Canada Concerned by Delay of Mohamed Fahmy Trial


OTTAWA, Canada, August 3, 2015/African Press Organization (APO)/ The Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State (Foreign Affairs and Consular), today released the following statement:

“We remain deeply concerned with Mr. Fahmy’s current situation and are disappointed at yet another delay in his trial. We hope to see no further delays occur.

“Canada calls on the Egyptian government to use all tools at its disposal to allow for the resolution of Mr. Fahmy’s case and allow for his immediate return to Canada. Canada continues to advocate for the same treatment of Mr. Fahmy as other foreign nationals have received.

“The Canadian Government including the Prime Minister and I have been raising this case with Egyptian officials at the highest level for some time, and will continue to do so. Officials are providing consular assistance to Mr. Fahmy to ensure his wellbeing.”
