Canadian permanent resident Khaled Al Qazzaz has been illegally detained in Cairo, Egypt, since last year’s political upheaval on July 3rd. He is currently held in solitary confinement at Tora prison, one of the country’s most notorious jails. His Canadian born wife Sarah Attia stayed in Egypt until March, but has come back to Canada hoping to get help from the government in her husband’s case. CKUT’s Amelie Phillipson spoke with Sarah to find out more about Khaled’s situation and how much help she is getting from Canada.
