Petition Update

Sanal safe for now in Helsinki

Rationalist Association

Jun 18, 2012 — Sanal has just informed us that he has arrived safely in Helsinki. For the first time in several months, he says, he can "breathe freely". He will be able to rest and recharge his batteries, but he is by no means giving up his fight - and urges us to keep up the pressure on the Catholic Church to get the complaints withdrawn. He has filed for "anticipatory bail" with the High Court - a ruling expected early this week (week of 18/06/12). If this is granted then he will be able to return to India knowing he will not face time in jail. Then he can concentrate on refuting this unfounded and unconstitutional charge.
