Jailed Amanda Knox is counting on an appeal to quash her conviction for killing roommate Meredith Kercher, an Italian prison visitor said today.
Walter Verini, an opposition politician in the Chamber of Deputies, spoke to Knox yesterday as part of his monitoring of conditions in the country’s prisons.
A jury in Perugia last week convicted Knox of murdering Meredith Kercher, from Coulsdon, Surrey, in the house they shared there. Knox was sentenced to 26 years.
Mr Verini said Knox told him she still has faith in the Italian justice system, including the appeal her lawyers are preparing.
