[Ppnews] Update on Bashir Hameed

As of today, Feb. 5, 2007, Bashir is still on lockdown, pending a hearing
on the "political contraband" found in his cell, which includes some
pictures from the 35th Anniversary Reunion of the BPP and some writings by
the New Black Panther Party. Of course, all of this had already gone
through the prison mail system before Bashir received it.

Please keep up the calls and letters, and remember to stress that Bashir
needs his monthly checkups and bloodwork following his open heart surgery.
While the prison apparently does not have the time to provide Bashir with
needed medical care, they obviously DO have the time to harass him.

Greetings Friends

I received a call from a friend of Bashir Hameed early this a.m. 1/20/07.
He said that "last night (1/19/07) when Bashir was at prayer his cell was
turned out and his papers were confiscated and when he returned he was
locked down in his cell and notified that the guards had found and taken
"political contraband" from his cell."

This is the third time since Bashir has been in Comstock prison that the
prison administration ordered a raid on his cell and charged him with
having "Polical Contraband" -papers- in his cell.

We are asking that you call the prison and ask what is meant by "political
contraband" and if they have the time to raid his cell why don't they have
the time to give him his monthly checkup's and blood work since his open
heart surgery?
