Helping Political Prisoners Overseas

Helping Political Prisoners Overseas


This site has been created to provide comprehensive information and advice for families with loved ones imprisoned overseas or at home.

We aim to provide a 24 hour lifeline of information online. What is not currently on the site, we will research for you. Please let us know what you need at admin@prisonersoverseas.com.

We also aim to raise awareness for political and religious prisoners and the organisations that support them, and the many other organisations who tirelessly campaign for human rights.

We are also keen for people to share their experiences and submit information and research that may help families and prisoners. The hours and days after arrest can be crucial for the prisoner.

We hope to alleviate some of the stress families endure, by quick and easily accessible information online. The stress and trauma often felt by families with loved ones imprisoned overseas is often intensified by the distance and isolation this causes.

If you are a family member of a loved one imprisoned overseas or at home and would like to be put in touch with other families, please contact us at admin@prisonersoverseas.com.
