Medicine Hat, AB, resident Jeremy Williamson said he’s happy to be with his wife, Joicy, after she was able to get out of the conflict zone in Churachandpur, Manipur.
“It’s been the strangest year of my life I would say,” said Williamson in a Wednesday interview.
“I wouldn’t want to have to go through it again, and I can’t imagine what other families are going through knowing they have family in Manipur.”
Jeremy said on May 5 he was attempting to bring Joicy and her mother out of Churachandpur amid violence taking place in the area.
He expressed disappointment in Global Affairs Canada. At first, it was nice, but officials offered dangerous advice.
Global Affairs encouraged her to contact police, but it was corrupt and was not acting in people’s best interests. He said he “had US senators that were willing to send in a team to rescue my wife, but my own government didn’t care.”
