..Dag na dag, beroofd van communicatie met de buitenwereld, in omstandigheden van brutale
bestraffing en wreedheid, leerden we met overtuiging zeggen, uit de grond van ons hart, van binnen uit naar buiten: ‘Ik sterf zoals ik geleefd heb..’.
..After their arrest, the Five were immediately placed in solitary confinement, isolated from all other inmates for the entire 17 months of pretrial custody. For the first five months they were housed in separate cells isolated from each other as well as the other inmates. After those five months, a motion was filed by the defense asserting that their need to work on their defense was being compromised by the isolation. Four were then moved into the same single cell, with one kept housed alone, but they remained in the Special Housing Unit in isolation cells for all 17 months before their case was first brought before a court..

The Five were sentenced to a total of four life sentences plus 77 years and were imprisoned in five separate maximum security prisons spread across the US without the possibility of communication with each other..”
