TitleImam Jamil Al-Amin Denied Calls/Mail

In early July Imam Jamil Al-Amin wrote:

"I am currently being denied telephone calls and my mail is being diverted (some). If you would, can you get some people to call the warden at ADX and Eric Holder to inquire as to why this action is being done.  I don't have any institutional violations and have not been informed as to why this is being done."

Don't forget the Imam's number: 99974-555

Dear Attorney General Holder:

I have just written Mr. Charles Daniels, Warden of USP Florence Admax and am also enlisting your help on behalf of one of the prisoners there. I am writing to urge you to do everything in your power to assure that  Imam Jamil Abdulla Al-Amin  (99974-555) receive all telephone calls and his mail.  He has not committed any institutional violation and has not been told why he is not being accorded the right to communicate with the world outside the supermax prison in which he is confined.

Further, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture, Juan Mendez, has stated that solitary confinement is tantamount to torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment. The treatment afforded Imam Jamil Abdulla Al Amin currently violates the United States' obligations under the Convention Against Torture and can only reinforce the need for the kind of prison reform politicians and others are demanding.

Throughout his long ordeal in solitary confinement, Imam Jamil Abdulla Al-Amin has shown extraordinary resilience and courage. Over the years, he has had an exemplary disciplinary record.   Indeed, many  international human rights advocates, among them the Chair of the Islamic  Human Rights Commission, Mr. Massoud  Shadjareh, have spoken out on behalf of Imam Jamil Al-Amin .

Now more than ever it behooves all of us to be vigilant in doing all we can to assure that  every individual receives fair treatment under the law.  Indeed, At the very least, Imam Jamil Al-Amin should be accorded the right to letters and phone calls.
