Canada calls for safe return to Canada of Kavous Seyed-Emami’s widow, Maryam Mombeini
March 8, 2018 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada
The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today issued the following statement:
“The Government of Canada welcomes the safe return of Kavous Seyed-Emami’s sons back to Canada, despite very difficult circumstances.
“At the same time, we were outraged to learn that their mother, Maryam Mombeini, Mr. Seyed-Emami’s widow, was barred from leaving Iran for no apparent reason.
“We call on the Government of Iran to immediately give Maryam Mombeini, a Canadian citizen, the freedom to return home.
“We will continue to demand answers from the Government of Iran on the circumstances surrounding the detention and death of Mr. Seyed-Emami.”
