Bail Hearing Scheduled for Tarek Mehanna
08 Feb 2011
Modified: 08:50:00 AM
A bail hearing has been scheduled for Dr. Tarek Mehanna who has been unjustly imprisoned under 23-hour solitary confinement for 15 months after refusing to be an FBI informant against his community. Dr. Mehanna is a well respected, loved and outspoken member of his community who has spent his time as a scholar, friend, teacher and leader.
Dr. Mehanna and his family have requested that you come to the courthouse on the day of the hearing to express your support and belief in his innocence. We ask that you help us to show the Judge why Dr. Mehanna should be released on bail. THIS HEARING IS THE MOST CRUCIAL ONE YET: this will be the first opportunity for Tarek's lawyers to make a strong case for Tarek's right to have bail set and be home with his family pending trial.

The date and time as follows:

Wednesday, February 23rd at 3pm
Moakley Federal Courthouse
1 Courthouse Way
Boston, MA

Please spread the word to others and show up as early as possible!! Because the hearing starts at 3, it is best to be there well before then.

This is a big opportunity for you to show your support for this man who has served his community and defended justice. It is crucial that we have as many supporters as possible show up to court. This is a real chance for Dr. Mehanna to be released on bail and we cannot stress enough how much your presence is needed!

A rally outside the courthouse will follow the hearing regardless of the outcome. We ask that you join us for the rally.

Let's make this a strong turnout! We have to show Dr. Mehanna, his family, the judge, the press and everyone else how much love and support he has! We want Dr. Mehanna back in our community where he belongs.

Thank you all for your support on behalf of Dr. Mehanna, his family, and the support committee.

*Reminder: Be prepared for the possibility that the government will change the date last minute. Remember to bring 2 forms of ID (at least one photo ID) and that no cell phones or another electronics will be allowed into the court. We also ask that you dress appropriately for the courtroom.*
