India: Act Now for Dr Binayak Sen
Dr Binayak Sen has been in prison since May 2007, accused of links with armed Maoist groups in Chhattisgarh state, India. He has been denied bail and his trial has been delayed repeatedly. Dr Sen is a human rights defender, providing health care for marginalized communities. In this case card Amnesty International expresses concern that Dr Sen has spent more than a year in detention on charges which appear to be politically motivated and urges that he receives a fair and prompt trial.
