Alhumdulilah! Allah is the Greatest!
Special Greetings to Supporters:
We reported that on Monday, October 6, 2014, Imam Jamil had been moved to Canaan USP, in Waymart, PA. We can report today, October 8, 2014, that he is in general population. Our voices were heard that he should not be placed again in solitary confinement--a custody placement that never was warranted by the Bureau of Prisons. We thank you again for joining us in the campaign that made this possible.
We will continue to monitor Imam Jamil's health conditions, and to work for his freedom to bring him home. We certainly will keep everyone informed.

Update: October 7, 2014
Imam Jamil has been transferred to: Canaan USP,
Address: 3057 Easton Turnpike, Waymart, PA 18472
Date: September 15, 2014
For two months, Imam Jamil Al-Amin has undergone tests at the Butner FMC as a result of our successful
campaign to have him transferred out of the Florence ADX to the federal medical center. The campaign was
necessary to bring attention to his failing medical health that the Florence ADX continued to ignore. . For those
who joined us in advocating on behalf of Imam Jamil, and to those who have sent letters and cards to him, we
continue to extend our appreciation.
We are able to report that Imam Jamil has smoldering myeloma, which is an inactive form of multiple myeloma.
Individuals with smoldering myeloma generally are monitored without receiving treatment, although there are
studies that indicate early intervention with medication could prevent the progression to active multiple myeloma.
The physicians at Butner FMC have not recommended that Imam Jamil receive any medication for his
smoldering myeloma. They agree that he should be monitored and tested every two to three months to
determine if his condition has progressed; then and only then would he receive aggressive treatment if the test
results reveal he has active multiple myeloma.
Although Imam Jamil has other medical conditions, which we feel have not been addressed adequately at the
Butner FMC, he is “awaiting transfer.” In this regard, we plan to do the following and ask you again to join us in
raising our collective voices to prevent another injustice:
• continue to oppose Jamil Al-Amin’s return to the Florence ADX, and challenge any FBOP’s decision to
house him in another federal facility under solitary confinement conditions in his chronic medical state;
• continue to call for Jamil Al-Amin to be held, pending his appeals, in a state or federal Georgia prison to
have access to his team of attorneys; and
• continue to urge close monitoring and exploration of treatment for Jamil Al- Amin’s medical conditions.
