Archbishop Desmond Tutu has endorsed the nomination of Palestinian political prisoner, MP Marwan Barghouthi, for the Nobel Peace Prize.
In the nomination letter sent by the Archbishop Emeritus to the Norwegian Nobel Committee he said, “I decided to support this Campaign alongside seven other Nobel Peace Prize laureates as a reflection of our belief that freedom was the only path to peace… I hope the Nobel Committee will take a bold decision bringing us closer to the day this holy land, charged with unique symbolic value, can stop being a living testimony of injustice and impunity, occupation and apartheid, and can finally be a beacon of freedom, hope and peace.”
