Execution by Neglect? Mumia Abu-Jamal Needs Care Now!

Mumia Abu-Jamal Needs Medical Care Now! 

by Prison Radio

April 29, 2015

Since Sunday the 26th Mumia has been held incommunicado at the hands of prison officials.

Watch the Video on Mumia's Condition

On Monday morning Mumia Abu-Jamal was ordered back to the infirmary at SCI Mahanoy in Pennsylvania. All that day his attorney Bret Grote was at the prison. No visitors were allowed, he and Pam Africa could not see Mumia.

There has been no contact with Mumia since Sunday, by his family, doctors, lawyers or supporters and there is grave concern that his condition, untreated and mistreated by prison infirmary doctors, could result in his death.

Watch the Video on Mumia's Condition.

All Out to the Capital

The Dept. of Corrections has turned down Mumia's petition to be given a accurate diagnosis of his condition(s) and his need to be seen by appropriate medical specialists. His doctor has been prevented from talking to treatment staff and visiting Mumia. On Wednesday, April 29th we will be holding a press conference at Gov. Tom Wolf's office in Harrisburg, PA at the Capitol Rotunda at 11am.

At this point we do not know what is happening with Mumia. Keep your eyes on Mumia! Demand family visitation, and legal access. We must speak out for our brother Mumia, just as he has always spoken out for us.

There is not 1 shread of real evidence too conclude his innocence even if somethings were not handled in appropriate manner tht doesn't prove innocence isn't a argument allowed in hearings and will nvr give way for a new trial.

The article is more about the treatment, or lack of medical treatment, of Jamal. As to his innocence; it's not the job of the accused to prove innocence, the onus is on the prosecution to prove guilt. If the prosecution uses dirty tricks, or withholds exculpatory evidence then a case can be made for mistrial. I believe a motion for retrial has already been ruled out; what his defenders would seek I believe is unconditional release. - ape
