Courts deny Khadr re­quest for un­su­per­vised ac­cess to sis­ter

Waterloo Region Record - - CANADA -

Omar Khadr’s vis­its with his con­tro­ver­sial sis­ter will re­main re­stricted, but he has been granted more free­dom to use the in­ter­net. A hear­ing on whether to ease some bail con­di­tions for the for­mer Guan­tanamo Bay de­tainee was held Fri­day in Edmonton. Khadr has been out on bail pend­ing the ap­peal of his con­vic­tion by a U.S. mil­i­tary com­mis­sion for five pur­ported war crimes. Khadr, 30, was seek­ing un­su­per­vised vis­its with his sis­ter, 37-year-old Zaynab Khadr, who has in the past ex­pressed sup­port for the al-Qaida ter­ror­ist group.
