Show Notes:


Most Canadians first heard about the case of Abousfian Abdelrazik last year when a federal court judge ordered the Canadian government to allow him to return home from six years of exile in the Sudan.

What most people don't know is that his story shows alarming parallels to that of Maher Arar. Nor do Canadians know that following his return to Canada, he is still unable to work, use a bank account or travel abroad.

Abousfian Abdelrazik and Mary Foster of Project Fly Home have just completed a cross-country tour raising awareness about his current predicament and the complicity of CSIS and the Canadian government in his arrest and torture in Sudan. They spoke November 23 in Vancouver.
