Trudeau to pay convicted Islamic TERRORIST $10.5M for suffering

Recommended Posts

Personally, I don’t blame the Liberal Government for the payout, it’s in their DNA… it is what it is and they be what they be. I blame the voters, ya got what ya paid for. Right here, where I live they have 59% approval, which is near to historic. This payout wasn’t predictable (OK, it was) but it’s hardly surprising either, is it? There is much more to follow as ISIS implodes.

So, there must be liberals who agree and support the payout and I’d love to hear their thoughts on it. No links please… an opinion would be nice. I can swamp you with links to the “world’s flat”.

Love the satire.... :Dancing-Chilli:

 

" Saying that his government was “terribly sorry” about the way the former NFL superstar has been treated following his conviction on charges of armed robbery, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has agreed to pay $10 million to O.J. Simpson.

“Just like Omar Khadr, O.J. is the true victim,” said Trudeau, referring to the former Guantanamo detainee also given a $10 million payout by the Canadian government. “It is only fair that people arrested and imprisoned for their crimes are rewarded handsomely by the Canadian government.”

Just think of the trouble morality causes.

Had the losers won the battle and some of the western soldiers survived, but in a horribly wounded state, you can be sure their deaths wouldn't have come as a consequence of their wounds. Nevertheless, in this case an American medic acted to save the life of a combatant regardless of the fact that this so-called child had just killed one bud and wounded another, never mind the god knows how many maimed & killed prior through his roadside bomb building activities, but to hear Canada's pm apologize to an islamist on our behalf knowing he had murdered our people and then finish by making him a 'filthy' rich man is just too much.

Thankyou Defcon.....well said. I can only wonder if the turd would reward someone if it was his family that had suffered from the actions of the khadr clan...not that it would be a realistic scenario.

A Terrorists Big Payday, Courtesy of Trudeau

Tags: America Canada idiot leftists Islamic terrorism Justin Trudeau Muslim terrorism Omar Khadr

Canadas prime minister hands millions to Omar Khadr, whose victims may not be able to collect.

 

Omar Khadr pulled the pin from a grenade and tossed it at Sgt. First Class Christopher Speer, a U.S. Army Delta Force medic, on July 27, 2002. Those are the facts to which Mr. Khadr, a Canadian citizen, confessed when he pleaded guilty before a Guantanamo Bay war-crimes commission.

 

For several years Mr. Khadr had been living and training with al Qaeda in Afghanistan under the tutelage of his father, Ahmed. The Khadrs reportedly lived in Osama bin Ladens Kandahar-area compound.

 

Speer died of his wounds 1½ weeks after the attack, which left another soldier, Sgt. First Class Layne Morris, partly blind. Mr. Khadr, badly wounded, was treated and transferred to the Cuba base. In 2012 the U.S. returned him to Canada to serve the remainder of his eight-year sentence.

 

Mr. Khadr was just shy of his 16th birthday at the time of the attack. In 2010 Canadas Supreme Court held that the interrogation of Mr. Khadr at Guantanamo Bay by Canadians in 2003-04 violated Canadian standards for the treatment of detained youths. These violations occurred during the mandates of Liberal Prime Ministers Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin. The Supreme Court left it to the government, then headed by Conservative Stephen Harper, to determine an appropriate remedy, and to the civil courts to rule on any damages.

 

A few months later Mr. Khadr entered his guilty plea on five war-crimes charges. He was sentenced to 40 years in prison, reduced by pretrial agreement to eight years. The Harper government determined that returning Mr. Khadr to Canada would be the appropriate remedy. In 2012 he was repatriated to serve the remaining years of his sentence. He was released on bail in 2015.

 

Mr. Khadr wasnt satisfied. He sued the Canadian government for 20 million Canadian dollars (about US$16 million at current exchange rates).

 

Meanwhile in Utah, Sgt. Speers widow, Tabitha, his two young children and Mr. Morris sued Mr. Khadr and received a judgment for $134.1 million in damages. Their goal was to preserve possible future action against Mr. Khadrs assetsat the time a remote possibility.

 

But last week Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a formal apology to Mr. Khadr and a massive cash settlement, though no court had ordered him to do so. Mr. Trudeau refuses to disclose the amount of the settlement, but leaked reports peg it at C$10.5 million. Thats an extravagant sum in the Canadian justice system, which is much more restrained in awarding damages than U.S. courts.

 

Mr. Trudeau knew there was an outstanding judgment against Mr. Khadr in Utah. An insider told the Canadian Press wire service that Ottawa rushed the payment to Mr. Khadr to dodge compliance with the Utah judgment. The Speer family and Mr. Morris had filed for an injunction June 8 to enforce the Utah judgment in Canada. The Trudeau government had the money out the door before their petition could be heard in court.

