The objective of this presentation is to review questions which may be of use to ask Amanda Knox in her courtroom appearance on 12 June 2009, the first time she will respond to questions since abruptly aborting the questioning session of 18 December 2007 (a year and a half ago), when, with her lawyer by her side, she decided to invoke her right to not reply.
For other presentations on this case, timelines, multi-opinioned debate, transcripts, images, and articles and much more content, I highly recommend the following two sites which have resulted from Steve Huff’s True Crime Weblog on this tragedy:
Perugia Murder File
True Justice For Meredith Kercher
(While you’re at it, visit Steve’s current blog, published by Village Voice Media: http://www.truecrimereport.com/)
Also take a moment to check out the excellent analysis on this case on Miss Represented’s blog.
Any irony or sarcasm which may be encountered in the presentation or our discussions is not meant by any means to trivialise the pain and suffering, and brutal senseless murder that Meredith experienced, nor to reduce her memory.
As we go through the scenarios of what may have happened in the crime, the only moment which is truly important is the day when all the evidence is presented in court, like in any other serious crime case.
I can only hope that there will be one single ending, that justice is served to those responsible for each of the crimes which have been determined by the Italian judiciary. I am buoyed by the fact that the victim’s family has continued to express confidence in the Italian justice system.

In RS's modified declaration to investigators, he said that at 18:00, he and AK leave the girls' house and go downtown, passing through Piazza Grimana, Piazza Morlacchi, the main fountain and Corso Vannucci. Raffaele's early declaration.
In AK's first declaration to police, she said she and RS left at 17:00 h, going to RS's place, where they spent the rest of the night together.

Edda (Amanda’s mother): has stated on several of the TV and magazine interviews that she told Amanda to call the police (pending links)
Raffaele: I had already called 112 when the Postal and Telecommunications Police arrived (pending link)
BUT the Postal and Telecommunications Police were in fact already there even before Amanda called to Edda at 12:47!!!!!! (pending link)
When you called your mother, where were you exactly, and who was with you?
What phone calls - if any - had you already made?
Had any contact with any sort of Italian law enforcement agency been made? (for example: Carabinieri, Postal Police, Custom agents, Endangered wildlife protection officers ... ).
Did you immediately follow up your mother's suggestion to call the police? Or did you wait for a while?
How long after your first call to your mother did you make your second call?
Did your mother ask you if you had been involved in any questionable actives?
Did you tell her you were in trouble or did you offer any such information to her?
What action did your mother say she would take to help you? What type of help did you ask her for?

Questioning on 18 Dec 2007: Amanda invokes her right to not respond to questions, after 2 questions from Prosecutor Mignini which provoked an emotional response from her (violent shaking and crying as I recall). She looked at her lawyer and then at Mignini and stated: I want to avail myself of my right to not declare
There's a famous Spanish professor of the University of Salamanca, Fray Luis de León, who was arrested in the 1500's and spent 5 years in prison. On his release he returned to the University, and started his first class following his imprisonment with the sentence "As I was saying yesterday ..." . Please! Mr. Mignini, ask the same questions as you had in your notebook on 18 December 2007! And ask the rest of the questions from that same list too!
