I’m hearing rumours that there will be an official announcement tomorrow (media availability?) concerning the Canadian government and Maher Arar. I’ve heard an announcement is in the works to describe the settlement of Arar’s complaint against the Government of Canada.
Will he get the $400 million that he originally asked for? I’m hearing that he’ll receive closer to $40 million.
UPDATE: The Globe and Mail puts it just north of $10 million which makes sense. Arar had updated his number to $37 million. Of course, it’ll likely be somewhere in between.
UPDATE: $11.5 million and an apology.
