Canadian man cleared of aiding militants leaves UAE

OTTAWA – A Libyan-Canadian man acquitted by a United Arab Emirates court of aiding militants left the country on Thursday after initially being prevented from departing, campaigners on his behalf said in a statement. Salim Alaradi was released from prison late on Tuesday but UAE officials prevented him from catching a flight on Wednesday, citing issues with paperwork. “A few minutes ago, Canadian Salim Alaradi boarded a flight from Dubai and is safely en route to be reunited with his family,” said the statement, thanking Canadian diplomats for arranging the departure.
