Alison Azer met with the Prime Minister in Ottawa today as she tries to put pressure on Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government to do more to help her get her four children back.
Today I heard from the Prime Minister directly that the accountability for the return of my kids lies with him. I am pleased that my children’s abduction file is now sitting directly on the Prime Minister’s desk,” Azer wrote in a statement.
“My children are counting on his quick action and leadership to be brought home to Canada. As their mother I will hold the Prime Minister to his word.”
Azer has been searching for the children since last August when her former husband failed to return home to Comox with them after a trip to Europe.
11-year-old Sharvahn; Rojevahn, 9; Dersim, 7; and Meitan, 3 were originally taken to northern Iraq but are now believed to be in Iran.
Saren Azer is the subject of an international arrest warrant for their abduction.
“It has been over nine months since my Canadian kids were abducted and I want nothing more than for them to be brought home safely. ” Alison Azer wrote in the same statement.
“I am disappointed by the federal government’s response over the past 9 months. The RCMP and Global Affairs can do more working with international partners to rescue my Canadian children.”
Azer also met with opposition and Conservative Party interim leader Rona Ambrose as well as NDP leader Thomas Mulcair.
“I would like to thank Tom Mulcair and Rona Ambrose for their continued support and thank the Prime Minister for providing the opportunity to meet. ” Azer wrote.
