UPDATE ON BRUCE ROBINSON Dated 19th March 2007 We are delighted to announce Bruce has now been released from prison. He is safe and well and slowly but surely rebuilding his life. Bruce\'s freedom was due to the tireless efforts of the following people and organisations and a very big thank you goes out from Bruce and his family to them: Bruce\'s lawyer Greg Slyszyk, The Helsinki Foundation in Poland, Fair Trials Abroad in the UK Bill Chasey from The Foundation for Corporate Social Responsibility and many friends and collegues including the team and staff of Expomedia who have supported all of us throughout the past 12 months. Thank you to everyone of you who supported this petition, every vote counted. __________________________________________________ Bruce and his supporters are asking that you petition to have him released from prison on bail. On the 14th February 2006, Bruce Robinson was arrested and charged for unintentionally causing the collapse, on 28th January 2006, of an exhibition building that killed 65 people and injured more than 170. The basis for the arrest was that the building was 51% owned by Expocentres Eastern Europe Limited, the company Bruce Robinson was the Polish Managing Director for. Other shareholders include the City of Katowice and The Polish State Treasury. If found guilty, Bruce Robinson faces 8 years of incarceration in a Polish Prison. The building was only 6 years old, built with all the relevant permissions by the previous shareholders (City of Katowice and The Polish State Treasury). The investment by Expocentres Eastern Europe Limited was made in 2001; one year after the building was completed. Since Bruce

PLEASE REFER TO THE MAIN STORY FOR BRUCE\'S UPDATE. Bruce\'s family, friends and collegues all believe Bruce has been used as a scapegoat and been made the face of this disaster. Bruce was never involved in the construction of the building. If this was the reason for the collapse, why is he still being held We want the NZ Government to fight for Bruce\'s rights! \"Bruce should be granted bail at his next bail hearing on February 21st 2007. Bruce will remain in Poland to defend the charges against him and serve any sentence should the charges against him be substantiated. Currently he has been \'presumed guilty\' and incarcerated without a trial.\" The reason being that we are not asking for the public to judge him innocent without trial - we are simply saying that he shouldn\'t be in prison. He should be out on bail. If you have a genuine inquiry and need further information contact Bruce\'s lawyer directly: Greg Slyszyk /Attorney at law/ Slyszyk & Partners Law Office Al. Wyzwolenia 8/204, 00-570 Warszawa tel. +48 (22) 5841570 fax. +48 (22) 5841571 mobile 0 608 205 608 e-mail: gslyszyk@slyszyk.pl; Thanks for your support!
