Any chance of communication may be limited by time. So there is no time to question a person at length about their situation or no chance to question them at all if the communication is one-way. But what if the questions had already been asked before

If anxious families and supporters were able to get just one photograph to prove a person's existence, and to answer five simple questions regarding their basic well being, it would go a long way to helping them during this stressful time.

Hey I think I had the same thinking as you and expanded on it a bit with this:

I would think it would be useful for Amnesty to promote effective communication between supporters and detainees in order for them to make the most of the communication time they do get!

Kim commented on No Time For Questions, Just Give Me the Answers

Are you saying that a person who has been arrested is not going to try reach out to someone on the outside? This set of questions that I'm talking about a prisoner answering would not be to provide information about their innocence. I understand that there is little that they can do to prove that from inside prison. It would rather be to inform family or supporters of the person's health and the treatment they are experiencing under detention. I think this knowledge is very important for someone on the outside.
