Tune in for an hour of news, information and conversation around the issue of political prisoners and prisoners of war.
Tonight we will examine the case of Simón Trinidad (born July 30, 1950) is the alias of Juvenal Ovidio Ricardo Palmera Pineda. Trinidad is a high level member of The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia—People’s Army whom the United States government tried to frame on drug trafficking charges which failed but was able to convict him a kidnapping that he was not involved in that allegedly occurred in another country.
“for the past seven years, he has been a resident of the U.S. Penitentiary Administrative Maximum, better known as ADX. In the highest-security prison in North America, Trinidad is serving a sixty-year sentence for “conspiracy to commit hostage-taking,” based on a kidnapping that occurred on another continent — and without, his attorneys insist, any direct involvement on his part.” – ALAN PRENDERGAST
