Greetings Friends and Comrades. 8/13/2011
We need for folks to help get Political Prisoner, Maumin Khabir (aka Melvin Mayes) #09891-000 at USP Terre Haute, a medical transfer to the Federal Medical Facility at Butner, NC., or FMC at Rochester, MI, where his illness can be taken care 24/7 and not at the whim of a prison guard.
Maumin suffers from C.O.P.D. (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and severe emphysema; he is an asthmatic with acute respiratory failure. He also regularly experiences chronic back pain due to bone degeneration.
For the last 5 years, Maumin has requested a medical transfer as part of his annual review, and each year has been denied. This has been a extremely bad year for him health wise and he requested a medical transfer in May. As with previous years he has been given the run-around. When he checked in July, he was told by his case manager, Ms. Bates that “she wasn’t sure if she was going to put it in, maybe after her vacation.” When Maumin checked last week (August) nothing had been done.
Maumin has asked if we could help by having people call or fax
Mrs. Frederick’s, Ms Bates’ superior and push to have him transferred to a facility where he can get the treatment so desperately needed. Your phone call can help. Pease do it.
You can also write to Maumin at
