After more than a year in a Beirut jail, New Brunswick potato farmer Henk Tepper reunited with his family at the Ottawa airport. He had been in custody on an international arrest warrant on allegations he exported rotten potatoes to Algeria in 2007 and forged export documents. Tepper had little to say on his way out of the airport. (During an interview with The Canadian Press in June, Tepper said Ottawa did nothing to help get him home. He said Canadian officials in Beirut told him he would be sent to Algeria to face charges. An international warrant had been issued in connection with the 2007 potato shipment, but Tepper said Canadian officials never alerted him.)
