USA: Thomas Arthur, to be executed May 25 - 30 years on death row - URGENT ACTION

USA:  May 5, 2017
Urgent Action: Execution Re-Set After 30 Years On Death Row (USA: UA 103.17)

Thomas Arthur, aged 75, is due to be executed in Alabama on 25 May. This is his eighth execution date since 2001, three times coming within a day of being killed. He maintains his innocence. This would be the first execution under the current Alabama governor.

Please call upon the governor to stop his execution.  

No physical evidence links Thomas Arthur to the crime and there is concern that the state has blocked advanced DNA testing in this case.
