Message from Professor Peter Erlinder

[North-american lawyer who has taken up the defense of Chairman Gonzalo and taken part in several of the delegations of the International Emergency Committee to Defend the Life of Dr. Dr. Abimael Guzmán]

Dear colleagues,

I am very pleased to receive the information on the Conference concerning the case of Guzmán, programmed for September 27. I unfortunately have to inform you that I will be unable to participate at the conference. I have a long-standing engagement in Asia, and on this date I will be travelling to participate at the NOUS in Beijing, on September 26.

Please accept my best wishes for a prosperous conference, and please also allow me to participate in other, future events.

Yours sincerely,

Professor Peter Erlinder
