Kercher family lawyer hails reopening of murder case


(see related story)
Rome, March 26 - The Italian lawyer representing
the family of murdered British student Meredith Kercher said
Tuesday's ruling that scraps the acquittals of Amanda Knox and
Raffaele Sollecito will help to get to the "final, definitive
truth" about the case.
The supreme Court of Cassation overturned the 2011 decision
of Perugia's appeals court, which had squashed the 26-year and
25-year sentences Knox and Sollecito were handed respectively at
the original trial in 2009.
Rudy Guede, now 26, a native of the African nation of Ivory
Coast, is in prison after being convicted separately and
sentenced to 16 years in jail for killing Kercher, who was 21.
"This decision will help to get to the final, definitive
truth about Meredith's murder," said Francesco Maresca, the
Kerchers' lawyer.
"There were other people with Guede. The judges will say
who they are.
"I was confident. The Cassation is well known for its
preparation on points of law.
"I was confident because there were many faults in the
appeals ruling. This is a trial victory and a moral victory".
