Ahmed Zaoui Writes Of His 100 Days On Bail

Scoop Image: Ahmed Zaoui:
MArch 22 2005, Auckland NZ. [1] Sallam Mullaikum, Kia Ora, Thank you for coming this evening. This is the first time I have been able to meet with all of you, my friends and supporters whom I have come to know since coming to New Zealand. It is hard to believe that it has been 100 days. The first days of coming out of prison will always remain in my memory. It is almost indescribable how I felt at this time. After so long, I could feel the air on my face and see your beautiful country. See... Ahmed Zaoui: Prepared Celebratory Gathering Speech [2] ALSO:

    Marjorie Cohn On Hotel Rwanda
