- Dear Free Speech Supporter:
- The following is a report from Lady Michele Renouf, the
courageous British investigative journalist, lecturer, model and arts patron
who visited political prisoner Ernst Zundel last Thursday in Mannheim prison.
- We still need your support for the cause of one of the
world's most famous political prisoners.. The Zundel case continues in
Germany. Please send contributions to help Ernst Zundel's defence to
- CAFÉ, Box 332, Rexdale, ON.,
- M9W 5L3, Canada
- or e-mail us your VISA number and expiry date.

- I am glad to deliver the greetings sent to you from
Ernst Zundel whom I had the honour of visiting yesterday (Thursday 28th
July) in Mannheim Prison.
- He looked very well (due, he says, to an hour's walk
daily in the sunlit yard) though he regretted the seeming effect upon his
memory of an unhealthful withdrawal of his herbal medicines these past
three years as part of his punishing kidnap and incarceration. Still,
he was of good cheer, even high spirits - not least in the knowledge that
his dishonest accusers rate (and berate) his real history investigations
- When I arrived, he had just seen his new solicitor and
was pleased with the female intuition she brought to the understanding
of his position. We were not permitted to discuss his case. However, I
was able to confirm I had put Adrian Davies (David Irving's Appeals barrister)
in touch with Mr Reiger. This is in case Adrian can be of help (as he
has offered) once the Zundel Case reaches the Court of Human Rights in
- During the course of an hour's conversation, Mr Zundel
impressed on me that he considered himself, essentially, a hostage for
the closure of a U.S.A. based website. He is prepared to sit out the five
years of further imprisonment hanging over him rather than bargain away
its public right-to-know integrity. I am urging those investigative journalists
who ocasionally get lucky to cover Ernst's fight and plight. It is a matter
of defending open debate and practicing media democracy.
- A new policy allows him to send and to receive only two
letters per day in a five day week. Ernst asks for his friends understand
his recent limits.
- And finally, Mr Zundel expressly wished those who would
hurt him by casting unfounded doubts upon his wife's fund-raising integrity,
if they would kindly appreciate that he can vouch better than anyone for
just how straight, wholesome, without guile, deeply trustworthy, and due
great respect is loyal Ingrid Rimland.
- Yours sincerely,
Michele Lady Renouf
