"European Court of Human Rights reaffirms that Amanda Knox’s rights were violated

The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, announced Tuesday that a closed court hearing reaffirmed the court’s January decision that Amanda Knox’s defense rights had been violated in 2007 during police questioning about the murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher.

The court had ruled this January that Italy had to pay approximately $20,000 in damages and legal costs to Knox for failing to provide her with a lawyer or proper translator during hours of police questioning on Nov. 6, 2007, during the initial stages of the investigation into Kercher’s murder in Perugia, Italy.

In rejecting the request, the court made the ruling final, and the Italian state will have to pay Knox damages. The judgment will be transmitted to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, which supervises the enforcement of European Court judgments. This should end Knox’s legal proceedings in Italy."

This news article leaves out any mention of a revision proceeding.
