Dear Jerry message

Dear Jerry,

A while ago I wrote you about things you made happen in Oakland, and Ex’pression College for Digital Arts in Emeryville, where I happened to be the Founding CEO and where two of your pupils got scholarships.

However, the main reason was Jaitsen Singh, innocently jailed for 32 years, now ‘residing’ in CMF Vacaville.

If I am well informed, our Prime Minister Mark Rutte handed you last Sunday (1/31/16) a plea letter from his son Surender, who misses his father since his 14th.

I’d like to urge you to read this letter, it’ll probably be the tipping point for you to decide to pardon Jaitsen Singh.

Thank you for paying attention to this urgent matter.

Best regards,

Peter Laanen
