1. Prison's denial of Mumia's access to doctors of his choice

According to Noelle Hanrahan of http://www.prisonradio.org :

Mumia is still in medical danger. He is weak, in the infirmary, and still needs a wheelchair to come out to visits. In a phone call on Monday, his voice was hesitant and lacked its usual vibrancy. On Wednesday, the PA Department of Corrections notified Mumia’s attorney that it would:

  • Not allow Mumia to be examined by his own doctor;
  • Not allow Mumia to be examined by a endocrinologist (diabetes specialist);
  • And they denied access for the doctor to communicate with prison medical staff to assist or direct Mumia’s care; and the Prison has refused to provide for regular phone calls between Mumia and his doctor. Currently, Mumia can only use the phone every other day for only 15 minutes, as the infirmary does not have phone access.

Mumia is being held in the very infirmary that caused his chronic conditions of eczema and late-onset diabetes to become life-threatening. The medical personnel on site were prevented from ordering tests when he was ill in mid-March, and are under the same prison/corporate restrictions today. One positive note, at this time Mumia is being allowed to monitor his own blood sugar multiple times a day, and he is receiving insulin. Since Mumia was hospitalized in ICU on March 30th with life-threatening complications from chronic conditions, we have been advocating for his treatment. We have to step up our efforts.

Take Action Now!
