Supporting freedom for Hakamada Iwao
Devizes Group supporting freedom for Hakamada Iwao outside the Old Town Lock-Up
March 27th sees a day of action in Japan exactly one year since Hakamada Iwao was released from Tokyo Detention Centre after 48 years on Death Row. Amnesty Japan, together with the Japan Bar Association are seeking to put pressure on the Tokyo High Court and the Tokyo High Prosecutors to accept his innocence.
Hakamada had his 79th birthday on March 10th, the first time he has been able to celebrate his birthday outside prison
since he was 30.
