Jorge González Nieva is a 54-year-old taxi driver. He has been in prison for years without a final decision on his case. He sighs, “How can this be? What do I do? What do I do?” © Amnesty International Argentina / Demian Marchi / 2018DOWNLOAD A PDF HERE
In July 2006, a taxi driver named Jorge was going home after work. Suddenly police arrested him and beat him. They accused him of robbing a bank and of killing someone in the bank.
But Jorge was not involved in those crimes. The police had forced someone at the crime scene to say that Jorge had done it. There is recent evidence from the Innocence Project Foundation to prove that he is innocent.
In 2010, a court sentenced Jorge to 25 years in prison. His lawyer asked the Supreme Court to review it because he thought the sentence was not fair.
