Mumia Abu-Jamal to have Court Hearing
05 Jan 2005
A message from the lead counsel for Mumia Abu-Jamal, explaining that Mumia will have a hearing on Friday, February 11th, 2005. Go to the following link to help out: http://www.freemumia.org/help.html
HEARING SET FOR MUMIA ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2005

Dear Friends:
Today official notification was received that on Friday, February 11, 2005, there will be a hearing concerning Mumia Abu-Jamal in the
Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas, Philadelphia before Judge Pamela Pryor Dembe. The hearing will be pursuant to the Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus we filed December 8, 2003 on Mumia's behalf.
Next month the court will issue a memorandum that is to include preliminary rulings on the petition. At that time she will direct counsel
as to how she wishes to proceed. The hearing will be in the Criminal Justice Center, Philadelphia, but to date no courtroom has been assigned.
The issues raised in our habeas corpus petition are:
1. The State Manipulated A Purported Eyewitness To Falsely Identify Petitioner As The Shooter, In Violation Of His Rights Under The Fifth, Sixth Eighth, And Fourteenth Amendments To The United States Constitution.
2. Petitioner Was Found Guilty And Sentenced To Death Through The Use Of A Fabricated Confession, In Violation Of The Fifth,
Eighth And Fourteenth Amendments.
We will advise when more is known about the upcoming hearing.
With best wishes,

Robert
