Canadian government still blocks Tunisian money

Ex-Tunisian dictator’s brother-in-law, Belhassen Trabelsi, fled to Canada after the fall of Ben Ali with a fortune stolen from the Tunisian people. Other members of the extended family of former dictator are living in Canada and the money is in canadian banks, but the Canadian government has not given the funds back to the Tunisian people. Amandla’s Gwen Schulman follows up on this case.
