A Libyan brother, Khaled Gaith, who lives in Canada, is facing the possibility of being deported to Libya, please send this letter to the Canadian Minister of Citizenship and Immigration ... save your brother's life.
The Honorable Elinor Caplan
Minister of Citizenship and Immigration

Subject: In fear for Mr. Ghaith's life if he is deported to Libya
This is in reference to Mr. Khaled Ghaith's deportation case. As you may be aware, a negative decision has been reached in respect of the "risk assessment". At this stage we, as a community, feel that we should implore with you for a stay of all the procedures. The reason for such a request arises from the fact that we all know that Mr. Ghaith's deportation is unfair and entails prosecution, torture and certain death in libya.
On April 29, 2000, the British authorities reconsidered their decision to deport a Libyan man after they have learned that another Libyan whom they deported earlier on April 6, 2000 can not be located and his family is not aware of where he is since then.
We are all confident that you are as sympathetic as the rest of all of us about this human issue. We also know that you as a Canadian Citizen do firmly believe that all humans regardless of their nationality or belief have equal right to seek freedom in whatever lawful manner they may deem fit and appropriate. Therefore, we implore again with you for mercy in this matter and assistance in whatever manner available to you.