 

Last week the Speer family filed an emergency injunction to freeze Mr. Khadrs assets. On Thursday an Ontario judge denied the request, describing it as extraordinary. Had Mr. Trudeau waited for a court ruling, the Speers claims could have been adjudicated without extraordinary measures. The prime ministers choice thus undermined the Speer familys legal options.

 

Mr. Trudeaus actions are an affront to the memory of Christopher Speer, to Tabitha Speer and her children, to Layne Morris, to our U.S. allies, and to all men and women in uniform. This payout was a cynical subversion of Canadian principles. Mr. Trudeau made Omar Khadr a millionaire, and he didnt have to.

Paying $10.5 million to make it go away was far better that spending upwards of $35million the conservatives spent to try and make it go away.

15 years and nearly $5 million in legal costs later, Ottawa apologizes to Omar Khadr

“I hope Canadians take away two things today,” Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said on Friday. “First, our rights are not subject to the whims of the government of the day. And second, there are serious costs when the government violates the rights of its citizens.”

By Michelle ShephardNational Security Reporter
Fri., July 7, 2017
 

“On behalf of the Government of Canada, we wish to apologize to Mr. Khadr.”

With that statement Friday, the federal government officially acknowledged for the first time that Canada violated the rights of former Guantanamo Bay detainee Omar Khadr when he was a teenage captive.

“I hope Canadians take away two things today,” Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould told reporters in Ottawa, standing alongside Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale. “First, our rights are not subject to the whims of the government of the day. And second, there are serious costs when the government violates the rights of its citizens.”

The “serious cost” in terms of numbers is $10.5 million in compensation — although none of the ministers who spoke about the settlement Friday would confirm how much Khadr and his lawyers were paid.

Goodale did note that nearly $5 million was spent in legal fees over the years fighting three losing battles against Khadr’s lawyers all the way to the Supreme Court. Given those rulings, Goodale said the government had “virtually no chance of success” in defending Khadr’s civil suit and prolonging the legal battle would only cost taxpayers more.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer held his own press conference Friday saying Canadians are “shocked” by the settlement. “Make no mistake,” he said “this settlement is a choice made by (Prime Minister) Justin Trudeau.”

Friday’s apology ended what has been a tumultuous week of news, speculation, debate and politicking over a case that has always been about much more than a 15-year-old Canadian and the American soldier the Pentagon said Khadr killed.

Khadr admitted to killing the soldier ... that makes him a murderer and the Liberal government a pack of only god knows what to call them ... case closed.

That make him a soldier participating in a sanctioned way and it make the deceased a casualty of war.

As nasty as it sounds,when you sign up to go to way as a member of an armed force you are taking the risk that you will be killed.  Thats what you signed up for. allowing the family of every soldier killed in armed conflict to civilly sue the enemy combatant would be a nightmare for EVERYONE.

As for admitting the act.  That was done under duress, torture and threat of more torture.

The case was fought and lost 3 times in the supreme court.  how many times do  you need to be told you were wrong before you do what needs to be done.  Had the case continued in court it would have cost Canadians far more that $10 mil.

Do I like it?  no.  Was it inevitable? yes.

Not quite:

The case was 3 different applications of three parts of the Charter.  The SCC said in the first case that Canada should not have given transcripts of their interviews to the Americans (even though the Americans probably had original tapes of the interviews).  The second part said that Canada was complicit in an illegal detention because they interviewed Khadr when the government knew he was sleep deprived. The SCC upheld the third case that the government was NOT obligated to seek repatriation.  

The case in whole is typical SCC in that it is gobbledygook to the layman and leaves future generations to try and decipher what was meant. 

Constitutional law — Charter of Rights  — Application — Canadian citizen detained by U.S. authorities at Guantanamo Bay — Canadian officials interviewing detainee knowing that he had been subjected to sleep deprivation and sharing contents of interviews with U.S. authorities — Whether process in place at Guantanamo Bay at that time violated Canada’s international human rights obligations — Whether Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms applies to conduct of Canadian state officials alleged to have breached detainee’s constitutional rights.

 

Constitutional law — Charter of Rights  — Right to life, liberty and security of person — Fundamental justice — Canadian citizen detained by U.S. authorities at Guantanamo Bay — Canadian officials interviewing detainee knowing that he had been subjected to sleep deprivation and sharing contents of interviews with U.S. authorities — Whether conduct of Canadian officials deprived detainee of his right to liberty and security of person — If so, whether deprivation of detainee’s right is in accordance with principles of fundamental justice — Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms , s. 7 .

 

Constitutional law — Charter of Rights  — Remedy — Request for repatriation — Canadian citizen detained by U.S. authorities at Guantanamo Bay — Canadian officials interviewing detainee knowing that he had been subjected to sleep deprivation and sharing contents of interviews with U.S. authorities — Violation of detainee’s right to liberty and security of person guaranteed by Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms — Detainee seeking order that Canada request his repatriation from Guantanamo Bay — Whether remedy sought is just and appropriate in circumstances — Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms , s. 24(1) .
