Deadline for Submission of Report of the Iacobucci Internal Inquiry Extended until October 20, 2008



    OTTAWA, Aug. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Internal Inquiry into the Actions of
Canadian Officials in Relation to Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad Abou-Elmaati and
Muayyed Nureddin, announced today that the deadline for submitting its report
has been extended until Monday, October 20, 2008.
    The Inquiry's Terms of Reference call for the submission of both a
confidential report and a separate report that is suitable for disclosure to
the public simultaneously in both official languages to the Governor in
Council. The Terms of Reference provided for the submission of these reports
on or before September 2, 2008. In order to allow adequate time for the
completion and translation of the reports, the deadline for submission has now
been extended until October 20, 2008.

    Established under Part I of the Inquiries Act by the Minister of Public
Safety, the Commissioner's mandate is to determine whether the detention of
these three individuals in Syria or Egypt resulted from actions of Canadian
officials, particularly in relation to the sharing of information with foreign
countries; those actions or the actions of Canadian consular officials were
deficient in these cases and whether any mistreatment of these three
individuals in Syria or Egypt resulted from deficiencies in the actions of
Canadian officials.
