Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Asks President Trump to Free Simon Trinidad
Prominent Argentinian Nobel Peace Prize laureate Adolfo Perez Esquivel and 43 other human rights activists from 18 countries have written to President Donald Trump asking him to free Simon Trinidad.
Simon Trinidad, a Colombian citizen and a peace negotiator for the FARC, has been jailed for 17 years at the supermax prison in Florence, Colorado where he is unable to receive visitors or mail. He celebrated his 70th birthday this past July.
The letter asks Trump to pardon or commute Trinidad’s 60-year sentence stating that it took four trials and three hung juries to convict him. The letter goes on to say, “Freeing Trinidad and allowing him to return to Colombia, would advance the peace process.”
The letter finishes by saying that releasing Trinidad “…would be a real gesture of peace…” which “Most all the people of Latin America would applaud.”
