U.S. set to hand over Omar Khadr videotapes to Canadian government

TORONTO – American authorities are expected to hand videotapes of Omar Khadr to the Canadian government this week now that the head of the military commission has signed off on their release.

Khadr’s Canadian defence team, meanwhile, served three affidavits on the government on Monday in support of its Federal Court application to force Public Safety Minister Vic Toews to make a decision on the prisoner’s transfer from Guantanamo Bay to Canada. The government has a month to respond but the lawyers said they were hoping the hearing would be expedited.
