Petition: Free Joseph Attar
We, the undersigned residents of Canada, draw the attention of the government of Canada to the following:
Whereas, Joseph Attar, a former refugee and Canadian citizen has been unjustly imprisoned in Egypt for over 12 years.
Whereas, Joseph Attar describes sustained flagrant violations of human rights.
Whereas, the Government of Canada has failed to take the plight of Mr. Attar seriously, nor take the necessary action to secure his safe return to Canada.
Whereas, Joseph Attar has written to One Free World International asking for an appeal to the Prime Minister of Canada for intervention to secure his release from prison.
Therefore, your petitioners call on the Government of Canada to take immediate and sustained action to appeal to the Government of Egypt in all diplomatic interactions and take whatever steps necessary to secure his safe release from prison and return to Canada.
