Mr. Speaker, once again we have serious concerns about a Canadian national who is having difficulties with Iranian authorities.
I rise today to call on the government to pay particular attention to the case of Mehrnoushe Solouki, who is currently free on bail without a passport in Iran.
Ms. Solouki is a documentary filmmaker and a member of the Fédération professionnelle des journalistes du Québec.
We all remember the tragic events surrounding the unfortunate death of Zahra Kazemi and we have a duty to ensure that such a thing does not happen again.
Ms. Solouki has permanent resident status in Canada. I call on every elected member of this House to join me in sending a clear message to the Iranian authorities: all Canadians are concerned about the fate of Ms. Solouki and want her to return to us immediately, safe and sound.
