Benamar Benatta entered Canada seeking political asylum on September 5, 2001. Five days later he was handcuffed, placed in the back of a car, driven to the border and handed over to United States authorities.

Benatta was placed in a U.S. detention centre where he was beaten and tortured daily. But in spite of being cleared of any involvement in terrorist activity in November 2001, he wasn�t released until September 2006.

Benatta and his supporters want to know the extent of Canada�s involvement in all of this and why this country handed him over to the Americans. And she�s still hopeful that the government will order a public review without the need for legal proceedings.
