USA (Tennessee): Further information on Death penalty / Legal concern - Philip Ray Workman

, Index number: AMR 51/034/2001

Amnesty International is shocked at the refusal of the state and federal courts to grant a hearing into the evidence, which severely undermines confidence in the original verdict.
