After we published the letter for people to send to their government, we got a lot of responses from people that said they sent it. We would like to thank everyone who took the time and effort to send out this letter. It has worked!
We got a response from the SP, a political party here in The Netherlands. They said that together with the PvdA and the PvdD, they sent out formal questions to the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs. Their questions are:
1. Are you familiar with the Clinton Young Foundation, that says that the American Clinton Young, who is going to be executed on October 26, 2017, has been wrongfully convicted for two murders and wrongfully sentenced to death?
2. Do you understand the Foundation’s concerns about this wrongful conviction and about the fact that a lot of things did not go the way they should during his trial?
3. Are you willing to contact the Governor of Texas to ask him to stay Clinton’s execution so that his case can be reviewed?
As you can see, question number three is very important. If the Minister of Foreign Affairs decides to call the Governor in Texas, we have reached our goal. The Minister now has three weeks to formally answer these questions. We will know more by July 27th.
Again, we would like to thank everyone that sent out letters. We would not have been able to achieve this if it wasn’t for your help!
