Knox lawyers caution against Perugia murder film


Perugia, November 30 - Lawyers acting on behalf of
Amanda Knox, the young American acquitted for the murder of
British Erasmus student Meredith Kercher in Perugia in 2007,
cautioned private broadcaster Mediaset not to screen a televison
film based on the story on Monday as planned.
'Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy' was first screened
in the US in 2011 amid strong opposition from the protagonists'
families and lawyers.
"There is a trial underway and so we consider the broadcast
to be untimely," lawyer Luciano Ghirga told ANSA.
Knox said she did not like the film and "has asked us what
we can do to prevent it being shown in Italy," he added.
The young woman was convicted of murdering Kercher, 21,
together with her then boyfriend, the Italian Raffaele
Sollecito, by a court of first instance in December 2009 and the
pair were respectively sentenced to 26 and 25 years in prison.
Their guilty verdict was subsequently overturned two years
later by a court of appeal.
The Perugia prosecutor's office and Kercher family
contested the decision and their case is set to be heard by the
supreme Court of Cassation, Italy's highest court, next March.
