The Federal Court has ruled that a Sudanese-Canadian man who was refused a Canadian passport to return to the country can sue the federal government and Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon, the CBC reported. Abousfian Abdelrazik was arrested in his native Sudan in 2003 where he says he was tortured despite never being charged. He lived in the Canadian Embassy in Khartoum for several years as Canadian officials refused to give him a new passport. He was also put on the UN no-fly list. He was allowed to return to Canada following a Federal Court ruling last year.
