Immediately pardon Jeffrey Sterling, imprisoned C.I.A. whistleblower‏


"
My husband was wrongfully sentenced to prison simply 
because he was in touch with a journalist. Please join 
me and the coalition of organizations led by Reporters 
Without Borders in my request to the Obama 
Administration to immediately pardon my 
husband." Holly Sterling
This is the petition of Holly Sterling, the wife of former 
C.I.A. officer Jeffrey Sterling, sentenced to 3.5 years in 
prison in May 2015. His crime? Simply being in touch with 
New York Times journalist James Risen.  

Since then, Holly has fought for her husband's innocence. 

While an appeal of his conviction is underway, RSF has 
launched a petition on change.org to ask President Barack
 Obama for Jeffrey's immediate and full pardon.
During Jeffrey’s trial, the Department of Justice was 
unable to present any direct evidence proving that he
 divulged classified information to Risen. They relied on 
circumstantial evidence — emails and telephone conversations 
— to try to make a case to a jury who would likely favor his conviction.
To help this cause, to reach a large number of signatures 
on the petition, to pressure President Obama to pardon Jeffrey, 
we need your help.
Sign the petition and help spread the message using 
#pardonforjeffrey on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
If we can help to obtain Jeffrey's pardon, it will be thanks to you.

Thank you for your support.

Christophe Deloire
General Secretary
