Exclusive Interview with Rev. Jesse Jackson and Two Americans Released From African Prison
Rev. Jesse Jackson was on America's Newsroom this morning for an exclusive interview alongside two Americans whom he helped free from prison in the African nation of Gambia.
Tamsir Jasseh and Amadou Janneh were in prison for subversive crimes
against the Gambian government, and while they weren’t on death row, the president had announced that all inmates on death row were to be executed at any moment.
The two Americans were sentenced to 20 years, but based on mercy, the government agreed to let them go home on the condition that Rev. Jackson took them with him. Additionally, Jackson convinced the government that those on death row should go through a trial process which will decide whether or not they should be executed.
The pair arrived back in the United States less than 24 hours ago.
"(Being in prison) in a poor country like The Gambia isn't easy," said Janneh. "But you just have to be strong, and hope that one day, somehow, the Good Lord Almighty will come down and give you a hand out of there."
