To All Friends and Supporters of J4NB
Well, here we are at the end of 2005, you will all know that Nicks appeal
did not turn out as we expected and Nick is now serving time in Fuchu
prison. I will not make a statement about my feelings about Nick's trial
and appeal as I know you are all well aware of my thoughts and opinions!!!
Together with Nicks support group we will be working towards getting Nick
transfered back to the UK as soon as possible.
J4NB still has the continued support of Fair Trials Abroad, The Baroness
Sarah Ludford MEP, Norman Lamb MP and other MP's, Kay Danes and the FPSS,
together with many hundreds of supporters all around the world. Support
for Nick still grows daily which is amazing really.
Nick and I have been so fortunate to have a world-beating support group in
Japan who are still 100% behind Nick, we will never be able to thank these
people enough - they have looked after Nick like he was one of their own
family, their knowledge, love and kindness has been amazing. We have also
been so lucky in having a person with super technical knowledge that has
keep the website up and running, this website has been praised by
thousands for it help and support not only to Nick, but to many others, on
behalf of Nick and from myself we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
We also need to thank everyone who has helped raise funds and to those who
have sent donations. With special thanks to Kath in NZ and her friends in
Australia. I also need to thank the many people in and around the area
that I live in in the UK their kindness and support as been wonderful -
many donations came in anonymously and we thank all of you.
Nick and I now have so many new friends and in particular, Nick as many
friends from different Church bodies around the UK, they have made
donations and written to him - so special thanks to you all.
Thanks to all those of you who have sent such wonderful letters full of
interesting information and of course Nick's beloved sport items, this has
all helped to keep Nicks spirits high. I know you will continue to write
to Nick in 2006.
I think at this time of year we must all spare a thought for all those
families with relatives in prisons around the world, I know how hard it is
for you all and you will all be in my thoughts.
I hope everyone will light a candle Christmas Day and New Years Eve for
all of these people.
Finally, can I take this opportunity from myself and Nick to wish you all
a wonderful Christmas and New Year, we look forward to your continued
support and friendship in 2006.
with fondest thoughts and warmest wishes
Iris Baker (on Behalf of Nick)
