Dear Friends and Supporters of Sundiata Acoli:

This is a concise update of the status of Sundiata’s case.  Sundiata was 
again denied release on parole in November, 2016.  There are  procedural 
processes after denial.  There is the administrative appeal of the 
denial; the parole board sets a new hearing date called a Future 
Eligibility Term (FET) which has been  set at 15 years. Sundiata is 80 
years old at the time of the FET decision by the “board” and will be 95 
by next parole hearing date.  The appeal of that FET was upheld by the 
board in a decision dated June 21, 2017.

The next phase is an appeal of the denial of Sundiata’s parole to be 
heard in the New Jersey Appellate Court-the court that ordered 
Sundiata’s release in September 2014. That order was appealed to the New 
Jersey Supreme court after which followed, procedural steps, which are 
not necessary to detail here.

Now, Sundiata’s attorney must get transcripts and will have other 
expenses, including printing, and of course his legal fees, and will 
begin the process of preparing an appeal brief once he gets a briefing 
schedule. The process according to Sundiata’s  attorney can often drag 
on as the State will not file documents before the brink of the 
deadline; no interest in accelerating a potential release of Sundiata.

Funds are needed.  All of you know that Sundiata deeply appreciates the 
support, and commitment to getting him released.   Many of you have 
contributed each time there is a call for funds; please tell others 
about Sundiata and ask them to join you and  make a contribution. Much 
thanks in advance, on behalf of Sundiata.
