Mumia's case continues to be of interest to the public as many criminal cases, like his, are successfully appealed due to: evidence tampering, biased juries, inept legal representation, DNA testing proving innocence, and other factors. Mumia is the world's most reknown political prisoner. A large committed audience exists, passionately interested in Mumia's case, his writings and work from prison. Destined to become a classic of prison literature.
