    1) Amnesty works by collecting information. When there is proof that a person is a 'Prisoner of Conscience', then that person's case is handed over to a local group.

    Question: Amnesty gathers information
    a) to determine if someone is a Prisoner of Conscience
    b) for the 'Prisoner of Conscience'.
    Which one is correct? I would not use b.

    2) He excused for not phoning earlier. Is this sentence possible? No, it's not correct as it is. If you insert himself after "excused", it'll be fine.

    He apologized for not phoning me... <~~This is fine.
