Albert Woodfox, Last of the Angola Three, To Be Freed After 43 Years in Solitary Confinement | Democracy Now! Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Albert Woodfox, Last of the Angola Three, To Be Freed After 43 Years in Solitary Confinement | Democracy Now!: Supporters say Albert Woodfox, the longest-serving U.S. prisoner in solitary confinement, is about to be released in Louisiana after he pled no contest to murdering a prison guard in 1972. His two prior convictions were overturned based on racial prejudice and lack of evidence.

At a hearing this morning in a St. Francisville courtroom, Woodbox entered his plea to lesser charges than the murder for which he was indicted of last year for the third time. He was sentenced to 42 years but has already served a 45 year sentence.

His legal team told The Times Picayunne that Woodfox pleaded "no contest" to two lesser charges: manslaughter and aggravated burglary, and noted this is not an admission of guilt.

Woodfox’s release is expected soon from the West Feliciana Parish jail, where he had been held pending his third trial.

Slovenia: How a neo-Nazi expos� almost landed a journalist in jail - Index on Censorship | Index on Censorship Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Slovenia: How a neo-Nazi expos� almost landed a journalist in jail - Index on Censorship | Index on Censorship: Delic, a journalist for the well-respected daily newspaper Delo, was being charged with disseminating classified information. According to the stern-faced officers at her mother’s door, she could face up to three years in prison if found guilty.

“She called me up and was freaking out,” Delic said. She was furious and didn’t understand why the police went to her family home, as she is registered as living elsewhere. “I told my mother to give the phone to one of the police officers,” she said. “I first asked them to apologise to my mother.”

Delic learned that she was to be charged with a criminal offence and was summoned to come in for questioning at the police station in Ljubljana. The charge, she would soon learn, related to her work reporting on alleged connections between the ruling right-wing Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) and the controversial neo-Nazi movement Blood and Honour.

“The charges were ridiculous,” she said. “They said that I had published classified information from the Slovenian Intelligence and Security Agency. But all the information they came up with was public information. They really didn’t have a case.”
