Rudy Guede’s interview with Franca Leosini on RAI 3 Italian show Storie Maledette (Cursed Stories) has been translated into English thanks to Eric Paroissien. Rudy Guede is the third person charged with the murder of Meredith Kercher along with Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. Eight years after the murder Rudy Guede speaks to the media for the first time. While Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were acquitted last year, Rudy Guede remains in prison serving a 16-year-sentence.
Knox and Sollecito were very upset by the airing of Rudy Guede’s interview and both of their lawyers have threatened to sue the tv station for any damage done to their reputations. Knox’s lawyer went so far as to call Guede ‘the king of liars.’ In the interview Guede points the finger at Knox and Sollecito, standing by his original story that they were both present at the scene of the crime.
The full interview is two hours long. In it Rudy Guede talks about his background and he responds to the negative way he has been portrayed in the press and by Knox and Sollecito in court. He also describes how he knew Meredith and Amanda. Guede shares, step-by-step, what happened the night Meredith Kercher was murdered. He claims that Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were there when Meredith was killed. He also says that he is innocent.
