I just saw in the Ami of April 18 the story of Yanky Ostreicher who is imprisoned without charge in a notorious jail in Bolivia. He is in a matzav of sakanos nefashos mamesh!
His name for davening was not included in the article. Would anyone be able to provide it? Thank you. And what else can we do to try to help him?May 1, 2012 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #875704cherrybimParticipant
What did he allegedly do?May 1, 2012 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #875705batsevenParticipant
cherrybim- nothing. they havnt even looked in to the “allegations” made against him yet…
Shticky Guy, this week in the Ami they posted a list of what we can do for him and senate memebers #s 2 call… you can look it up there…
However, the most helpful thing we can do for him is 2 DAVEN DAVEN,DAVEN!!! Keep him in your tefillos always….
His Tehillim name is: Yaakov Yehuda ben Shaindel.
May Hashem grant him a yeshuah bikorov…May 1, 2012 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #875706
He invested in a rice fields venture with a group of swiss partners, one of whom has a brother involved in drugs so the Bolivian authorities think the capital used to purchase the real estate comes from dubious origin hence his shock arrest. However he has never been charged with any crime and the jail there is run by a mafia of violent and dangerous prisoners who are given completely free rein by the prison guards. A terrible story.May 7, 2012 1:47 pm at 1:47 pm #875707
batseven thanks for giving his name. Yes its yakov yehuda ben shaindel.
PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO WRITE A LETTER ASKING FOR HIS RELEASE!
Senator’s email addresses given by Ami for letters are:
Senator Charles Schumer
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand
The sample letter (please change slightly) is:
I am contacting you about the case of Mr Jacob Ostreicher who is presently being held in the Palmasola Prison in Bolivia. Mr Ostreicher, who is a US citizen and whose family lives in Brooklyn, New York, has been held in jail for many months based on accusations by the Bolivian government relating to investments he made there.
The government has failed to show that he has committed any crime or been involved in any wrongdoing, and he has not even been formally charged with any crime. The jail in which he is being held is a very dangerous one; its interior is controlled by the prisoners themselves, and Mr Ostreicher remains in very real danger while he is there, as has been reported by US media, including the Associated Press.
The US government continues to provide assistance to Bolivia. We need to demand that our citizens are taken care of and treated in a humane fashion, and that includes the speedy release of Mr Jacob Ostreicher.
