Meredith – Shocking interview with Prosecutor Mignini. Amanda Knox exonerated?
PERUGIA = The sound recording of an interview granted to a British reporter by the Substitute Prosecutor of Perugia, Giuliano Mignini, was delivered yesterday by Luca Maori, one of the defense attorneys of Raffaele Sollecito. This sound recording was delivered to the General Prosecutor Giancarlo Costagliola, who together with Manuela Comodi represent the prosecution in the appeal process of the young man from Puglia, and Amanda Knox, for the murder of Meredith Kercher.
This information appears in the weekly publication “OGGI,” in an article available on the stands tomorrow. A preview of the article has been made available.
“I delivered the disc without making any comments,” defense attorney Maori explained to OGGI. OGGI reports in a note that the disc contains statements made by Mignini during a long conversation with Bob Graham, a British reporter who collaborates with the tabloid The Sun.
According to OGGI, Mignini admitted that in the room where the crime occurred no biological proof was found connected to the presumed assassin Amanda Knox. Mignini stated that “theoretically, Amanda could have instigated the crime even from another room.”
“A crucial quote,” stated OGGI, which is in contrast with Mignini’s theory which maintained that Amanda had assumed a double active role: that of being the mastermind of the orgy, and an active element in the crime, holding Meredith still while Rudy Guede and Raffaele cut her throat.
Furthermore, the note continues, during the interview Mignini admitted with all tranquility that the scientific police failed to find biological traces because they did not examine everything due to “not having enough time to conduct a complete scientific investigation.
The appeal process for Sollecito and Knox, condemned to twenty-five and sixteen years in prison, although they both protest their innocence, will resume on June 18, with the deposition of Mario Alessi.
