John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs: Demand that Somaliland authorities release unlawfully arrested Canadian citizens Liiban and Jamal Noor
Jamal and Liiban Noor, 15 and 18 years of age, respectively, are two brothers from Mississauga who were arrested by Somaliland authorities while on vacation in the territory. Their grandmother's house was raided by authorities and the boys were accused of raping a politician's cousin. They were denied access to a lawyer and tortured by their interrogators before being sentenced to ten years of imprisonment.
Pressure from our government is our best hope of ensuring thei boys' safety. Jamal and Liiban are entitled to a fair trial and access to a lawyer, which they have been denied.
When you sign this petition, an automatic e-mail will be sent to John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
