CSIS forced to hand over secret records in Ottawa terror case

An Ontario Superior Court judge has ordered Canada’s spy agency to reveal its secret records — including financial dealings — about a prized agent who was paid to infiltrate an ISIL network in Ottawa.

It’s a decision that could give the public rare insight into the inner workings of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service — from how they recruited an informant, to how they tested his reliability, to how much they paid him for his intel.

The court order comes after a successful third-party records application by Solomon Friedman, the lawyer defending accused terrorism financier and recruiter Awso Peshdary, 27

    Radical Islam loves Canada .
    I just can’t figure out WHY.
    Maybe ,I should ask Justin.

  • BillyHW

    Why are we infiltrating ISIS if the only thing we’re planning to do is bomb them with parkas?

    • Shebel

      Why waste money on parkas ?
      When we can bring them all here and give them homes.

  • Shebel

    No more Borders.
    No more Intelligence.

    No more Canada.

    VOTE for JUSTIN.

    What could go wrong with national security being decided by non elected judges?

    • tom_billesley

      National security is meaningless to post-nationalists.

  • A Hamilton Guy

    What do you expect from a judge. He is a lawyer, they have no morals.

  • tom_billesley

    Defense lawyers know that charges against their clients may be dropped if they press for release of information that may compromise intelligence gathering methods and assets.

    Even in the aftermath of WW2, many prosecutions of war criminals were not pursued because damning evidence was withheld from prosecutors by intelligence services in order to conceal their methods.

    • Alain

      Which is exactly why national security must never be left in the hands of lawyers. At worst a judge could request such information for his own benefit in order to decide if the case is valid, but the information must not be shared with anyone representing the defence. Not doing this is exactly why what you described happened.

    They had to pay him because muslims aren’t turning in their own which proves that they support ISIS and want Canada to be an islamic state one day .
    Here’s one of the brain dead moron Liberals that will get us killed , this village idiot is in denial and clueless of the 1400 years of war on non-muslims to slaughter all the unbelievers.
