Re­stric­tions on ex-gitmo in­mate:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

A Cana­dian judge eased re­stric­tions on former Guan­tanamo de­tainee Omar Khadr’s use of the In­ter­net on Fri­day, but de­nied his re­quest for un­fet­tered con­tact with his sis­ter who sup­ports Is­lamic ex­trem­ists.

Khadr, 30, had asked for more free­doms while on bail in Canada pend­ing a de­ci­sion in his ap­peal of a war crimes con­vic­tion by a US mil­i­tary tri­bunal. Jus­tice June Ross said there was no ev­i­dence Khadr’s sis­ter Zaynab had at­ten­u­ated her ex­trem­ist views (she pub­licly sup­ported al-Qaeda), and de­nied his re­quest for un­su­per­vised vis­its.
