Gabriele Giambrone Provides Infomation On Sky News
A. Hi, Colin. Well, this is a difficult question because from a legal point of view we must remember that Amanda Knox is still an innocent person because in the Italian judicial system, everyone is deemed to be innocent until the three steps of the appeals procedure are completed so assuming that the Corte Cassazione, the High Court will uphold the judgement, it is questionable whether she would return to Italy but in my opinion, she would not come back to Italy.
Q. Is it right to say, Gabriele, there is only one, or are there more appeal steps left?
A. Yes, that’s right, there is one more appeal. The lawyers for Raffaele Sollecito have already announced that they are preparing an appeal. The final appeal will be to the Corte Cassazione, which is the Italian Supreme Court, which can only look at matters of law and not at issues of fact, so any possibility of appeal would only turn on whether any legal arguments could be put forward, but the findings, the facts as such, have already been established by the Court of Appeal and so no longer can be put into debate.
Q. Yeah, and who would make that final decision, Gabriele, in terms of whether…I mean, assuming that that final court upholds the conviction? Would it be a politician or would it be a judge who would make that final decision to say, “OK, we now want to send the papers to America and we are seeking the extradition of this woman” because obviously, to some degree, the story is politically loaded -- lots of media attention – whose decision would it be?
A. Ah, no, no, no. We have a very clear distinction between the political system and the judicial powers here in Italy so it would be a judicial decision. What would happen is that effectively, if Amanda Knox and Rafaelle Sollecito were found guilty at the third step of the appeal, then there would be an order for Amanda Knox to be extradited and what may happen I presume, is that her American lawyers would argue that under American law, she should not be brought back to Italy under the principle of “double jeopardy.”
Q. And in terms of extradition proceedings between America and Italy, how well used is that treaty?
A. Well, the treaty has been used and it’s fair to say there is a good cooperation between the two countries, however it is also fair to say that the American authorities are very protective and they interpreted the treaty perhaps to protect their own citizens, so whether from a factual point of view, it is my own personal view that she would return to Italy, I think the chances are very low. From an Italian legal point of view, the judgements of the Court of Appeal in Perugia – the acquittal judgement – has been annulled as though it never existed which means it doesn’t have any legal standing, therefore it is wrong to say Amanda Knox was found not guilty so there is no double jeopardy as such. There is one judgement, which is the judgement of the Court of Appeal in Florence. She has been found guilty and therefore under Italian principles, we have no doubt that she should be extradited. Whether she will come to Italy is a separate matter.
Q. Gabriele Giambrone, as Managing Partner of Giambrone Law, who are an anglo-Italian law firm, Gabriele, thanks very much indeed.
A. (nods thanks)
