Note – Google Translate – h/t Point de Bascule

The Quebec Court reiterated the fundamental right to a public trial Thursday and dismissed the application for two accused of terrorism who wanted a part of the evidence gathered against them is hidden from the public under the pretext that it could jeopardize their right to a fair trial by feeding “Islamophobia” and “panic climate” in Quebec.

The request was submitted by Sabrine Djaermane and El-Mahdi Jamali, both former students of Collège de Maisonneuve arrested last year and accused of trying to join a terrorist group abroad and of having planned an attack in Montreal.

Awaiting trial, both wanted to prevent publication of evidence summarized by the RCMP investigators in their application for a search warrant.

    Wow, an actual sane ruling by a Canadian judge. So rare nowadays.

  • If the trial is kept secret, it would invite speculation, rumor and possibly a mistrial.

    More systemic racist by Canada for not considering culture and allowing Shari’a Law sensitivities to be taken into account.
