Innocent Amanda Knox’s Statement In Full: The Second Verdict On Meredith Kercher’s Murder (Photos)

DID Amanda Knox kill Merdith Kercher? Yes? No! Her 11-month appeal against her 26-year-sentenced for murder is at its end. She is innocent. She has been found not guilty. Forget the DNA. The ruling is that she and her lover did not kill Meredith Kercher. She’s been cleared. America wins! Italy loses then wins! Now…. show her the money! She’s served four years in jail.

Amanda Knox’s makes a statement to the court in Perugia. She speaks to the six jurors in Italian.

“Members of the court. Many times people have said I am the person (who killed) but people don’t understand whom I am. The accusation are completely unjust.I am the same person I was four years ago. The only thing different is what I have suffered. I lost a friend, a girlfriend, in the most brutal way in the most unexplained manner possible. My trust in the police authorities was betrayed, I have had to dealt with unfair and unfounded charges. I have paid with my life for things that I did not commit. Four years ago I did not know what tragedy was. I have never faced so much anger before.How did we react when we found out Meredith had been killed? I did not believe it. How was it possible? Her bedroom was next to mine. She was killed in our home. If I had been there that night I would have died. The only difference is, I was not there…”

………

“I trusted the police’s sense of duty and trust. I trusted them completely. I was betrayed on the night of November 5. I was manipulated. I am not who I say I am. I did not do the things attributed to me. I am not violent. I don’t have a lack of respect for life. And I did not kill. I did not rape. I did not steal. I wasn’t there at the crime scene at the time…”

………

“I am not who they say I am – the perversion, the violence, the lack of respect for life. I did not do the things they said I did. I did not kill, I did not sexually assault, I did not steal…

………

Meredith was killed and I have always wanted justice for her…. I insist on the truth. I insist after four desperate years on our innocence … I want to go back home. I want to go back to my life. I don’t want to be punished. I don’t want my life and my future taken away for something I didn’t do, because I am innocent and Raffaele is innocent, too…”

………

“I had good relationships with everyone who lived in my flat. We all had good relationships. We helped each other. I shared my life, particularly with Meredith. We were friends. She was worried about me. She was very kind to me. I have never run away from the truth. I insist after four desperate years, that our innocence is true and needs to be recognised. I want to go back home. I want to go back to my life. I do not want to be punished. I don’t want my life and my future taken away from me for something that I didn’t do. I am innocent. We do not deserve this. We never did anything to deserve this. I have the upmost respect to this court and the care that it has shown. Thank you.”
