Last October, following emergency 602s (grievances) and a short hunger strike for medical care, Zaharibu was moved to the prison hospital at Corcoran. He was being treated for his spine, for which he was sent to an outside hospital Mercy Hospital) to have an MRI scan. This scan showed that surgery may be necessary.
For almost 3 years Zaharibu was told that nothing is wrong with his back… And now the MRI scan shows a different story. There was supposed to be a follow-up appointment with the doctor at Mercy Hospital, within 10 days. The 10 days ended on October 19th without Zah having spoken to the doctor… Zah has also submitted a medical appeal requesting that he be taken out to the hospital, or provided with an explanation why he has not been taken to see the doctor again.
Please write to Michael (Zaharibu) while he is in hospital! He can do with some mail!
Thank you! We will keep you all updated.
