  2. Canadian Arab Federation Statement in support of Mahmoud Jaballah

    2002/08/23

    Canadian Arab Federation (CAF) joined the family of Mahmoud Jaballah, represented by his lawyer Rocco Galati, in a press conference in Toronto this morning. Mr. Jaballah, a native of Egypt and a refugee claimant in Canada, has been in detention and solitary confinement for over a year because of a CSIS-issued Security Certificate. This was the second such certificate to be issued against Mr. Jaballah by CSIS, based on the same allegations as the first one which had landed him in detention for seven months in 1999 and was later quashed by a federal court.
