      Held Without Charge Since June, 2000,
      Mohammad Mahjoub Applies for Bail

      Toronto - Mohammad Mahjoub, who has served the longest of any
      of the secret trial security certificate detainees (since June, 2000),
      heads to Federal Court on Monday, December 4 at 9:30 am in Toronto to
      seek release to his family. Held without charge or bail for more than
      six years, Mahjoub, a refugee from Egypt, has been held at Metro West
      Detention and now in Kingston's Millhaven Penitentiary on the basis of
      secret evidence neither he nor his lawyer can see or challenge.

      Over a dozen community members, as well as Members of
      Parliament Bill Siksay (New Democrat, BC) and Omar Alghabra (Liberal,
      Mississauga), have pledged cash and surety bond to secure Mr.
      Mahjoub's transfer to his family. Mahjoub, who is married with two
      young children, will testify at this week's hearing, as will his wife,
      Mona Elfouli (scheduled to testify Monday morning).

      Mahjoub's incarceration has included lengthy spells in solitary
      confinement and a series of hunger strikes protesting lack of medical
      treatment for conditions contracted in prison. One hunger strike
      lasted 79 days.

      The hearing is expected to last throughout the week.
