OTTAWA, April 27, /CNW/ - Canadian citizen Sarah Attia, whose husband Khaled Al-Qazzaz has been falsely imprisoned in Egypt, continues to raise awareness about his inadequate care and deteriorating health. Sarah Attia is urging the Canadian Government to do more to help bring justice for her husband and four Canadian children. Khaled is a Canadian permanent resident, and has been held without charge or trial for nine months.
Khaled and Sarah met as graduate students at the University of Toronto. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch characterize Khaled's detainment as "enforced disappearance" under international law, recognizing it as a breach of human rights.
The press conference will be held at the Charles-Lynch Press Conference Room in Centre Block on Parliament Hill, on Tuesday April 29 at 10.30 am.
