The parcel is passed

Giuliano Mignini, the prosecutor in the Sollecito-Knox case, has had his conviction for abuse of office — relating to persecution of journalists and illegal investigations (details here under the 20 April 2010 entry) —  quashed after the Florence appeal court ruled his case should have been heard in Turin.

In theory Mignini can be tried again. But it looks like his case can has been kicked way down the road.

Despite Mario Monti’s promises of ‘Change-Italy’, at ground level things look very much like business as usual.

The Italian press has barely touched on Mignini’s successful appeal. There is a short report here in Italian, and an even shorter one here in English.
