Alleged Citizen Has Sudden Outbreak Of Canadian Values Wants Ottawa To Free Muslim Brotherhood Hubby In Egypt

A Canadian woman whose husband has been jailed in Cairo’s notorious Tora prison for more than nine months without charges is asking that Ottawa demand his release.

Sara Attia said her husband Khaled Al-Qazzaz “disappeared” on July 3, 2013 – the same day the Egyptian military ousted the country’s first democratically elected president Mohammed Morsi.

At the time, Al-Qazzaz served as secretary to the president for foreign relationsand he was arrested alongside other members of Morsi’s former government.

“Khaled loved Canada, he valued Canadian values and principles and took that back to Egypt,” she said.

Attia said Al-Qazzaz “was trying to implement democracy in Egypt” after the revolution.
