There's new information this morning about Amanda Knox will she be sent back to Italy that country's highest court ordering it.
A new trial for the murder of her roommate.
Knox and her ex boyfriend's murder convictions were thrown out in 2011.
And after spending four years in Italian jail this is how Amanda Knox react.
What's important for -- -- -- thank -- -- debt every right.
Who's really do mean.
Who's defending didn't need -- what -- my family.
-- This one.
My family's the most important thing here right now and I just want to goat some believe them.
So now a year and a half later will this be repeated and renders the counsel and spokesperson.
For the friends of Amanda Knox and she knows the family well and Amanda are and rather good morning to you live there in Seattle Washington.
Give us an -- agree what what Amanda Knox has been doing.
For the past year and there.
What does she made that statement belt all the press here and writings that that they would give her privacy -- spent time at their -- And so she's been given that here in Seattle she's going to the University of Washington where she -- before she went to Italy before all the trials set track.
She has a boyfriend I mean she was just trying to move on and very quietly so until yesterday well I know a lot of people were stunned I think you were one of them I was stunned yeah well you know when the news came down what is the probability.
That she will go back to Italy and face trial.
I think it's relatively improbable I've of course we're going to be a long -- -- -- in improbable excuse me.
I'm -- -- for a long time back -- extraditions myself a lot of lawyers have not they're they're relatively rare in terms of payments practice.
But the reasons being that the following number one factually.
She's innocent and the -- he sent back.
And that's part of an extradition is there enough evidence to take some going into another country against -- well and I think in his case he answers now.
Second double jeopardy we have it bailout and the fact is is that it's -- double jeopardy taker and another trial after she was acquitted.
That would never happen here in the last and then.
Also there's -- the whole issue criminal defamation there we don't have promote that -- mission here -- civil that's under the what's called the rule of specialty duality.
There would not being extradition on that and also human rights violations and that's been alleged.
For her for her -- statement segregated in a police.
Under -- dress.
Force without interpreter that -- certified without a lawyer and -- to specific questions on the wall here one regard with regard to retire long one with regard to our law.
I wanna ask you about the family and how she's doing -- -- because.
-- they -- contact with him about four weeks or a month ago.
What -- changed based on evidence to allow the highest court in Italy to -- this.
Nothing may have changed from what -- lawyers -- has been saying.
And it's that the state was not allowed to test evidence on need to -- -- appeal.
Where the court had allowed independent experts to retesting evidence those experts said as it was compromised on it was not admissible.
Evidence so it may just be procedural and and not on facts it seems like it's a bit nebulous -- -- It's yes difficult the -- and even today now the US government if there were to extradite one of its citizens they have to say yes right.
Exactly NN has to happen in Seattle with the judge in Seattle.
After considering all of the evidence -- lack of evidence and the other arguments and I just made.
And so that that's something that that we we've seen cases like apple Lansky wasn't extradited from France.
-- master own individual in Seattle high profile case -- just not expect from France.
They don't have the death penalty they don't send people back to the US on -- death penalty case that has been taken up the table of those kinds of cases to look at and Amanda's case.
And that's why you say it's improbable that she would go back -- -- tell me about her family how they react and we got one statement from her.
Here on the screen it was painful to receive the news that the Italian Supreme Court decided to send my case back for revision when the prosecution's theory of my involvement.
And -- -- murder has been repeatedly revealed to be completely.
Unfounded and unfair what you hearing from the fan.
And that it's just devastating and stunning but -- strong like she says she's gonna keep her head held high she knows the truth will set -- -- the -- is on her side.
She's already been acquitted she's been through all of this she can go through Margaret.
With a lot of I think strength and a lot of strength from her family she has a wonderful family.
They've been very supportive -- -- spent over a million dollars in fees they spent all their time to be with her always in Italy throughout the four years of her deal.
And so they'll -- -- four and I think with dignity.
But also they want to clear her name and -- keep doing that until that happens it's an amazing twist yet again thank you and drummer yeah it is I live in Seattle thank you.
