(en) USA: Former Political Prisoner Matt Lamont Arrested

Date Mon, 27 Feb 2006 16:00:50 +0100 (CET)

Former Anarchist political prisoner, Matt Lamont, was
arrested yesterday after detectives escorted him out
of his workplace. Only after repeated demands that he
be told why he was being held, one of the detectives
stated it was for a parole violation. Plain-clothes
police then searched Lamont's car and apartment, where
they seized political documents, letters from
prisoners, as well as, the hard drive to his computer.
During his interrogation, detectives alluded to Lamont
plotting to target the Big Bear Damn- an allegation
that is simply not true. Detectives also inquired
about the Southern California Anarchist Federation
(SCAF), a group Lamont has had some association with
since his release.
Matt?s wife, Jenny, has not been able to get any
information about the charges or where Matt is
currently being held. The last she has heard, Matt may
have been taken to Chino State Prison.
Matt and Jenny Lamont are in serious need of support,
legal and financial. Though the facts of the case have
yet to surface, we can assume Matt will need legal
aid. Since Matt is being detained, serious economic
strain is being placed on his wife. Matt?s arrest and
detainment will make it difficult for Jenny to pay
their bills.
Information is still limited and we will keep folks
updated. Until I get permission to release Jenny's
phone number and address, people can contact LA-ABCF
regarding Matt's case and donations. We ask that
people prepare to assist them with financial
contributions and moral support.
Matt Hart

Donations for the Lamonts can currently be sent to
