Many thanks to each and every one of you for your continued support for this campaign: it is without a doubt the only reason Hicham has been able to fight for justice for so long.
On Friday 6 March, Hicham was sentenced to a nine-month custodial sentence after being convicted of ‘securing avoidance of enforcement action via deceptive means’. He is currently being held at HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes. As Hicham’s legal team are launching an appeal against the conviction we cannot make any further comment yet but we promise we’ll get more details to you as soon as we can.
There are three important things you can do to help Hich:
1) Please write to Hich!
Letters been keeping Hicham’s spirits high. Please enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your letter so that Hich can reply. Try and write more than once if you can. Even if you don’t know Hich, a few words in a letter can make a big difference.
Write to: Hicham Yezza, XP9266, HMP Woodhill, Tattenhoe Street, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom, MK4 4DA.
If you can’t post a letter, you can write to Hicham via: http://www.emailaprisoner.com/, which costs 25p per message. Bear in mind that this method is less reliable than post and messages can take longer to reach Hicham.
2) Do you know Hich personally and have you been involved in society/community activities with him?
You might be able to help Hich’s legal case. Please email musabz [at] gmail [dot] com for more details.
3) Donate to the legal fund.
There is still a backlog of legal funds which needs to be paid. Thanks to everyone for their help so far – Hicham has not been permitted to work since May 2008 and all donations have made a huge difference.
The best way to donate is via an online bank transfer to the campaign fund account.
