Thank you!


I wish to express my immense gratitude to the huge support my family and I have received from our member societies and individuals from around the world. The time since my arrest has been the most difficult in my life, and without this support the pain would have been much greater. The journey ahead will be a long and difficult one and my family and I take strength from your support.
