Sollecito accuses prosecutors of gruesome film fantasies


Bari, July 1 - Raffaele Sollecito, Amanda Knox's
ex-boyfriend and co-defendant in the murder case of fellow
student Meredith Kercher, on Monday posted on Facebook an
account of his relation with Knox that accuses prosecutors of
twisting the truth into a bad horror movie plot.
''Meredith Kercher's murder, the horror film'' was the
title Sollecito gave his post on the social network.
Sollecito described his affair with the American student
and called it ''too boring'' for criminal prosecutors, who he
said made a ''horror film'' reconstruction of events.
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.
''It isn't known why Amanda and Raffaele chose to kill
Meredith, but we must take note of their choice, the choice of
evil,'' Sollecito sarcastically wrote on Facebook.
''Probably under the influence of drugs, which they don't
scorn seeing as they said they had smoked a joint...Too bad no
one did the tests to see if, effectively, Amanda and Raffaele
had used heavy drugs and were accustomed to drinking heavily.
Damn!'' Sollecito's post went on.
'''Cool! You made a fusion between 'The Exorcist' and
'Lethal Weapon 4!!!'...You're awesome,'' wrote Sollecito,
parodying the judgement of Giancarlo Massei, the Perugia judge
who convicted the two students in lower court.
Sollecito concluded, ''As Terminator said, 'I'll be
back'...and in fact, they later made 'Terminator 2'''.
Perugia Prosecutor Giovanni Galati last month 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
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.
Raffaele Sollecito's father, Francesco, called the Perugia
prosecutors' comments ''unusual, improper'', maintaining that
the Perugia prosecutors should have remained silent as the
''trial is still outstanding'' and the case was no longer
