Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Oscar López Rivera transferred to medium security prison

Victory for NBHRN and Puerto Rican people:
Puerto Rican Political Prisoner Oscar López Rivera transferred to medium security prison

After 27 years in maximum and super-maximum security prisons, today, Wednesday, February 13, 2008, Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera was moved to a medium security prison. This is a result of his excellent record in prison, but it is also due to the tremendous vigilance and defense of his rights by the organizations involved in the campaign for his and Carlos Alberto Torres release. While he is still being singled out for special, more onerous treatment, including being required to report to prison staff every two hours, this is the first time in almost three decades that he is in a medium security prison. Buoyed by the warm send-off from his fellow prisoners at the USP (maximum), and by the warm welcome from those at the FCI (medium), he will adjust to his new surroundings. The National Boricua Human Rights Network celebrates his transfer as a victory and urges all to write to Oscar. More news about the transfer to follow.

His new postal mailing address:
Oscar López Rivera
87651-024
FCI Terre Haute
P.O. Box 33
Terre Haute, IN 47808
