I would have been honoured to be there in person, but Im unable to attend Roberts memorial because Im under house arrest with my husband Mohamed Harkat since June 21st, 2000 . Robert would never accept this kind of injustice in our country. Robert believed in justice, rights and freedom for everyone. He took a stand for us and many Canadians and for that I thank him .
I met Robert back when the issue of Security Certificates was new in the media. The activism blood was still fresh in my veins. I was happy and surprised to see him and Patricia OBeirne, who had decided to come down and show their support for a vigil I was having for my husband back in April of 2003. I was amazed that two supporters drove down to support us .
Now we need you to take a stand so my husband and the other Security Certificate detainees get a fair and open trial. We need to Stop Secret Trials in Canada once and for all. Secrecy is ruining lives and futures and has no place in a democratic country. Do it for justice
. do it in memory of Robert.
