CSIS -Canadian Secret Intelligence Service Complicity in Torture: "PRESENTE !"
The Case of ABOUSFIAN ABDELRAZIK
Canadian Secret Service (CSIS) statement regarding his torture :"We judge it unlikely that, should Abdelrazik's detention in Sudan become public knowledge, there would be the same sort of outcry that surrounded Maher Arar's arrest and deportation from the USA. "

Ticket bought for Abdelrazik, flight leaves on 3 April, 2009 !
Over one hundred people across the country have joined together to buy a plane ticket home for Abousfian Abdelrazik, even though the Canadian government has made it a federal offence to directly or indirectly finance or collect money to support Mr. Abdelrazik.
The plane ticket strips away another excuse the government has used to prevent Abousfian Abdelrazik from returning home. In December, the government stated in a letter to Mr. Abdelrazik's lawyer that he must present a fully-paid-for plane ticket before Passport Canada would agree to issue an emergency passport. Mr. Abdelrazik's passport expired while he was in prison in Sudan.
The flight leaves Khartoum on 3 April. An emergency passport can take less than 24-hours to issue. The government has three weeks.
- Document sent from the government of Sudan to Canadian Embassy letting them know that they have nothing against Mr. Abdelrazik
"Thus, what have been arisen around the suspect was merely doubts on his general shape, beard, prayer's mark on his forhead [...] Based upon our investigations, we did not find any evidence that allow condemning him or punishing him."
