There are also, however, more mundane reasons that Italian justice never seems to resolve anything. It’s partly a question of meritocracy: in a land in which appointments are invariably made through nepotism rather than competence, it’s perhaps inevitable that any investigation has holes in it and that decent lawyers are able to find them.
It’s the sad conclusion of Tobias Jones, on the Guardian, few days ago. The story starts from Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito winning their appeal in Perugia, few days ago, and takes a wider look at the Judiciary system in Italy.
There’s something for media as well.
