Joint Statement with MP Adam Vaughn on the Detention of Alexander Sodiqov

Posted on July 29, 2014

TORONTO – Liberal MPs Chrystia Freeland (Toronto Centre) and Adam Vaughan (Trinity-Spadina), today issued a statement on the detention of University of Toronto student Alexander Sodiqov:

“We remain concerned about the fate of Alexander Sodiqov, a University of Toronto student recently released from prison by the security services in Tajikistan. He was detained last month while conducting legitimate academic research supported by the University of Exeter. Alexander is still not permitted to leave Tajikistan.”

“We are grateful that Alexander is out of jail. But it is essential that he and his family return soon to their home in Toronto. His colleagues, his neighbours and the academic community at the University of Toronto are following this case closely and are eagerly awaiting his return to his studies.”

“Today, the political economy of the developed West has again changed and we are at the beginning of a new tectonic political shift. The problem now isn’t stagflation, but secular stagnation – low growth and low interest rates.”

“To succeed, Liberals need to be as enthusiastic about eliminating unnecessary red tape as Conservatives are. Liberals must lead, not resist, efforts to use information technology and big data to streamline the state.”
