Highlighted Cases

Your support is greatly needed.
Our mission is clear: We assist Dutch nationals in foreign detention with legal aid. This is what we dedicate ourselves to. Every day. So that they can envision a future again. Without your financial support, we cannot achieve this. Will you help? Some cases we are currently working on:

Jaitsen Singh

Arrested in April 1984 in the United States based on the testimony of a single eyewitness, a conviction followed two years later: a sentence of 56 years. The verdict was reached under dubious circumstances. This led to a review in the 1990s. However, due to lack of resources and the death of the key witness, his sentence was never revised. Meanwhile, the 75-year-old Singh has been incarcerated for 36 years. And us? We continue to fight for his release. For example, PrisonLAW initiated crowdfunding in 2017 to fund specialized attorneys for him. Currently, we are working on his appeal and WOTS procedure, hoping for his prompt release.

Traffic accident abroad

An accident can often occur unexpectedly and have dramatic consequences. During their vacation, a couple is involved in a fatal traffic accident in Asia. They collide with a car while navigating a curve. The woman dies, and the scooter driver sustains serious injuries. Upon returning to the Netherlands, he will be sought after by the Asian country. In such cases, the country routinely prosecutes drivers, regardless of fault, even if no one presses charges against them. PrisonLAW regularly receives requests for assistance in such situations. From clients who are prohibited from leaving a country to those facing extradition threats. We engage local specialists to assist our clients, determining the most promising route for their return to the Netherlands.

Charly T.

Was arrested while on holiday in Spain after a date with two underage British girls. The Spanish justice department demands four years in prison and one year of supervision. Charly, who was underage at the time, had to spend 7 months in pre-trial detention. He has now been sentenced by the juvenile court in Alicante to 18 months of youth detention for sexual assault. PrisonLAW visited Charly in the youth prison and campaigned for the boy's release. His appeal is still pending.
