Commotion in Canada to miljoenenvergoeding for convicted ‘terrorist’
The Canadian government is planning a former prisoner from Guantanamo Bay, to pay damages of only 6.8 million euros. Also be apologized to Omar Khadr, said two well established sources Tuesday. The opposition is furious at the “large reward for a convicted terrorist”.
The case of Khadr keeps the tempers in Canada for years now. The Canadian was in 2002 at the age of fifteen after a firefight arrested in Afghanistan. He confessed to a medic to have killed and became the youngest prisoner at the Us military prison on Cuba. He was finally ten years.
The supreme court ruled in 2010 that Canada was guilty of violating the rights of the then minor suspect, who also by the staff of the Canadian intelligence services is being questioned. Meanwhile according to the sources, reached an agreement on compensation for Khadr that his confession has withdrawn.
The conservative opposition is not to speak about the alleged deal. “It is one thing to acknowledge that he may be badly treated,” said a spokesman. “But it’s wrong to be a delightful reward to give to a convicted terrorist, that an allied soldier has been killed.”
