In a court case that could eventually lead to Mumia’s release from prison, Judge Leon Tucker has ordered the District Attorney’s office to present new testimony with reference to former Philadelphia District Attorney Ronald D. Castille. The hearing will take place on the morning of January 17, 2018.
 
As a Pennsylvania Supreme Court judge, Castille refused to disqualify himself when Mumia’s case came before his court despite having been the District Attorney during Mumia’s prior appeals. The US Supreme Court has ruled such conduct unconstitutional.
 
The people’s movement forced the courts to take Abu-Jamal off death row in 2011, but his release from prison has not yet been won. Despite his innocence, he was re-sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.
 
The people’s movement again fought for and won hepatitis C treatment for Mumia, but he now suffers from cirrhosis of the liver and continues to suffer pain and severe itching from a skin ailment. Life without parole is still a death sentence for thousands of prisoners, especially when decent health care is routinely denied for people behind bars.
 
Mumia has been unjustly imprisoned for 36 years. He should be released now.
