Case # 36081 – May 14, 2015
David Pelham, Warden of the Bowden Institution, et al. v. Omar Ahmed Khadr

At issue is whether Omar Khadr would serve the remainder of his sentence for murder and terrorism-related offences in a federal or provincial correctional facility. Khadr, who fought for al-Qaeda as a 15-year-old in Afghanistan, was released on bail last week after being detained at Guantanamo Bay and in the United States and Canada since 2002.
