In Italy, the breaking news: convicted Killer Amanda Knox being sued for slander. Amanda, who tossed slanderous remarks out left and right prior to her conviction and sentencing in Italy for murdering Meredith Kercher, her roommate, will be charged for slandering the police. It was a “false claim, Amanda not beaten by police,” as she had alluded publicly and in court. Amanda also slandered her boss during the investigation, resulting in his wrongful arrest. He was eventually released when it was realized Amanda had lied.
Slander Accusation Investigation Over for Amanda Knox
According to Italian prosecutor Giuliano Mignini, acknowledged that Amanda Knox had been notified, through her lawyers at the jail, that the slander investigation had ended and she was going to be officially charged for her slanderous remarks.
The Italian legal system demands the individual be made aware of such pending charges prior to them being formalized in order to provide time for them to consult with their attorney and prepare a defense, according to the Daily Mail.
Amanda claimed officers beat her during questioning, a claim she reiterated during the trial, but could offer no evidence. Officers denied the charges and Amanda could not back up her claim during court. An investigation proceeded to set the record straight and to prosecute her for false accusations like she had also leveled at her boss right after the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher.
Amanda had a habit of changing her alibi story too during the investigation. You can read the Foxy Knoxy Alibi of Amanda Knox yourself.
The Fine in Italy for Slander is Stiff
Amanda will face a potential fine and could also get a stiff two to six year sentence for slandering the Italian police. Italians take slanderous accusations seriously, especially when it involves the police.
Amanda’s slander against her employer at the time she committed her murder of Meredith Kercher resulted in a financial fine of $60,000 to him.
But Amanda isn’t the only one in her family who was under investigation for defamation, according to the Daily Mail; her divorced parents Edda Mellas and Curt Knox have also been under investigation since November. They are being investigated for comments made to a Sunday newspaper in Britian that their daughter had been beaten by police.
The apple doesn’t fall from the tree, eh?
If you want to read what Amanda has been thinking and writing about while in prison you might take a look at Amanda Knox’s Prison Diary for a “clue.” But don’t look for any sad, sorrowful prose about her poor murdered roommate Meredith Kercher: Amanda Knox only has time to think about herself.
“Convicted killer Amanda Knox being sued for slander” is probably one headline the Knox family didn’t expect as they attempted to prepare for Amanda’s murder conviction appeal this year. And the “False claim, Amanda not beaten by police” headline can’t be much help either in making anyone believe her during the appeal process. But you can bet that “This just in from Italy: convicted killer Amanda Knox faces slander suit” isn’t a surprise headline to her previous boss who suffered jail time due to her fibbing tongue. But, of course, that is nothing to what poor Meredith Kercher suffered at the hands Amanda Knox. Is it?
