I was emailed a link to a blog called Free Ali Khan, which is about a guy apparently in Daejon Prison. He was apprently tried yesterday and convicted, and from the descriptions of the trial, it all sounds sketchy. Like, beyond sketchy: someone confessed to the murder and exonerated the guy, after the trial, but the case hasn’t been reopened, says someone named Audrey in a discussion over at Flickr.
Apparently, the theory is, if a mass of comments are collected on the site, there might be enough momentum to reopen the case. It sounds dubious to me, but commenting somewhere is a small thing to ask. And if someone else actually did confess, well… then it’s only right that at least the case gets a second look, right?
