Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorDaniel Guedalla
Location Details
The Court of Appeal, The Strand, London WC2A 2LL, England
Protest outside the Court of Appeal in London on 1st November 2001 - the day the court is giving its judgment in the case of Ms Samar Alami and Mr Jawad Botmeh, two Palestinians wrongly convicted in England in 1996 of conspiring to cause the 1994 London explosions at the Israeli Embassy and Balfour House. They are innocent, and most of the evidence against them related to their campaigning work in support of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. Furthermore, the prosecution have admitted that they are withholding vital evidence about the identity of a known terrorist organisation and/or government, unconnected to Samar or Jawad, that was apparently planning to carry out the bombings. During the appeal hearing the judges also refused to allow the defence to call a new witness to give evidence about a further possible suspect that he had reported to the police around the time of the bombings. The British government and security services are determined to keep Samar and Jawad in prison for crimes they clearly did not commit, all in the interests of political expediency and protecting whatever vested interests require that the truth be covered up. Please lend us your support, either by joining the protest, or by flooding the government and the court with emails in support of Samar and Jawad. More details on our website: www.freesaj.org.uk
