Perugia, June 28 - Raffaele Sollecito's father
said recent comments made by prosecutors in Perugia on the
supreme Court of Cassation's decision to order a retrial trial
over the 2007 murder of student Meredith Kercher were ''unusual
and improper''.
In March this year, Italy's highest appeals court scrapped
the acquittal Sollecito of his ex-girlfriend Amanda Knox in the
case of Kercher's murder in Perugia and ordered a new appeals
trial which will be held in Florence as soon as this fall.
Knox, now 25, and Sollecito, now 29, both students along
with Kercher, were convicted of her murder in 2009 and served
almost four years in prison before their convictions were
overturned in 2011.
Perugia Prosecutor Giovanni Galati earlier this month had
said ''the Supreme Court of cassation sentence substantially
demolishes the appeals court sentence of Perugia... underlining
the incomplete explanations and the constant violations of the
law''.
Another Perugia prosecutor, Giancarlo Costagliola, said
the decision of Italy's supreme Court of Cassation to order a
new appeals trial has raised Kercher's parents' hope of finally
discovering who killed her.
Francesco Sollecito said the Perugia prosecutors should
have remained silent as the ''trial is still outstanding'' and
the case was no longer theirs.
