Amanda Knox Proclaims Innocence, Vows to Fight Injustice

A emotional Amanda Knox has asserted her innocence and victimhood after being reconvicted in Italy. In an interview with Sky TG24, Knox tearfully expressed her belief that she has been wrongly accused for 17 years. She adamantly stated that she did not slander anyone and is determined to defend herself against the unjust accusations.

Knox, who was previously acquitted of the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher in 2011, faced new accusations of slandering an innocent man, Patrick Lumumba. Despite being acquitted by Italy’s highest court in 2015, a recent court decision found her guilty of falsely accusing Lumumba of the murder.

During the interview, Knox emphasized that she has always strived to tell the truth and has endured years of fighting to clear her name. She expressed disappointment with the recent court verdict but vowed to appeal to Italy’s supreme court. Knox recounted the psychological torture and mistreatment she endured during police interrogations, emphasizing the impact it had on her life.

Knox, now a mother of two, continues to advocate for criminal justice reform and support those who have been wrongfully incarcerated. Despite the challenges she has faced, Knox remains hopeful for a better understanding between herself and Italy in the future.

The emotional interview concluded with Knox embracing her husband after the court’s decision. Rudy Guede, who was previously convicted of the murder, was released from prison in 2021 after serving 13 years of a 16-year sentence.
