Condolences to Ms. Elaine Sharp and her family
We would like to extend our deep condolences to Ms. Elaine Whitfield Sharp over the death of her beloved husband, Dan Sharp who passed away on Feb 13, 2010. Elaine was one of the lawyers working on Aafia’s case and has been involved with the family since 2003. We also knew her husband well as a superb lawyer in his own right. He died after a prolonged struggle with cancer and we pray that Dan finds peace and that God gives Elaine and their family the patience to bear this loss and continue to live their lives as Dan would have wished.

Civil libertarians are fond of saying that a nation’s record on civil and human rights is determined by how it treats the worst of the worst. In this case, it’s determined by how it treats the cases those same activists didn’t give a damn about, except as a statistic to prove that (SO-CALLED) terrorists can be convicted 100% of the time by a foolproof judiciary.
