Corte Suprema di Cassazione, Palazzo di Giustizia
Kristeva, our own citizen journalist, from Perugia Murder File, attended the hearing. The location of the hearings had been moved to the Great Hall to accommodate the large crowd, but cell phone use was banned. This didn’t prevent Kristeva from finding a way to provide regular, timely updates, for which we’re all immensely grateful.
On that Friday, word had quickly spread that a verdict was imminent. Shockingly, Kristeva tweeted “Acquitted.” Kristeva is fluent in Italian. No mistake.
Fom independent journalist Andrea Vogt who has been convering the case from the beginning:
