New flyer about Communication Management Units (CMUs)

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Daniel’s lawyers at Center for Constitutional Rights have released a new flyer about the Communication Management Units (CMU) that the Bureau of Prisons operates. These are the units Daniel was held in for most of his prison sentence and the subject of a lawsuit (Aref v Holder) brought by Daniel and former/current CMU prisoners.

You can read the text of the flyer here.
You can download a PDF of the two page flyer here.

A more substantial update on the case and how Daniel is doing on the outside is coming soon.
