The International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group, Amnesty International, a representative from Jackman Nazami & Associates, legal council to the AlQazzaz family, and a family member will be holding a press conference.
The press conference was held at the Parliament Hill Charles Lynch Room on Tuesday April 12th, 2016 at 11:30 am.
Khaled Al Qazzaz, his Canadian born wife Sarah Attia and their four Canadian children remain arbitrarily prevented from leaving Egypt in violation of international law. The family has suffered for over 1000 days in an extremely difficult ordeal. The prevention of travel follows over 500 days of arbitrary solitary confinement detention of Khaled Al Qazzaz.
Over a thousand emails have been sent to members of Parliament since December 2015 encouraging the Canadian government to intervene at the highest levels of Egyptian government for their safe return to Canada.
With the deteriorating security situation in Egypt, human rights groups are calling on the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau in his capacity as the Prime Minister and Minister of Youth to do everything in his power to help end this ordeal and bring this family home.
