Despite forty years in solitary confinement which can only be understood as torture, he always maintained his innocence.
The request for her compassionate release is bogged down in the hands of Bureau of Prisons Director Samuels. The mechanisms are in place for her immediate release to the care of her family, and delayed only by the cruelty of a system that used a lawyer for the dispossessed as a propaganda victim in its 'war on terror.
Indications that the medical condition of political prisoners is used as a political control are available in the prison histories of Tom Manning who was hurt in custody, another of the Ohio 7Richard Williams who died of a heart attack, Leonard Peltier with a broken jaw, among others. A code of silence covers the gray area where appropriate medical concern is denied.
The silence is partly because the prisoner remains at the mercy of the prison system. Like solitary confinement, withholding of necessary medical care can become an extrajudicial punishment. Conditions which cause illness are also a concern. In an unpopular example, Jack Ruby awaiting trial for the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald, developed a fast acting cancer which silenced him before he reached court.

Mohamed Harkat was one of five Muslims in Canada arrested on a Security Certificate mechanism inwhich detains without explanation, imprisons without charges, and doesn't let go, claiming 'national security.
Harkat's lawyers are pressing the Supreme Court to find the Security Certificate process unconstitutional. The Court previously found Security Certificates illegal as applied, so the Harper government modified certain conditions to include 'special advocates' who would have some access to classified information though they can't share this knowledge with defense attorneys.
