Pierre is ALIVE

Pierre is ALIVE. We have achieved a stay-in-execution for now. We have been granted a 3 week extension. They also volunteered information that Pierre is not in good health. After a break in communication for almost 72 hours we called them last night at 11pm and left a message that we need to meet. They called back and replied in the affirmative. Anas then made the long drive back from the undisclosed place of safety and met them in a car at 4am. The meeting was cordial and decent. We agreed to pursue further discussions in the days to come.
