TONIGHT Livestreamed event: Canada’s Complicity in Torture

If you are not in Ottawa, you can watch the talk LIVE or watch the video later on our Facebook page.
When: Monday, December 11, 2017 from 7:30 to 9:30PM

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.

ICLMG’s National Coordinator, Tim McSorley, will be talking about the new ministerial directives on torture-tainted information. He will also be moderating, and we will have a Q&A after the presentations. Le panel sera en anglais mais vous pourrez poser vos questions en français.
The event is “Pay What You Can” and open to everyone. It is a fundraiser for the ICLMG and we will be collecting donations in support of our work.
