Alexis Gauthier appeals to ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed al Maktoum

Andre’s Gauthier’s dedicated son Alexis, has been campaigning for his father’s release for years and has now appealed to Sheikh Mohammed al Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai, for help.

Alexis, who lives in Quebec and speaks to his father regularly, has been disappointed with the Canadian government’s progress in discussions related to his father’s wrongful detention. Attempts to diplomatically resolve the injustice have been ignored by the government of Dubai with Canada seeming reluctant to escalate their communications.
