later, a federal appeals court overturned Brady’s decision and ordered

Albert Woodfox was eventually released on 19 February 2016, after the

prosecution agreed to drop the push for a retrial and accept his plea of no

contest to lesser charges of burglary and manslaughter.

The cases of the Angola Three have gained increased interest over the

last few years. Since his release, Robert King Wilkerson has worked to

build international recognition for the Angola 3. He has spoken before

the parliaments of the Netherlands, France, Portugal, Indonesia, Brazil

and United Kingdom about the case, and about political prisoners in the

United States. King Wilkerson was received as a guest and dignitary by the

African National Congress in South Africa, and has spoken with Desmond

Tutu. Amnesty International has added them to their watch list of ‘political

prisoners’/’prisoners of conscience’.
