Sarah Attia moved to Toronto to offer her family security, after her husband – Khaled Al-Qazzaz – was imprisoned following the military takeover in Egypt almost a year ago. He vanished among many others close to the Morsy government.
Until recently, the international community has remained largely silent but a letter smuggled out of an Egyptian jail and published by the New York Times has enabled Al-Qazzaz to question the Egyptian military and the world.
Attia talked to Amanpour from Canada and told her that she is haunted by fears of what the article could mean for her husband.
"I've been waking up every day since this letter was published, really worrying what could happen to him next."
Though she now lives in fear, there came a point when Attia and her husband could no longer stay silent.
"We all reached a point where we said enough is enough - we can not sit down and do nothing anymore. Khaled has been behind bars in Egypt's worst prisons for almost a year now."
Sarah and Khaled have four young children. Amanpour asked what they think about why their father was imprisoned.
"They know that their father was doing a good thing," said Attia. "He used to tell them that I'm working on making Egypt a better place."
It is tragic how the promise of Arab Spring has been stolen by forces that are inimical to the spread of democracy in the region. The next surge for freedom will be even more powerful.
Morsi was a terrorist and got what he deserves and hopefully he and all his entourage will get the death penalty... The harm they did to Egypt and continue to do made them hated by ALL Egyptians and we all want the government to execute them...
You are absolutely right Toppolina and I, to this day, fail to understand why Christiane Amanpoor keeps defending that lot. What is in it for her?
Wow, I Love the confidence in throwing unproven allegation. Monkeys are blue oranges are black.
It has been over a year, and nothing that's coming from Egypt new government except what you would expect in an African Safari jungle!!
No respect for human rights, mass jailing, and bogus charges.
I am Egyptian and can only say you are brain washed, I do like Morsi and the MB. The terrorist is obviously a Sisi that killed thousands of Egyptians, among them are girls and kids, only to take control of our country and he will get what he deserves soon.
Morsi and his tribe are part of an international terrorist organization and the Egyptian citizen do not want them in Egypt, any country supporting this group they are welcome tho have them all , but do not come back and complain about their actions. This are part of the group called ISIS and you can see what they did in Iraq and want to do the same to all the neighboring country
Do not believe any of those terrorist they want to destroy the image of Egypt.
I feel your Pain Sister and on This Holly Month We'll Keep praying For your Husband your family And the Thousand's In prison. Stay Strong! and Thank You CNN
Sisi = Boko Haram = rule by the gun = Terorrist
You are mistaken. In reality, Morsi = Boko Haram = jihad = Islam
I read Khaled's letter and I was surprised by the sober understated tone. The horrors of the coup jails were not portrayed fully.But yes, enough is enough . That is an innocent man jailed for no crime and the world is happily looking elsewhere. And Khaled is not alone. There are nearly 41,000 men ( and women and children) in the same ordeal.
Exactly, that is Morsi and his cabinet's crime \ working hard to make Egypt a better place...
It isnt in the best of America's interest that Egypt or any other Arab country to b a better place.
So in to support a ruthless merciless military coup and out with a civilian democratically elected gov.
there was no coup in egypt, the millions who were in the street were the majority and they all wanted morsy to leave, i think amanpour should leave too coz she's a liar
I think this is a classic sympathy story for western media to chew on! Yes, there are people jailed in Egypt, just like there are many jailed in the US! Egypt has a new leader, and we believe that he will lead the country in a new direction. The Justice system, which is independent from the presidency, will make the decisions case by case. Even people who are guilty of crimes have families...
he same sob story that ms. Amanpour is famous for. one sided, full of holes and lies and totally devoid of any journalistic honesty or integrity. No matter how you distort the truth about what happened or is happening in Egypt, to kiss more Moslem Brotherhood feet, it will not change the truth or the facts or the right direction Egypt is on its path to clean the country from these terrorist islamists, the mother-ship of all delusional ideology that plagued the world for 80 years, including Hamas, El-Qaeda, Ansar El-Islam, And now the jewel of the crown ISIS. It all come from the same cesspool called the Moslem Brotherhood. Keep supporting them, Amanpour.
Yes enough is enough for real just stay in Canada where I don't get it how did u even immigrated in the first place in less than one year? Anyway just stay there and if ur husband has no crimes to be sentenced for he will join u there and leave us Egypt free of ur crazy thought and lies..
We lived in Egypt u all Muslim brotherhood talking lies about morsy trying to fix and stuff one year of fear we lived
One year of lies we lived
One year of insecurity we Egyptians lived
One year of stupid president doing and saying stupid thing
While u idiots are clapping for nothing.
One year of treating most Egyptian as they don't belong to the country

Yeah u seem that u forget a lot and lie a lot
Come now and see the bombings from u people
Gatkom El 2arf .
May the MB and their likes, all rot in HELL. Their problem is that they wanted to impose their sick ideology on the rest of Mankind. Every time I see the Rabaa hand sign, I respond to them with a well deserved, universally recognized sign . Regrettably that sign cannot be displayed in public or on TV.. I am sure you get the point!
