Imprisoned Canadian journalist Mohamed Fahmy is trying to be strong, but his wife says he’s having a hard time after being thrown behind bars yet again.

Marwa Omara has only been able to visit her husband once since he was sentenced to three years in prison for widely denounced terror-related offences on Aug. 29, and she says the 41-year-old is suffering.

“He’s trying to look strong, but I know as his wife that he’s in pain,” she told The Canadian Press in an interview Tuesday.

“Prison is very tough, especially when you’re an innocent man and you’re just a journalist doing your job.”

Mulcair raises Mohamed Fahmy’s case with Egyptian ambassador. Canada has applied for Mohamed Fahmy’s deportation from Egypt. It’s the second time Fahmy has been incarcerated in the same case — an ordeal which began when he and two colleagues were arrested in December 2013 while working for satellite news broadcaster Al Jazeera English in Cairo.

Omara is now imploring the federal government to get her husband out of the country and hopes a letter sent to the prime minister by some 300 prominent Canadians urging action on the case will help.

The letter sent to Stephen Harper on Tuesday calls on him to act directly to secure Fahmy’s release.

“The world knows that Mr. Fahmy is an innocent man trapped in a political nightmare,” said the letter signed by former prime minister Paul Martin and former Supreme Court Justice Louise Arbour among others.”We urge you, as Canada’s prime minister, to communicate directly with President (Abdel Fattah) al-Sisi the need to have Mr. Fahmy returned home safely and swiftly. It goes to the very heart of what it means to be Canadian that we defend the rule of law and protect our fellow citizens from harm.”
