Q: Another Canadian, Hussein Celil, was arbitrarily detained, arrested, and sentenced to life. He is still in jail. Why is he not a top priority for you, and only the Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor?
Mr. Huseyincan Celil’s case remains important to the Government of Canada and continues to be raised at senior levels. We continue to call upon the Chinese government to give Canadian officials consular access in order to determine Mr. Celil’s well-being. To protect our efforts and the privacy of the individual concerned, we cannot release further details on this case.
