Candlelight vigil for Azer children

Friends and family of Alison Azer are planning to come together for a public candlelight vigil in Comox Saturday (Oct. 17).

From 7 to 8 p.m., members of the Azer family and friends of the missing children will speak, local musicians will perform and a special prayer for Sharvahn, 11, Rojevahn, 9, Dersim, 7 and Meitan, 3, will be shared at Comox United Church.

In August, Azer received confirmation her ex-husband – Dr. Saren Azer –  hadn’t returned to Canada from a court-approved trip to Europe with her children.

On Aug. 24, Comox Valley RCMP sought and obtained a Canada Wide Warrant of Arrest for Azer – who practised at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Comox – in relation to charges of Abduction in Contravention of a Custody Order, contrary to Section 282 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

“Their lives are in Canada, their schools, friends and communities are here. They need to be found so they can come back to the only country they know as home.  The sooner the kids are found, the better it will be for everyone,” noted Alison in a press release.
