Free Fathi El Jahmi sign now

We the undersigned call upon Colonel Muammar Qaddhafi, Lybian leader, TO FREE Fathi El JAHMI.

According to Human Rights Watch, he may face the death penalty after being charged with meeting a foreign official and "defaming" Libyan leader Col.
Muammar Qaddhafi.

Fathi was jailed in 2002 after he reportedly stated that reform within Libya would never take place in the absence of a constitution, pluralism and democracy. He was released on March 12, 2004.

After his release, he gave several media interviews in which he continued to call for reform within Libya. Two weeks later, on March 26, he was abducted from his home by Libyan security forces and returned to prison. The Libyan regime has been unresponsive to concerns voiced by
governments and human rights organizations about the circumstances of
his arrest and imprisonment.

An engineer and former provincial governor, Fathi is 65 years old. He suffers from diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. He has been held in solitary confinement at an internal security facility for close to two years. Both Physicians for Human Rights and his family report that he is receiving inadequate health care and his life may be in danger. His family has been made to suffer as well. They have allegedly lost their business and remain under constant surveillance.

We are concerned that broad security laws are used in Libya to prosecute people for peaceful political and religious activities. As you know, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts that all people have the right to freedom of opinion and expression and the right to peaceful
assembly and association. In Libya, joining a political party or an independent labor union are crimes punishable by death.

Fathi Eljahmiвs continued imprisonment is an affront to all who believe in democracy and freedom of expression.
