ILWU Local 10 Demands Full Disclosure of Prosecution Files

International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 10 has passed a resolution calling for full disclosure of all the police and prosecutorial files in Mumia’s case. A link to the resolution, and an accompanying letter to Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, is below:

ILWU Local 10 Letter for Mumia

The files are necessary in order to determine the involvement of then-Philadelphia DA, and later Pennsylvania Supreme Court Chief Justice, Ron Castille’s involvement in calling for the death penalty for Mumia. The US Supreme Court recently ruled that a judge cannot preside over appeals by a prisoner for whom he was  personally involved in seeking the death penalty, and the files, which the Philadelphia DA refuses to provide, undoubtedly contain documents showing Castille’s personal involvement.
