It's a damn shame. I haven't forgotten, and I really wish there was something we could do!

There's plenty you can do. You can contact the various human rights associations, Amnesty International, national and international media, politicians, the UN, and like-minded influential intellectuals.

The last time I tried making a fuss and contacting the media and human rights folks I was asked by their family and folks who said they were close to the matter to cease because they were in "delicate discussions". Well, obviously those "delicate discussions" bore no fruit. They're still in prison while the owner of the apartment complex, our local mayor's nephew, was released immediately thanks to the mayor's intervention on his behalf, and instead of having his apartment complex taken over by the judicial authorities, as is the normal protocol in such matters, it was also immediately released. The more I get involved the more I risk calling unwanted attention to myself and my loved ones from nasty people. Something I've risked enough, but there simply comes a time when I have to let someone else carry that torch. I've got enough on my plate.
