Khadr waived right to appeal and shouldn’t get bail, Ottawa argues in court document

Omar Khadr waived his right to appeal when he signed a plea agreement in Guantanamo Bay and should not be allowed to apply for bail, the Canadian government argues in court documents filed late Monday.

Granting Khadr bail could also jeopardize relations with “Canada’s most significant treaty partner with respect to the international transfer of offenders” — the United States.

The 40-page filing was in response to Khadr’s application for bail, which will be heard in an Edmonton courtroom March 24. His lawyers have argued that Khadr should be granted bail while his Guantanamo conviction is challenged in the U.S. courts.

    there are far too many political figures and academics who really like khadr ,and what he did and to who. there are already universities preparing a feather bed job for him, I would not be too sure that justice will prevail at all . he has too many sole mates among the elites

    I can’t believe he isn’t out yet walking the streets with all of the other thousands of murderers….

      Well, when he gets out, and happens to kill a Native Nishnawbe, he’ll only get 6 years, Time and a Half off, for time spent in custody….

    Khadr will be awarded $12 million eventually from all this.

      Some lawyer scumbag (like there’s any other kind) is probably doing it “pro boner” just for the publicity and to gain some friends in left wing politics
