'Having spent over a decade in solitary confinement as a political prisoner, I have come to appreciate with great intensity the subtle aspects of freedom - to read, to walk about and sleep - are actions that can easily be taken for granted ... This is why, when a sympathetic prison guard whispered to me with hushed excitement 'the UN just called for your release!', I felt a renewed sense of hope ... I learned that a short time later my international lawyer Jared Genser, the book's author, had just made public Opinion No. 22/2015. The Working Group found I was being held in violation of international law and it urged my immediate release ... the United Nations struck an irrecoverable blow to the former prime minister's efforts to try to justify my detention ... Jared Genser is a pioneer in the area of human rights law and a courageous and indefatigable representative of political prisoners around the world. This book represents his singular expertise in this area ...' Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, President of the People's Justice Party and Member of Parliament, and former Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia (1993-1998)
