1. Summary

Imam Jamil has recently, and for unknown reasons, been placed in a disciplinary and solitary confinement facility known as ýthe holeţ. The cell has no bed, no control over the lights, and no shower. He was also strip-searched and his QurÝan and other belongings were seized. Supporters are urged to contact the ADMAX warden to ask why Al-Amin has been placed in the hole, and request that he be returned to his normal prison conditions.


2. Background

Imam Jamil Al-Amin has recently been placed in ýthe holeţ; a disciplinary and solitary confinement facility, also referred to as Special Housing Unit (SHU), in which inmates face even further restrictions. Imam Jamil had already been suffering from continuous 23-hour solitary confinement, simply by virtue of being housed at USP Florence ADMAX, which has also been dubbed the ýGuantanamo Bay of the mainlandţ and ýa clean version of hellţ. IHRC does not know the reason behind this presumed disciplinary action which has placed him in a cell having no bed, no control over the lights, and no shower. Aside from being strip-searched, his QurÝan and all other personal belongings have been seized.

For further information, please visit the Imam Jamil IHRC campaign page (http://www.ihrc.org.uk/show.php?id=3063) which contains a downloadable report as well as a recent open letter to President Obama regarding the widespread use of 23-hour solitary confinement in US prisons, mentioning specifically the case of Imam Jamil (http://www.ihrc.org.uk/show.php?id=3919).

IHRC asks supporters to contact Warden Ron Wiley, via fax, email, post or telephone to ask why Al-Amin has been placed in the hole, and request that he be returned to his normal prison conditions.
