Red T, an international non-profit organization created to protect translators who work in conflict zones, sent a letter to Ahmed Hussen on June 20 asking for a meeting to discuss the plight of the men who spoke on behalf of the Canadian military to fellow Afghans during the war.
“To escape persecution by insurgents, many of these linguists have been forced into hiding in their home country or escaped only to be stranded in Europe,” where they are homeless or stuck in refugee camps, said the letter written by Maya Hess, Red T’s president.
