Watch List: Black Not Seeking Pardon?

The Cape Breton Post reports the following regarding Conrad Black:

Conrad Black says he’s not asking for a presidential pardon for his conviction on fraud and obstruction of justice charges and is “pursuing justice through the normal channels.”In an e-mail to The Canadian Press a week after a Chicago court heard his appeal, Black says he doesn’t want to predict an outcome.But he says he is optimistic that one way or another, there will be justice.The former media baron is serving a 6 1/2-year sentence in a Florida prison after being convicted on three counts of fraud and one count of obstruction of justice last year. Black says he hasn’t encountered any “difficulties” with anyone in prison — and denies speculation that he could seek a presidential pardon for his convictions before U.S. President George W. Bush leaves office.Black says he has had nothing to do “with any such initiative” and is pursuing justice through the normal channels.

Well, that should put an end to all speculation! PardonPower will keep his name on the Watch List!See full story here.
