"I don't like the fact that every so often another, excuse the term, phony expert appears who, to gain publicity for himself, says all these things."
The Italian news agency ANSA, which also reported the news of Moore's support for Knox, was told by Knox's Perugia lawyer, Luciano Ghirga, that he did not know Moore "and therefore I prefer not to comment on his statements."
"Criticism of the investigation is not new," Ghirga told ANSA, "and I will limit myself to taking note."
Biscotti and his partner, Nicodemo Gentile, have made a final appeal on Guede's behalf to Italy's top court, the Court of Cassation in Rome, which will hear his appeal Dec. 16.
Knox, 23, and Sollecito, 26, have been in prison in Italy for almost three years since their arrest shortly after Kercher's body was found semi-naked with her throat slashed in the house she shared with Knox.
They have appealed their respective convictions to 26 and 25 years in jail, and are scheduled to appear in court in Perugia Nov. 24, in front of a new jury and judges.
Their lawyers have requested an independent review of all forensic evidence, which was hotly contested in the first trial, in the belief that such a review will prove that the evidence placing them on or near the scene of the crime is unreliable.
