Letters From Current and Former Prisoners
From Rabeh Osman - Italy 22nd August 2010
All praise is due to Allah and peace and blessing be upon his messenger, family and companions
Assalaamu ‘alaykum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuhu,
Firstly I advise you and myself to obey Allah, depend on him in all affairs and to be patient with His decree.
I sent you many letters previously which were held back by the prison, I pray to Allah that this letter reaches you. We are well, all Praise is due to Allah, we miss your news and the news of the Muslims around the world. My brother , all praise is due to Allah, the Milano court freed some brothers completely from all terrorism charges including Habib and Ali Zaydan and Abu Maryam. Now they are to be deported to Tunisia where the killing, rape, torture and humiliation.
Even though the European court stopped deportation to Tunisia as well as the supreme Italian court, the evil terrorist, interior minister is insisting on handing the brothers to the Tunisian government, so please try to do something for them as soon as possible, try to contact the lawyer in London or call anyone who’s able to stop their deportation to Tunisia.
As for my case, I received a letter from the Spanish Court declaring my innocence of all charges and it’s signed by the Italian minister of justice, and with all this they are insisting on keeping me in prison. I’ve been in prison for six years and two months and this is my seventh Ramadan walhamdulillaah.
I sent with this letter, Italian papers which include: A complaint I forwarded against Nuoro and Sardinia prisons, the letter I received from Spain, a copy of my medical report which they altered. I complained about them but as usual, they put my case on hold even though it’s of extreme importance... this is Italy for you.
Brother, here’s some bad news:
They took ten brothers to a new jail in Rossano including Khaled Sarai. The guards and the commander in charge at that prison assaulted an Egyptian brother called Radi al-Ayyash, they punched and hit him with sticks, left him in confinement for six days without any cloth or cover, not even a blanket or bed. They didn’t give him any medicine nor bring a doctor to see him after he was bleeding due to all the beating. On the seventh day they transferred him to Nuoro prison. The same thing happened to me last year.
When the brothers demanded their rights, the prison director threatened to beat them, humiliate them and put them in confinement. He deprived them from food and a place to relieve themselves for 3 days. Wallaahi, three days with no food.
So the brothers protested against this treatment and called it “the rebellion of excess” , they threw urine and feces all over that section of the prison, and every time it’s cleaned they do the same thing again. One of the brothers drank a litre of cleaning detergent; another brother drank laundry soap and another swallowed 25 tablets of medicine all at once, protesting against this ill, racist and cruel treatment by the director and commander. Currently, three of the brothers are in solitary confinement for 3 months only because they asked for their rights.
Brother, please deliver these events to the Muslims around the world.
Let the Muslims hear our cry coming deep from the heart.
O Ummah of Islaam, we are facing in Italy all kinds of oppression, torture and racism.
Where are the Muslims? Where are the free men? Where are the honourable men?
There is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad is his messenger, peace and blessings be upon him.
Wa kull ‘aam wa antum bikhayr in this Blessed Month of Ramadan.
Was-salaamu ‘alaykum warahamatullaahi wabarakaatuhu,
Your brother Rabeh Osman, The Egyptian (from the Madrid case) freed by Spain and convicted by Italy
