This petition calls for the immediate release of Professor Tariq Ramadan and affirms his right to dignity and due process. Tariq Ramadan has not been convicted of a single crime and the French prosecution’s case rests on unsubstantiated claims and flimsy evidence.
Respected Oxford University Professor and public intellectual Tariq Ramadan is in a French jail awaiting trial. Dr. Ramadan has become dangerously ill for lack of proper medical care; he suffers from complications related to a pre-existing condition of multiple sclerosis. In a few days, the court will rule on whether his health allows for continued detention.
We have learned that Dr. Ramadan has been moved from the specialized chronic pain unit to the general medicine unit. We know how much his health has deteriorated and are very concerned about his conditions of detention.
We are very worried and we ask you to join us in calling to demand Tariq Ramadan’s fundamental rights
