Justice Iacobucci released his supplemental report into the actions of Canadian officials in relation to Abdullah Almaki, Mauyyed Nureddin & Ahmad Abou-Elmaati
Here are reports on the issue from 7 media outlets [links here]
1) Toronto Star
3) Canadian Press
5) National Post
6) Toronto Sun
7) Globe & Mail
Not one mentions that Ahmad Abou-Elmaati has a brother; Amer el-Maati :
“Amer traveled to Peshawar where he began working for the NGO Health and Education Projects International, created by Ahmed Khadr.
“In 1998 he obtained a Canadian passport while living in Pakistan. Khadr’s son Abdurahman testified in Montreal in the summer of 2004 that el-Maati had given his Canadian passport to a man known as Idriss.”
These fundraising materials go into some presumably humanizing, heart-string-pulling detail about every member of Ahmad Abou-Elmaati’s immediate family.
Why not ask Amnesty International why they left out that little nugget in their efforts to make more money?
