David Hicks freed from jail

Post by shammy on Sat Dec 29, 2007 2:53 pm

29th December,2007

David Hicks has been released from prison.

Wearing jeans and a green polo shirt, the 32-year-old walked from Adelaide's Yatala Prison at 8.17am (CDT) and was escorted to a waiting car, bypassing the waiting media pack that had been keeping a round-the-clock vigil.

A small crowd of mostly elderly supporters were outside the prison as Hicks left, many holding banners reading 'This could have been your son' and 'David Hicks is no threat'.

The supporters surrounded the car in which Terry Hicks and lawyer David McLeod left the prison, cheering as the car left the prison grounds.

Hicks glanced at waiting media as he was driven from the jail in a blue sedan, escorted by police.

His lawyer, David McLeod, later read a statement of Hicks's behalf.

In the statement read to the media by his lawyer, Hicks said he didn't want to risk breaking the gag order placed on him as he didn't want to risk going back to Guantanamo.

He also said he didn't feel that he could face the media at this point.
