The government finally backs down. The shameful forced exile of an innocent Canadian citizen is over. News Staff
The Tory government will comply with a judge's order to bring Abousfian Abdelrazik back to Canada.
Justice Minister Rob Nicholson made the announcement in Parliament on Thursday.
Earlier this month, Federal Court Justice Russel Zinn ruled that Abdelrazik's rights have been violated and Ottawa must bring him home within 30 days.
However, there had been speculation that Ottawa would appeal that ruling.
Abdelrazik, of Montreal, has been stuck in Khartoum since 2003 when he returned to his native country.
UPDATE: Was the government of Stephen Harper acting on orders from the Americans to keep Abousfian Abdelrazik in limbo?
