Stop the DA Office’s Cover-up!
July 7: MARCH & RALLY! 12 noon at the DA’s office across from City Hall
# On May 30, the Philly DA’s Office brushed off a judge’s order to release all records of former DA Ron Castille’s involvement in Mumia’s case.
# It follows a landmark US Supreme Court decision that ruled judges MUST remove themselves from any case they had a hand in prosecuting. There are 14 prisoners fighting similar appeals. Mumia is one of them.
# Ron Castille was assistant Philly DA during Mumia’s 1982 trial and the city’s DA when his office opposed Abu-Jamal’s appeals in 1988. When Mumia’s case reached the state’s highest court, his lawyers challenged now Judge Castille to recuse himself, but he refused.
# Under court order, the Philly DA’s office released a paltry 50 pages of public record, continuing the outrageous cover-up. The judge’s latest order gives the DA until July 7 to comply.
Keep the pressure on! The people forced the courts to take Mumia off death row!
THIS FIGHT COULD WIN HIS FREEDOM! CALL NOW!
