AN AMERICAN NAMED JACOB OSTREICHER HAS BEEN ILLEGALLY IMPRISONED BY THE BOLIVIAN GOVERNMENT
IT’S TIME TO TAKE NOTICE AND DEMAND HIS FREEDOM
More than 500 People will Converge by the Bolivian Mission in New York City
A press conference will be held in front of the Bolivian Mission to the United Nations to rally support for Jacob Ostreicher, an innocent New York businessman who has now been confined for 11 months in one of Bolivia’s most notoriously dangerous prisons without being charged.
Bolivian authorities have spent the time investigating Ostreicher for money-laundering, after nearly 30 hearings, prosecutors have presented no evidence to back their allegations that the American did anything wrong. The United States Department of State has had no luck talking to the Bolivian government, and the United Nations Human Rights Commission is “monitoring” Jacob’s situation.
On Tuesday, May 8th, ABC News Nightline will air a segment about Jacob’s plight. In advance of this airing, Jacob’s family is holding a rally at the door of the Permanent Mission of Bolivia to the United Nations. 211 East 43rd Street at 11:00 AM on Thursday, May 3rd, 2012.
