AS I recall, news reports said the confession was written in Italian and may have been orally read prior to signing. When recanting, Knox claimed that she didn't understand the language, but she is a scholar specializing in Italian.<quoted text>
I see. I am *all* for questioning *any* authority, 24/7, so I am totally open to skepticism concerning the government and any prejudice they might show for whatever reason (personal relation, financial pay-offs, etc.).
I did not look into the Knox case, so I did not know she confessed. Did she print her confession out? Or was it a confession written out for her and she simply signed the paper (without possibly reading or understand what was written beforehand)?
I guess it'd depend on that.
Each country follows a specific protocol when taking self incriminating evidence, Usually some third person is present. Whatever the case, the treatment of Knox, in Italy, should be compared to that of citizens of other countries esp thoe being held in black prisons.
