Some earlier work worth sharing:
Before starting this site up, I had been contributing to truejustice.org, CLICK HERE, for a few years. The site is well worth reading through, and contains dozens and dozens of English translations of Italian court documents and transcripts.
This is a site, edited by Peter Quennell, devoted to showing the truth to the world of murder victim, Meredith Kercher, who was stabbed to death on November 1, 2007. Rudy Guede is still serving time for her murder, while his accomplices, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, got off due to “judge shopping” by defence counsel.
The site attracts readers and contributors from all areas of the world, and many professionals, such as doctors and lawyers.
Here are some of the more relevant links on comparative law, between Italian law and English Common Law:
(1) CLICK HERE, for a comparison to Canadian criminal law
(2) CLICK HERE, information on perjury, and making false accusations.
(3) CLICK HERE, for bail, extradition, and other crimes.
(4) CLICK HERE, for the U.S and Canada v. Italy.
(5) CLICK HERE, for differences in criminal appeals between Canada/U.S. and Italy.
(6) CLICK HERE, differences in double jeopardy between Canada and the U.S.
(7) CLICK HERE, for a landmark ruling on rights of self represented persons in Canada.
While the ongoing murder case was of course the main focus of the truejustice.org website, there was much discussion on how different Italian law was from the British Common Law countries. As such, it was interesting to do a compare and contrast series with these different systems.
Again, the TJMK website is definitely worth a serious read, for anyone interested in knowing the full truth of the murder case.
