We have heard from Canadian consular services that they managed to visit Tarek Loubani and John Greyson in the Egyptian prison facility. Tarek and John have both passed messages through consular services that they are okay. We still have no information about charges. Consular services will be seeing Tarek and John again tomorrow.
