Ahmed Zaoui update

Despite being granted refugee status last month by the Refugee Status Apeals Authority, Ahmed Zaoui is still in prison, his fate entirely at the whim of the Minister of Immigration. She doesn't seem to be in any hurry to make up its mind (what's a few more months of arbitrary imprisonment anyway?) - maybe she's hoping we'll all forget about it?

Amnesty International is still pushing for Zaoui to be released, and you can sign their online petition here.
