Letter to The Honourable John Baird re the cases of Mohamed Fahmy and Khaled al-Qazzaz in Egypt

"Dear Minister Baird,

We are writing with an urgent request that you speak out publicly and forcefully with respect to the cases of two prisoners in Egypt with strong Canadian connections: Canadian citizen Mohamed Fahmy and Canadian permanent resident Khaled al-Qazzaz. Mr. Fahmy has been sentenced to a seven year prison sentence and Mr. al-Qazzaz has been held without charge or trial for close to one year.  More than 80,000 Amnesty International members across the country look to you to press Egyptian authorities immediately to address the serious human rights concerns in these two cases."
