In 2004 – 2005, she attended Dr. Rafil Dhafir’s entire 17-week trial as an ACLU court watcher. He was convicted on 59 or 60 counts and sentenced to 22 years in federal prison for his “crime of compassion” – for using his own funds and what he could raise through his Help the Needy charity to provide essential to life aid to Iraqis under punitive sanctions from 1990 – 2003.
The latest on his case and the plight of political prisoners in America will be discussed.

LAW has recently sent a letter to the RCMP War Crimes Program requesting them to: begin an investigation of George W. Bush for aiding, abetting and counseling torture at Guantánamo Bay prison, Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, Bagram prison in Afghanistan and other places.
