Free at last, thanks to Amnesty
Free at last... they all owe their lives to Amnesty. That is the headline of an article in the Observer describing how four political prisoners were released because of Amnesty International.
One man was held for five years at Guantánamo Bay. A Burmese woman was forced to stay awake for weeks, while a Cuban writer and journalist is now writing a book based on his experiences in prison for a total of 87 months and a poet and academic from Malawi was in prison there for three and a half years before his release.
