The families, friends and colleagues of two Canadians arrested in Egypt say they're very concerned about the safety of their loved ones.John Greyson, a Toronto-based filmmaker and York University professor, and Tarek Loubani, a doctor in London, Ont., were in Cairo and on their way to Gaza on Friday when they were arrested by Egyptian police.Loubani's family says the pair's detention "falls short" of Egypt's commitment to democratic values.The men have been held in a Cairo prison for more than 48 hours.Canada is pulling a number of diplomatic levers to seek their release and to obtain more information.A source at the Department of Foreign Affairs also says Egypt's ambassador has been summoned to meet today with senior Canadian officials in Ottawa to discuss the detentions.The Canadian ambassador in Cairo was also to meet with Foreign Affairs officials to find out more about whether the two men are facing charges.The ambassador met with the pair Sunday in the Cairo prison where they are being held and consular officials were expected to meet with them again today.Junior foreign affairs minister Lynne Yelich was also expected to voice the government's concerns over the nature of the arrests in a diplomatic note to the Egyptian foreign minister.Although Canadian consular staff have been in contact with the pair, Egyptian authorities have yet to justify their detention, said Justin Podur, a friend of both men.Greyson's family says in a statement that they're confident the Canadian embassy in Cairo is doing "everything they can" to free the pair.In the same statement, Loubani's brother says although he recognizes Egypt is going through a painful transition, detaining a doctor and filmmaker without due process is "clearly a step in the wrong direction.""The Egyptian transitional government has frequently repeated its commitment to democratic values and the rule of law," said Mohammed Loubani."The continued detention of John and Tarek clearly falls short of that commitment."Ottawa is demanding Egyptian authorities explain the detention.
