Abdelrazik's troubles will likely continue in Canada as he continues to be on a UN terror list, which bars him from working or receiving financial assistance.So after the Cons made nonsensical excuses to keep Abdelrazik stranded, would it surprise anybody if they try to keep him from either living normally or speaking out about his ordeal by labeling any move toward those ends as prohibited assistance?
"The persecution and the injustice here are going to continue," said Attaran.
While Maher Arar received millions in compensation from the Canadian government for being unjustly labelled as a terror threat, Abdelrazik has yet to indicate he will seek damages from Ottawa, said Attaran.
In fact, the government may seek compensation from Abdelrazik for the food and medicine he consumed during his stay at the Canadian Embassy in Sudan, said Attaran.
