On November 4, 2015, Amanda Knox was convicted of murder and other crimes in the death of Meredith Kercher.
But she is currently on a plane back to Italy to face trial for her role in Kercher’s murder.
The trial has already been delayed twice, as Italy is fighting extradition orders from the United States for Knox and her defense team.
Last week, the Italian Foreign Ministry said it had received a request from the U.S. to send Knox back to the country, where she was granted asylum in December, 2018.
In a tweet, the ministry said, “Italian Foreign Ministry has received a U. S. request to send Amanda Knox to Italy.”
The request was reportedly made after Italy granted the extradition order on February 26, 2019, citing Knox’s “excellent” treatment.
In recent years, Italy has taken in at least 10,000 people from the Philippines and other countries, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
But, as reported in The New York Times last year, some of those immigrants have been in the country for years and have not been given the same access to the courts as people who have been deported, and are unable to speak Spanish.
A number of activists have voiced concerns about the continued detention of these people, especially in the case of Amanda Knox, and their inability to participate in trials, access to education and access to housing.
Amanda Knox’s case has been controversial because the case has not been made public until the case was sealed in 2016.
In addition to the Italian case, several other countries have been accused of having failed to provide adequate protection to refugees.
The Philippines is among them, and the country has a long history of persecution of people who are undocumented.
For instance, in 2012, then-President Benigno Aquino III was accused of human rights abuses in the island nation, including the murder of an activist, according the Associated Press.
In February 2017, Aquino was impeached and removed from office.
He is now seeking re-election, and his party is trying to form a government.
Last month, Philippine Foreign Minister Albert del Rosario told The Philippine Star that the country is ready to welcome asylum seekers in the coming months.
“We are preparing to welcome these people to our country,” Del Rosario said.
“Our country has the highest number of refugees in the world, more than 200,000.
We are ready to accommodate them.”
The Philippines was the first country in the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to provide refuge to asylum seekers.
The UNHCR said in a statement last year that it is aware of cases of abuse of asylum seekers by authorities, but that it does not yet have an estimate of the number of asylum-seekers in the Philippine system.
Amnesty International has said that more than a thousand people were detained in the first half of 2019, but the organization has not seen statistics on how many were returned to their home countries.
In November, Amnesty International released a report that said that there were nearly 700,000 undocumented Filipinos living in detention, and that nearly half of them had not been granted access to legal representation, and had been denied access to adequate health care and education.
