Suspected Syrian Terror Suspect Requests Review of His Case in Canada
Hassam Almrei, 31 has been detained for 4 years "without charge" and faces possible expulsion from Canada back to Syria. He is challenging Canada's Supreme Court and the Immigration Ministry for his October 2001 detention.
Almrei's attorneys believe their client was "unable to see" his accusations and authorities have "kept him detained for no reason."
The Canadian Immigration Ministry challenges this notion saying the October, 2001 detention is completely justified for security reasons.
Almrei has admitted to lying upon admittance to Canada about his past. However he does deny any links, past or present, to AQ. He states if he is returned to Syria he will be tortured and/or killed but does not publicly reveal specifically why.
