KOKESH RELEASED FROM SOLITARY CONFINEMENT
By: Brian Hagen
Liberty activist Adam Kokesh remains behind bars in a D.C. Jail, but has, after two months, been released from solitary confinement. Kokesh spokesman Jeffrey Phillips says the transfer happened this past weekend, with Kokesh moved to the general population of a lower level security wing of the jail.
Kokesh is now allowed to use the phone, a right he had been denied, but visitation remains questionable. Phillips says Kokesh’s mother, who lives in California but traveled to meet her son, was turned away by jail administration.
Kokesh’s team is working to see that change, sending a fax requesting visitation, but have so far received no response. Phone calls to the jail, requesting to speak with Kokesh, have been met with busy signals, a fax machine tone, and hangups.
Meanwhile, Phillips confirms that the Kokesh created “Adam vs the Man” internet program is on hiatus from its usual format, but corresponding content is still being generated.
