Afghan interpreter all poised to land in Canada on Friday

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): An Afghan interpreter, who parents have been executed by Talibaninfo-icon, is all set to arrive in Canada on Friday, a media report said on Thursday.

James Akam, who is currently in a refugee camp in Germany, would locate his spouse and son in Kabul, where they are said to be in hiding, a Canadian newspaper reported.

“My wife and son are everything to me. It’s why I left for Germany. My dream was to go there and get to Canada and bring them over later,” he told the Toronto Sun.

Canada’s former infantryman named Eric Kirkwood, whoworked with Akamin Kandahar province, hailed the interpreter as a hero. Akam deserved to be in Canada, he added.

But while he has served with the Canadian troops as an interpreter, the one thing he has not experienced is life in Canada.

The 29-year-old is set to arrive from Frankfurt in Canada on Friday. His visa allows him to come to his dream destination along with his wife and son.
