This chapter discusses the efforts of the author and the family and friends of Tooy to find ways to appeal against his rape case knowing that Tooy would not survive seven years in prison. They sought the help of human rights lawyer Raphael Constant and found witnesses who could corroborate the key elements of Tooy's story. They later decided not to appeal the case and seek other ways of freeing Tooy for fear that he would be given a heavier sentence.
