Il processo Meredith e la giustizia italiana: visti dall’estero
L’annullamento della sentenza del processo Meredith è la prima notizia dei principali quotidiani online esteri. A parte il successo garantito per il film a venire, è interessante andare a guardare i commenti dei lettori. Sono centinaia e più che dividersi tra innocentisti e colpevolisti, giudicano l’Italia e il nostro sistema giudiziario. Ma nelle televisioni italiane, oltre ai soliti plastici, è vietato parlare della bancarotta della giustizia e delle possibili soluzioni. Tutto si riduce ai processi e alle leggi ad personam di Berlusconi.
Ecco i commenti presi dagli inglesi Guardian e l’Independent.
“And the farce continues, just goes to show how corrupt and incompetent the italian system is.”
“What a laughing stock Italy is.”
“This is the Italian justice ‘system’, so please do not expect a final ruling in our lifetime.”
“Italy is renown for having a wasteful judiciary. Billions of Euros being spent with no regard for the Italian tax-payer. Italy has already the most lawyers per head of population in the EU.”
“It is no longer possible to have any belief in the italian justice system, which seems to be more concerned with saving face for its discredited police than with establishing the truth.
The authorities cannot accept that verdict, because if they do it shows them how far from fit for purpose the judicial system is.”
“Go go Italian justice system! You’re doing such a great job, don’t give up now”
“the singular ineptitude of the Italian police handling the case, backed up by the Italian courts. To an outsider, Italy does seem blessed with the most ineffectual justice system of any republic that is not an overt dictatorship, with its general culture of bribery and corruption”
“Italian justice is pretty laughable. Do they really expect her to place herself in their hands after the first circus she was subjected to? Whether she committed the crime or not is irrelevant. The Italians simply were not competent enough to prosecute this case properly and the judge rightly released her as a result. If anything the clown who prosecuted this case needs to be put on trial for running a kangaroo court!”
“The point is that if the trial was held in Britain there would have a much greater chance of a conviction or an acquittal. I don’t know the specifics of the case but I know that Italy really needs to get it’s act together before it can take on internationally recognised public cases, less the judiciary embarrasses Italy further”
“Italy wants a re-trail. I hope she doesn’t waste her time flying over for this “re-trial” since Italy themselves do not respect international law nor promises made as far as the two italian sailors who killed the 2 indian fishermen are concerned. They blatantly lied to the indian high court and broke their promises and the italian government is standing firm and not acting to bring the two sailors back to india.”
“So, why should anyone respect what the italians want?”
“I hope the USA tells Italy to get stuffed when they ask for her to be extradited. What a bloody farce”
“Considering all the deceptions, evasions and false accusations by the defendants throughout the investigation, this seems like a sensible decision by the Italian Supreme Court.”
“Italy has learn’t something from india from the recent marine issue. I hope truth prevails and the guilty is punished whoever it is”
“So all of this rumbles on with its inherent costs and, more importantly, the insult to the memory of Meredith Kercher and the pain caused to her family. The fault here lies with the incompetence of the Perugian police and the stupidity of the prosecutor who saw a joint, photos of a female foreigner enjoying herself and halloween constumes and decided there was a drug-fuelled, satanic orgy going on. The sexist provincialism of it all. Vergogna.”
“She’s an American and cannot be tried twice for murder, specially by a corrupt judicial system like that of Italy’.”
“I think the Italian supreme court judges should themselves be investigated for criminal activity.”
“only in Italy could you charge 3 separate defendants on 3 completely different scenarios and convict all 3”
“Outrageous decision. Italian justice must be a contradition in term.”
