I heard about the case of Amanda Knox recently (American convicted of murder in Italy), and found out that when Amanda was accused, her aunt was in Germany, and urged her to cross the border and return to the U.S. rather than face trial in Italy.
This raises an interesting question. Let's assume for argument's sake that you were accused of a serious crime in a foreign country and you knew you didn't do it. Would you get out of Dodge? Would you feel an obligation to abide by the legal processes in that country? If you know you aren't denying justice, is it wrong to return to your country of citizenship? What if the legal system you are accused by is corrupt, and your trial, if you get one, will probably not be fair?
