Supreme Court will hear Khadr appeal

Prime Minister has one more chance to overturn Federal Court ruling

The Supreme Court of Canada will hear the Harper government’s appeal of a Federal Court ruling that ordered the government to seek the repatriation of Omar Khadr. The Federal Court ruling was earlier upheld by the Federal Court of Appeal. The Supreme Court has also agreed to expedite the proceedings and will hear the case on Nov. 13. It has previously ruled that interrogations by Canadian authorities violated Khadr’s Charter rights.
