Giuliano Magnini, the prosecutor who fabricates evidence, poor film., 18 June 2011
Author: gonzofaratro from Switzerland

Of all "true stories" I've ever seen, this is by far the worst ever, this film is beyond belief, how come the research is so poor and superficial ?

This film fails at being true,it's inconsistent and poorly researched, if you know something about Mario Spezi and Amanda Knox, then you also know that Giuliano Mignini lacks all ability for common sense and can never seem to provide ANY UNALTERED evidence.

I came across this Amanda's case while reading a book called " the monster of Florence" an amazing chronicle of mediocrity and corruption during one of the most well know cases of serial murders in Italy.

Giuliano Magnini, the prosecutor fabricated evidence, played with it, invented a orgy/drugs/sex/blood sect, (sound familiar?) sent a respected reporter to jail, tapped phones.... was even given a conviction and jail time ... and guess what, due to the system in Italy he can still be a prosecutor and worst, can do the same all over again !

He landed Amanda's case and with it is trying to create a smoke curtain to erase his past, how unfortunate this young lady was, to fall victim to this monster, to get a mentally unstable man as her prosecutor, a man that will do and lie shamelessly to make his point, a man that even refused to accept other man's innocence because it contradicted his case.

The real criminal is Giuliano Mignini, a monster that in the USA will be locked for life for what he has done, yes ... he is the one prosecuting Amanda.

Do yourselves a favor, if you like true crime, read The Monster of Florence by Douglas Preston and Mario Spezi

EDIT : - Well, we all know better now, Amanda is free, a mistake of the justice system in Italy, admitted by them, the evidence was all fabricated or non existing, no DNA just a crazy prosecutor and a lot of crazy people around him. This films hould be removed, burned and re made.
