Over 400 Interfaith Religious Leaders Sign Letter
Asking for Freedom of Pere Jean-Juste. 
As of mid-day September 28, 2005, the following
religious leaders of many faiths including Judaism,
Christianity, Islam and Buddhism joined in the call
for the release of Fr. Jean-Juste from prison in
Haiti.  These 400 plus leaders come from many local,
state, national and international religious and
faith-based social justice organizations.  Letters
containing these signatures have been delivered today
to the US State Department in Washington DC, the Prime
Minister of Haiti in Port au Prince and the US
Ambassador to Haiti in Port au Prince.These are the religious leaders who are calling for
the release of Fr. Gerard Jean-Juste who has been held
for over two months in prison in Haiti without
charges.  Amnesty International has designated Fr.
Jean-Juste as a Prisoner of Conscience and many other
human rights organizations have also campaigned for
his freedom.Thomas Gumbleton, Auxiliary Bishop, Detroit
