#Roommates, in a shocking turn of events after more than five decades in prison, the two men previously convicted of the death of iconic civil rights icon Malcolm X are only hours away from their release. It has just been announced that the two men jailed for alleged involvement in the 1965 murder of Malcolm X will be officially exonerated on November 18NS.
In 1966, Muhammad A. Aziz and Khalil were Islam both condemned at the murder of Malcolm X in 1965, despite endless doubts that they actually had something to do with his murder – and now 55 years later they will finally be free. @NYTimes reports Aziz and Islam are due to be exonerated this week, meaning their murder convictions will be formally overturned, highlighting the massive mistakes committed in the case of one of the most influential black leaders in American history. A 22-month investigation led by the Manhattan Attorney’s Office and attorneys for Aziz and Islam found that prosecutors, the FBI, and the NYPD had all withheld important evidence in the case that would likely have led to the men It was originally used in court.
In a recent interview about the discharge, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. officially apologized to Aziz and Islam, stating that not only did the court fail them and their families, but that they too cannot fix what has happened, “We can confirm the error and the severity of the error. This points to the truth that law enforcement has often failed to live up to its responsibilities throughout history. These men did not get the justice they deserved. “
Last year Netflix released the documentary series “Who Killed Malcolm X?” That raised enough new questions about the case that District Attorney Vance announced shortly after his release that he intended to review Aziz and Islam’s criminal records.
Malcolm X was murdered on February 21, 1965 when three men opened fire during his speech in the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, New York.
