Mia Farrow Offers Her Freedom in Exchange for Darfur Rebel


American actress and UNICEF ambassador Mia Farrow offered her freedom in exchange for a Sudanese Liberation Army rebel in Darfur. Her appeal came hours before 8 rebel factions asked for final talks with The Sudan's government.

Suleiman Jamous (62), a Sudanese Liberation Army (SLA) coordinator, has been restricted at a UN peacekeeping base in Kadugli near Darfur for over 13 months and could be arrested if he leaves the base, even for an urgent stomach biopsy.

In her letter to the Sudanese president, Ms. Farrow offered to replace him because his long absence was an “impediment” to peace, referring to the “crucial role” he played by encouraging SLA negotiations and seeking reconciliation.

"I am therefore offering to take Mr Jamous's place, to exchange my freedom for his in the knowledge of his importance to the civilians of Darfur and in the conviction that he will apply his energies toward creating the just and lasting peace."

  In the Emperors name  
Just how conceited are these people.

No one cares who the **** you are in Sudan.

Seriously, no one cares who you are, anywhere.

  Oh yes  
I'm sure they will want to exchange one important and valuable 'guest' for someone who doesn't matter two hoots in the least.

  I don't think it is about them accepting  
or if she even means it.
It is more of her using her influence to shame them/ pressure them/ make them feel how important the guy is and that might make them give him a second chance.
Imagine if Angelina Jolie or George Clooney said the same thing, the whole world would have reacted.

Hopefully in the same fashion I did.

I hope they accept her offer and find her guilty in his place.
