Fwd:Sonam has been released on parole
We have just received good news than Ani Sonam has been released on
We are waiting to get more details. Sonam's case was the subject of a
January 27 Washington Post article that was picked up for syndication
many papers. Grace Spring has been a power house on her behalf and
all the credit for bringing Sonam's plight to a national audience.
Sonam is a nun who fled Tibet through Nepal and, with false
her way to the United States where she was detained and jailed in a
outside of Richmond, Virginia. Based on the merits of her case, a
immigration judge granted her asylum, but a lawyer for the Department
Homeland Security appealed the decision.
The final disposition of her case is pending, but lots of public and
congressional interest has been a tremendous help getting to this
We'll post more details as they become available.
