We call on Governor Wolf and Secretary Wetzel to promptly authorize the independent doctors Mr. Abu-Jamal has chosen to coordinate his diagnosis and treatment plan, and to involve the specialists needed to address his many medical challenges. Given the extensive evidence of Mr. Abu-Jamal’s innocence and that his very life is in danger while in the prison system, we call for his immediate release from prison.
