Yasser Albaz’s life is in danger and he is calling for the Canadian government to save his life.
For some days now, Yasser has been experiencing symptoms of coronavirus.
There is no way for Yasser to protect himself from the virus. Not only is there no medical response, but cells are overcrowded, one washroom is shared, conditions are highly unsanitary, and physical distancing is impossible.
The Albaz family had warned the Canadian government of this risk and call on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to secure Yasser’s release and bring him home this week to be treated at a Canadian hospital.

The Albaz family welcomes the news that the Prime Minister raised the case of Yasser Albaz. This comes after multiple direct communications with President Sisi and Foreign Minister Shoukri by Canada’s Foreign Minister Champagne and Minister Freeland since he was arbitrarily detained without charges by Egyptian authorities on February 18, 2019.
Yasser has not been charged or informed of the accusations against him for 12 months and his detention is in violation of international law. No Canadian citizen should be subjected to such treatment.
