  • Filep Karma is serving 15 years in prison for simply raising a flag. The former civil servant was arrested in 2004 for raising a flag symbolizing Papuan independence from Indonesia. Amnesty International considers him a prisoner of conscience and seeks his immediate and unconditional release. His colleague YusakPakage was freed in July 2010, after campaigning by Amnesty International members. Now Indonesia must free Filep!
  • Student leader MajidTavakkoli was arrested on December 7, 2009, for speaking at a demonstration marking Student Day in Iran. Following an unfair trial, one which his lawyer was not allowed attend, he was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison. He now suffers from a serious respiratory condition that may deteriorate while he is imprisoned. He is a prisoner of conscience, jailed solely for peacefully exercising his human right to freedom of expression.
