Petition update

Christmas wishes from the families

Dec 24, 2016 — Last year the Men sent you all a video message thanking you for your support and wishing you a merry Christmas.

This year unfortunately they will be spending their second Christmas in Prison, and will be unable to thank you themselves or wish you all a beautifully Merry Christmas, and prosperous New Year.

We have had word back via a letter that all your cards and parcels are arriving in puzhal prison thick and fast, and i can't even begin to tell you how comforting that in itself is. To know that daily the men are opening your letters ad cards, reading all your well wishes and words of support brings joy to us all at this especially hard time.

We wanted to thank you ourselves with a little video message of what you all mean to us, and our beloved men.

What ever you do tomorrow, please treasure it, enjoy it and be thankful. Treasure your freedom and your family and your friends. Enjoy the food and drink we all take for granted each and every day and be thankful for everything and everyone you have in your life.

Tomorrow will be especially hard for many people. None of the families involved in this case wanted to spend their fourth Christmas separated from their brothers, husbands, fathers or sons, but that is something we've had grudgingly had to accept. So tomorrow for each and every one for all our men in Puzhal prison, and the many others who can't be with their loved ones this Christmas. We will raise a glass. Toast our men. Embrace our friends and family, and hope 2017 brings a much brighter future than the one we currently face.


Thank you all so much. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year. xx
