Abdelrazik, Abousfian v. Minister of Foreign Affairs (Canada), et al.
Ottawa, ON

Al Qaeda

An Ottawa federal court judge ruled that the Canadian government violated Abousian Abdelrazik's constitutional rights by refusing to allow him to return to Canada and ordered the government to repatriate Abdelrazik. Abdelrazik , a dual Canadian-Sudanese citizen, was arrested while visiting his ailing mother in Sudan in 2003. In July 2006 Abdelrazik was designated by the US Treasury Department for his ties to al Qaeda.
