refugee status: Ensaf Haidar, wife of the jailed Saudi Arabian blogger Raif Badawi, shows a portrait of her husband as he is awarded the Sakharov Prize, in Strasbourg, France, according to Toronto Star. Haidar isn't worried Ottawa's decision to take in teen refugee Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun will hurt her husband's case, even though there is speculation that the incident could further strain Canada-Saudi relations. Ensaf Haidar said the Canadian government did the right thing in granting refugee status to the 18-year-old woman who drew global attention after fleeing her allegedly abusive family. Christian Lutz / AP I'm happy for her, Haidar said in a phone interview. That's what a democratic country is. I'm very proud of Canada, too. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
