to face the court for the murder of British girl Meredith Kercher, after the Court of Cassation has accepted the appeal by the prosecution, reversing the judgment for which they were acquitted. Thus, the trial against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito will be repeated, reported on its website the newspaper 'La Repubblica'.

The judges of the Court of Cassation decided that the trial should be re-done by accepting the appeal filed by the attorney general, and have decided to cancel the acquittal of Amanda Knox and Sollecito arguing that "the facts do not support". The new trial will be held in Florence.

The Court of Appeal also rejected the appeal of Amanda Knox against her sentence to three years in prison for libel to Patrick Lumumba, whom she accused of murdering Meredith Kercher. Thus, the sentence is confirmed, but Amanda Knox has already served his sentence because he spent four years in jail before being acquitted.

"They still do not believe me", said Amanda Knox's own, in a telephone conversation from Seattle with one of his two lawyers, Luciano Ghirga, as has told the lawyer. "I was nervous and then calmed down," he stated. "He says he still not believe him," she added.
