A B.C. mother says the man accused of abducting her four children was detained by authorities in Iran, but then let out on bail.
Alison Azer says her ex-husband, Saren Mahmudi-Azer, was detained June 12 in the Iranian province of West Azerbaijan and later released with restrictions imposed on his movements.
Azer says her four children, ranging in age from four to 11, were taken to Iran through Iraq last August following a lengthy and unsuccessful court battle to prevent her ex from travelling with them.
Today, Azer pleaded with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to call his Iranian counterpart to seek the children’s return to Canada.
Early last month, Mounties on Vancouver Island said the children’s father contacted investigators and assured them the kids were safe.
But Azer says she believes her kids are in danger because of their father’s connections with an Iranian separatist group.
