Arar Named Among Most Influential People

Maher Arar says he is honoured to be on the Time Magazine list as one of the world's 100 most influential people. In a statement issued through the Centre for Constitutional Rights, Arar expressed gratitude to everyone who supported him throughout his "struggle for justice."

Arar was deported by US authorities to Syria in 2002, where he was imprisoned and tortured. A Canadian Inquiry exonerated the Syrian-born Canadian citizen of any suspected terrorist involvement last year.

Arar was awarded a $10.5-million compensation package in January.

Sanjaya from American Idol is #3 so how much merit does it have?

It is a bit of a joke really, as you can tell that most of the votes must have come from teenagers and young people in general. Rain ( korean r&b band ) are #1, ahead of Bono ( last year's winner along with the gates ). I rest my case
