Acabou: It's Finished

Front Cover
Covos Day, 2001 - Biography & Autobiography - 155 pages
Acabou started as a journal Tim Green kept for himself during his imprisonment in Mozambique. Scribbled with the stub of a pencil in a children's notebook, smuggled into the cell by inmates, the notes were intended as messages to his family should he not survive. This gripping story tells how Tim green was working as a commercial pilot, flying communications equipment into Mozambique. On the last run of a business trip, he was paid for his work in American dollars, which he tried to exchange for local currency so that he could pay for a meal. Mozambican authorities alleged that the currency was counterfeit and he was imprisoned without trial for trying to ruin the economy. His harrowing account includes a description of how he was marched in front of a firing squad and almost put to death, and that in the end it was the efforts of his wife and fellow inmates that saw him freed.
