I visited Mumia on Sunday, Sept. 6. As you know, after a series of hospitalizations in March and April 2015, Mumia has remained in the prison infirmary. During this time, most of his property has remained in his old cell.
According to Mumia, on Friday, Sept. 4, officers rushed him out of his regularly-scheduled medical bath to inform him that all the belongings in his cell had been packed up and placed in storage. The handling of prisoner property in the absence of a prisoner is a violation of prison procedures.
After signing the forms required when prisoner property is placed in storage, Mumia asked if he was about to be moved to a different facility, since the boxing up of a prisoner’s property usually precedes a transfer. An officer assured him that he would not be transferred, but this all seemed really strange to Mumia.
