is still in medical danger. He is weak, in the infirmary, and still
needs a wheelchair to come out to visits. In a phone call on Monday his
voice was hesitant and lacked its usual vibrancy. Yesterday, the PA Department of Corrections notified Mumia’s Attorney Bret Grote (of the Abolitionist Law Center) that it would:
Not allow Mumia to be examined by his own doctor;
Not allow Mumia to be examined by a endocrinologist (diabetes specialist);
And they denied access for the doctor to communicate with prison medical staff to assist or direct Mumia’s care; and the Prison
has refused to provide for regular phone calls between Mumia and his
doctor. Currently, Mumia can only use the phone every other day for only
15 minutes, as the infirmary does not have phone access.
is being held in the very infirmary that caused his chronic conditions
of eczema and late-onset diabetes to become life-threatening.
The medical personnel on site were prevented from ordering tests when
he was ill in mid-March, and are under the same prison/corporate
restrictions today. One postive note, at this time Mumia is being
allowed to monitor his own blood sugar multiple times a day, and he is
receiving insulin. Since Mumia was hospitalized in ICU on March 30th with
life threatening complications from chronic conditions we have been
advocating for his treatment. We have to step up our efforts.
