United States of America: Not in the jury's name: the imminent execution of Abu-Ali Abdur' Rahman.

, Index number: AMR 51/075/2003

Abu-Ali Abdur'Rahman is facing death by lethal injection on 18 June 2003, unless his lawyers manage to obtain a stay of execution from the courts or clemency from the state governor. As several judges have indicated during the appeals process, Abu-Ali Abdur'Rahman was denied a fair trial, primarily because of his inadequate defence representation. He has been on Tennessee's death row for the past 16 years.
