Jalil Muntaqim 2016 Parole Appeal

Jalil Muntaqim's parole board hearing was held on Tuesday, June 21, 2016. We are enraged to report that Jalil received notice on June 28, 2016, that he was once again rejected by the Parole Board. This is the ninth time Jalil has been to the Board, and the ninth time he has been denied, despite having an excellent record and meeting all requirements to be released on parole. You can read the obviously biased parole board decision here.

Also, we have received the transcript of Jalil's parole hearing. We highly recommend that you read the transcript.

There will definitely be an Article 78 appeal of this denial. We will need everyone's help in preparing for the appeal and will definitely be waging a strong campaign.

We will keep everyone posted on upcoming steps and actions to take. In the meantime, please take the time to write to Jalil and him know he is in our hearts and on our minds:

There have been several favorable decisions against the parole board recently, one of which can be read here.

Jalil has filed a petition with Governor Cuomo requesting commutation of sentence to time served, as it is impossible to have an unbiased parole hearing. He requests that people say in their own words why he should be released using #clemency4jalil. Gov. Cuomo's twitter handle is: @NYGovCuomo. Jalil would like this to go viral on the internet.
