Petition to the Minister of Foreign Affairs

Whereas:
  • Mr. Toufik Benhamiche, a Canadian citizen and resident of Mascouche, was convicted and sentenced to four years in prison for manslaughter;
  • It is alleged that conflict of interest and the bias of the Cuban justice system came into play in this case;
  • The Canadian government’s support is required to ensure that Mr. Benhamiche receives impartial, fair and equitable treatment.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Foreign Affairs to take the necessary steps to ensure that Mr. Benhamiche receives impartial, fair and equitable treatment;
return Mr. Benhamiche to Canada as soon as possible;
and provide all the necessary support to the family of Jennifer Ann Marie Innis, who died in this tragic accident.
