Dear Friends:

 
Last month my client, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and I sent letters to officials in Paris in response to a fraudulent political attempt to have his honorary citizenship there revoked.  I am pleased to report that the effort, based upon misrepresentations and lies, has failed.
 
Mumia, a great and courageous journalist, continues to be an honorary citizen of Paris.  Further,  the street named after him in Saint Denis remains "Rue Mumia Abu-Jamal".
 
Linn Washington, a prominent Philadelphia journalist and university professor, recently wrote an enlightening article in CounterPunch on the entire affair: The Mumia Abu-Jamal Case After 25 Years: Still More Keystone Kops Antics, Dec. 1, 2006.  It should be read and circulated, and can be found at  http://www.counterpunch.org/washington12012006.html.
 
Your interest is appreciated.
 
With best wishes,

Robert
