13 Canadian Healthcare workers detained in Gondar


13 Canadian healthcare workers and volunteers, allegedly practicing medicine in the country are detained in Gondar, Northern part of Ethiopia.

According to media reports, the group is detained for alleged distribution of medication and offering medical services without prior approval from government authorities, however, the Alberta based Canadian Humanitarian denied the alligations it had engaged in the activity.

“The care they provide in Ethiopia is the same care they would provide here in Canada. We are vigorously defending the actions and decisions of our team knowing that every decision was made by highly trained and certified Canadian medical professionals and that their mission on this trip was to provide essential medical care to the citizens of Ethiopia who need it most,” Canadian Humanitarian said in a statement on its website.

Following the news of the detention of these 13 Canadian citizens, the Canadian government, with its consular representatives have been in contact with the government of Ethiopia.

The group was traveling in the mountainous northern city of Gondar when they were detained on Friday. In addition to 10 volunteers, three Canadian staff members and two local employees were taken into custody.
