Amanda Knox, convicted er or railroaded by Italy.Page 6 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Lol aye its hands up time. I did dive in there and act like the dafties i cannae stand. As a punishment i will get some bran flakes from the shops and have
them for brekkie and spend the rest of the day sitting miserably on the bog. But i was reading a few other articles yesterday about this case and it does seem we are getting entrenched. The italians are getting hissy with yous shermans because its SEEMS like you shermans are saying their courts are pony.
In the uk we are wondering how knox who has now been found guilty twice and who has made a bucker load of money has changed her story
so often and just made herself very dislikeable is still free. And the quote from the poor victims brother about extradition and how a nation like
america who demand extradition of folk* deemed guilty in their eyes are now reluctant to comply with the italians.
Then reading some of the sherman press yesterday it appears that knox is being portrayed as the victim and is being hounded unfairly. Now the judge says they
have a motive which they will release. But why is knox not serving a sentence for implicating her former boss as the murderer? She has ruined that geezers
life. She treated the court with contempt. I still think she has evidence hidden away. Could be a big decision for john kerry and the obama administration
though. Do they acknowledge the laws and treatys that are signed or do they tell the world to piss off?
I have included a wee bit about the gary mckinnon case when america demanded with threats the extradition of mckinnon because he hacked sensitive computers.
Perhaps the shermans should have been asking him how he managed to get into said sensitive computers. Because if he did then who else has? And if americas
treaty with italy is the same as it was with us its a bit one way. And here is how it was with the uk. More in the link at the end.
How the extradition treaty worked between the uk and america

''They say that while American authorities need to only show “reasonable suspicion,” which entails outlining the crime, punishment and a justifiable reason
for focusing in on a suspect, British authorities have the weight of “probable cause” on their shoulders, where they must provide evidence of guilt in order to
extradite a suspect from the US''
But first the knox case.

Crucially, Judge Nencini said the court had arrived at a motivation for the crime, adding that it would emerge fully when a detailed reasoning for last week's judgment is published in the coming months

The bar owner who was falsely accused by Amanda Knox of killing Meredith Kercher has criticised the American's decision not to be in an Italian court on
Thursday when the verdict in her retrial is delivered.Patrick Lumumba, who ran a bar in Perugia, the Umbrian university town where Kercher was
murdered in Nov 2007, spent two weeks in prison after Miss Knox falsely accused him of being the murderer.
"If Amanda Knox is innocent as she says, then she should come to the court to hear the sentencing," Mr Lumumba told Ansa, an Italian news agency.
"If she really had nothing to do with it, then she should be in the courtroom to hear the ruling of the judges. But she's running away from it.

If the courts find her extraditable it would then be up to John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, to ultimately decide whether to surrender her to Italy.
Christopher L Blakesley, a professor of international law at the University of Nevada, said: "For the detention they would have the US Marshals do it,
or possibly a local FBI office.
"Extradition could take a bit of time. It could take a couple of years, or it might be quick. My guess is it would be at least a year.
"The problem with extradition is there is always room for political pressure. By rejecting it they (the US government) would be buying diplomatic troubles
with Italy and all countries with whom we have treaties

* Gary McKinnon (born 10 February 1966) is a Scottish[1] systems administrator and hacker who was accused in 2002 of perpetrating the "biggest military
computer hack of all time,"[2] although McKinnon himself – who has a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome – states that he was merely looking for evidence
of free energy suppression and a cover-up of UFO activity and other technologies potentially useful to the public

.
Mr McKinnon's lawyers make their case to the Law Lords. They argue that allowing the extradition would be an "abuse of proceedings", because threats had been made
against him by US authorities - life imprisonment if he did not co-operate and a "lesser" sentence if he did co-operate

. If extradited, McKinnon could find himself facing up to 70 years in a U.S. prison. The process has been blasted by McKinnon’s mother, Janis Sharp,
who’s said her son has “lost almost 10 years of his life and has served a nine-and-a-half year sentence of psychological torture, despite the crown prosecuting
service testifying to the court in 2009 that the US has provided not one shred of evidence of any extraditable offence … because they are not required to
The agreement was negotiated in 2003, when both the U.S. and Britain were intent on cracking down on possible terrorists.
Today, however, most critics of the treaty are quick to point out the discrepancy in the way each extradition process is carried out.
They say that while American authorities need to only show “reasonable suspicion,” which entails outlining the crime, punishment and a justifiable reason
for focusing in on a suspect, British authorities have the weight of “probable cause” on their shoulders, where they must provide evidence of guilt in order to
extradite a suspect from the US. Critics can point to the numbers. Reports show that 130 people had been extradited to the U.S. under the treaty while only
54 people have faced similar extradition to the UK
