Amanda Knox trial is getting live coverage across the world. But to her horror, her acquittal has been overturned by the Italian court

Amanda Knox acquittal has been overturned by an Italian court and the case of the murder of a 21 year old British student in Italy is set to begin again in the next few days. But the good news for the time being for Miss Amanda Knox is the fact that the court in Rome hasn’t asked her to surrender or ask law enforcement agencies to arrest her. This has been one of the very high profile cases that involves citizens of at least three nations and involved students whose academic career has been badly affected by the case.

Amanda Knox and her boyfriend at that time Raffaele Sollecito were arrested a few days following the gruesome murder of 21 year old British student Meredith Kercher in the year 2007. But there were not clear evidence either against Amanda Knox or Raffaele Sollecito and so after being imprisoned for years they were acquitted in the case by a local court in 20111 and both were set free with Amanda Knox flying back to America where she lives now with her family.

But the case was opened when in the year 2012 Meredith Kercher family went to the court against the acquittal of the duo. Reports suggest that Amanda Knox’s lawyers appealed against the accusation of calumny, but the ruling on Tuesday upheld the charge. In a statement released to the media Knox criticized prosecutors and the decision. “It was painful to receive the news that the Italian Supreme Court decided to send my case back for revision when the prosecution’s theory of my involvement in Meredith’s murder has been repeatedly revealed to be completely unfounded and unfair…I believe that any questions as to my innocence must be examined by an objective investigation and a capable prosecution…The prosecution responsible for the many discrepancies in their work must be made to answer for them, for Raffaele’s sake, my sake, and most especially for the sake of Meredith’s family. Our hearts go out to them” the statement said.

The girl who is now 26 year old said that she was confident that the final ruling will go in her favor as she was innocent. “face this continuing legal battle as we always have, confident in the truth and with our heads held high in the face of wrongful accusations and unreasonable adversity”, her statement said. What is certain is that this torturous legal process is dragging for too long.
