What: Sophie Harkat will talk about her husband, Moe Harkat, who was arrested under a security certificate 15 years ago, has spent years in jail despite never having been charged with a crime and now faces deportation to Algeria where he risks torture.
Lawyer Khalid Elgazzar will talk about the case of Canadian citizen Abousfian Abdelrazik and how he was interrogated by CSIS in Sudan and tortured by Sudanese intelligence officials, and about Canada’s responsibility in the torture of Afghan detainees.
Dr. Monia Mazigh will speak of her husband Maher Arar’s experience, the cases of Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad Elmaati and Muayyed Nureddin, all Canadian citizens who were tortured abroad because of the actions of Canadian officials, and the fact that, despite the government’s apologies and compensations, there have been new accounts of abuses surfacing, including the case of Abderrhamane Ghanem.
