Hi, Global for me followers!
There are two new stories up on the GFM ticker- we’ve been following two intriguing trials.
The murder of Meredith Kercher.
Over in Italy we have the reopening of trial of Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, which has been making the headlines but here at GFM we are wondering if she is really getting a fair trial or if the media’s fascination with portraying her as the femme-fatale “Foxy-Knoxy” has biased the case.

Meanwhile over in Peru a scandalous case involving corruption at the highest echelons of power. Former Peruvian President, Alberto Fujimori, who is already serving a 25 year sentence for alleged human rights abuses in his war on drugs and embezzlement of state money- is due to take to the stand again. Over in Peru, suggests that the majority of the population feel he warrants a pardon- can this happen? Fujimori is adamant that the charges are politically motivated.
