Actor/Activist Martin Sheen steps up to the plate to stop execution of Mohiuddin Din Ahmed.

By SOP newswire

Los Angeles, CA – June 13, 2007 – While the world is attuned to Paris Hilton's petty predicament, time is running out for Mohiuddin "Din" Ahmed, who is set to be deported by US Homeland Security to Bangladesh for immediate execution, as early as later this week, for a crime that he did not commit.

Actor/Activist Martin Sheen has released the following statement: "I support Amnesty International and the Conference of Catholic Bishops, on both sides of the border, in their efforts to help Din Ahmed find safe haven in Canada.

The death penalty is wrong and Din Ahmed received that death penalty during an, in absentia trial, which is doubly wrong. I urge the US State Department and the Dept. of Homeland Security to work with Canada in the hope of finding a humanitarian solution to this life and death problem." With the celebrity endorsement of Actor/Activist Martin Sheen, traffic at the website www.FreeDin.org has increased exponentially.

The website has been established to assist people in obtaining information about Din's predicament, so that they may contact their Senators and Congressmen/women, to voice their objections to Homeland Securities deportation of Din. 9th Circuit Judge U.S. District Court Judge Gary Feess, has already ruled that Homeland Security has deceived the United States Congress in Din's matter.

However, with Din's family in tears, Judge Gary Feess will once again rule the fate of Din, later this week, which may result in Din's immediate deportation to death.
