Update on Carlos Alberto Torres, Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Parole Hearing

Message from Carlos Alberto Torres/Mensaje de Carlos Alberto Torres

As many of you know, I was supposed to meet with the Parole Board on Thursday January 22nd, 2009. After evaluating this period of time and various unexpected things, I have decided to postpone the parole hearing for a few months. The Parole Board has agreed to the postponement and will hear my case in either April or May. I am fine and am optimistic that the process is going well. I am confident this is the right decision.

Como es de su conocimiento tenia pautado para este jueves 22 de enero de 2009 la audiencia frente a la Comision de Libertad Bajo Palabra (Parole Board). Luego de evaluar el momento y varios imprevistos he determinado aplazar la vista frente al Parole por unos meses. La comision ya a aceptado posponer la vista y estar viendo mi caso en audiencia entre abril y mayo de 2009. Me encuentro bien y optimista ya que el proceso esta fluyendo adecuadamente. Est oy confiado en que esta desicion es la mas prudente.

Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Carlos Alberto Torres is going before the Federal Parole Board in April or May!


Now more than ever, we need to show the Parole Board that he has international support. We need to send the Parole board thousands of these letters! We must flood their mail boxes with our demands for Carlos Alberto’s parole!


The National Boricua Human Rights Network, El Comite de Derechos Humanos de Puerto Rico (The Puerto Rican Human Rights Committee), and The ProLibertad Freedom Campaign, are calling on all supporters of the Puerto Rican Political Prisoners to sign the letter and mail it to:

Jan Susler (Lawyer)
1180 N. Milwaukee Ave. 3rd Fl.
