, Index number: AMR 51/028/1993

This document updates the information contained in AMR 51/23/93. Amnesty International has learned that Gary Graham, who is scheduled to be executed in Texas on 29 April 1993, has gone on a hunger-strike to protest about his death sentence. According to recent information issued by Gary Graham's lawyers, his conviction was based solely on the identification testimony of a single witness. There is also concern that racial bias may have played a part in the outcome of Gary Graham's case.
