Author: William Sampson
Publisher: McClelland & Stewart
In August 2003, Sampson was suddenly released in a prisoner exchange after an escalating series of bombings in Saudi Arabia made his innocence patently clear. But while a 2005 British inquest formally declared him innocent of the spurious Saudi charges, Sampson now finds himself battling the British government for the right to sue his Saudi tormentors.
Whether Sampson will prevail in his legal battle remains unclear. But one thing is certain. He has written a searing account of Saudi injustice and of Western governmental complicity. However trying it might be to read his story, Sampson’s cry for justice is one that must be heard.Michael Freund
