Zerman Elias went back to prison after he had been granted nightly house arrest on 15th November.
Following an appeal by the prosecution, the court of appeal has decided (2 votes against and 1 in favour) for his new detention because he is still considered as ‘posing a danger to society’.
Zerman was arrested on 22nd September 2011 and accused of throwing a molotov at a gas armoured van of the repressive forces. He was locked up in the prison-enterprise Santiago 1. The press has tried to stir nationalist hatred against him because this comrade is of Bolivian nationality.
Zerman was sent back to prison on 24th November, this time in the maximum security unit (S.M.S-C.A.S), along with Gonzalo Zapata and Cristobal Franke, where the comrades of the ‘bomba case’ and the ‘security case’ had also been imprisoned.
Francisco Moreno is the only prisoner of the struggle in the streets who is still detained in Santiago 1, where he has been inflicted harassment by the jailers owing to his dignified indiscipline.
SSOLIDARITY WITH ALL THE PRISONERS OF THE STRUGGLE IN THE STREETS!
Zerman, Francisco, Cristobal and Gonzalo: FREE!
