Priest facing prison opposing torture faces another court hearing

Fr. Louie Vitale is ordered to appear in federal court on Friday, September 21, at 11:30 a.m. for a hearing on the conditions of his pretrial release. Supporters can meet in front of the Tucson federal courthouse, 405 W. Congress, at 11:00 a.m. to go into court together.The request to re-schedule the date for this hearing was denied by the court. It is expected that the magistrate will impose further restrictions on Fr. Vitale until the Oct. 17 trial for his Nov. '06 arrest along with Fr. Steve Kelly at Ft. Huachuca. Magistrate Estrada learned on August 13 that Fr. Vitale had received a trespass citation several days earlier at a Nagasaki Day protest at the Nevada nuclear weapons test site, after ordering the two priests at their April arraignment not to break the law.For more information, go to:
