“My experience … in the (Maher) Arar file, for example, is when the prime minister intervened, Arar was finally freed,” said Waldman, referring to the Ottawa engineer arrested in New York in 2002 and deported to Syria, where he was jailed and tortured. “There is certainly a precedent for that type of intervention and I think this is a case that deserves it — an innocent Canadian languishing in jail in a country where people don’t get due process.”
