Spend Time In Jail
Clive Gillis, 58, was released yesterday after three days in prison when a judge threw out the case against him and his wife Nina. Mrs Gillis was freed from the hospital ward of a women's jail.So once again we see how easily it is for innocent people in Perugia, Italy to have their lives upset and their freedom abruptly ended for dubious reasons. Since the Amanda Knox travesty, however, Perugian judges seem to be on the lookout for such nonsense, well aware that the world is watching.
The GP from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, was the victim of jealousy from his neighbours, according to Niclaflavia Restivo, the judge who ruled the case lacked "any serious evidence".
It is amazing to me just how ready the Perugian police are to arrest first and ask questions later. Couldn't they have performed an initial investigation first? Interviewed the doctor, ran a background check? Discussed a possible arrest with a judge in advance? But no, the spirit of Mussolini is alive and well and living in Perugia.
