Malalai Joya—Rights of Female Parliamentarians in Afghanistan

Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer: I have a supplementary question for the Leader of the Government in the Senate when inquiring about Madam Joya. She was here last week and spoke to many Canadians. She was travelling across the country, setting out what had happened to her and how she cannot return to Afghanistan.

In the honourable senator’s inquiry, can she ask what efforts we are making to help her return to Afghanistan?

Senator LeBreton: I would be happy to do so.
