Message from Jalil Muntaqim to Friends & Supporters
As many of you have heard, I was once again denied parole for the tenth time. I was given a 15-month denial, essentially because I did not answer a specific question to the satisfaction of the parole commissioners, despite the fact that my answer was an honest one. This definitively speaks to the arbitrariness and subjectivity of parole commissioners’ discretion to decide to release or hold a prisoner. In the same regard, it is difficult to know exactly what each of the three parole commissioners want from a prisoner sitting before them, especially when honesty is a rare quality in this type of situation.
I am extremely grateful for all of the letters, well wishes and support. This denial will be appealed.
