Freedom for Jaime Yovanovic Prieto!
28 Aug 2002
Send protest letters to the South African authorities!
On the 6th of August Jaime Yovanovic Prieto was expelled from Italy and deported to South Africa. On the 9th of August he was arrested by the South African authorities. Now the South African authorities are about to negotiate his extradition to Chile where he is threatened with the death penalty for his anti-fascist resistance against the dictatorship of Pinochet.
It is our political and moral duty to stand up for anti-fascist fighters and prevent their being punished for their legitimate resistance against exploitation and oppression!

Please forward this letter of protest to the South African ministers in

Dr. M.G. Buthelezi, Minister of Home Affairs:

Ms N Mapisa-Nqakula, Deputy Ministry of Home Affairs:
peternk (at)

Mr Leslie Mashokwe, Head Communication:

as well as a copy of every protest letter to: camp (at)

more information about the case of Jaime Yovanovic Prieto:

Dear Sir,

I was informed that your government has arrested Jaime Yovanovic Prieto and wants to extradite him to Chile, where Prieto is wanted because of the brave and anti-fascist resistance he offered during the dictatorship of Pinochet.

With this in mind, I can hardly believe, that the country of Nelson Mandela is about to commit a terrible betrayal of the anti-fascist movement by extraditing Jaime Yovanovic Prieto to Chile, where he is threatened with the death penalty.

So my urgent appeal to you is
1. not to extradite Jaime Yovanovic Prieto to Chile
2. to immediately release Jaime Yovanovic Prieto
3. to grant political asylum to Jaime Yovanovic Prieto

Yours respectfully,
