Lawyers Omar Khadr in Court Today to Ease his Strict Bail Conditions

Omar Desires a Normal Life, Bail Conditions Relaxed

Omar’s pro bono lawyers, Dennis Edney and Nate Whitling, are in court today to argue for ease in his strict bail conditions.

Omar was finally granted bail on May 7, 2015 and tasted freedom for the first time in almost 13 years. In an affidavit, Omar says that re-entry has been “going great” and, “I have been embraced by many members of the community and made many new friends.” However, the ankle bracelet – a perpetual reminder that he is not a free man – which is part of his bail condition has caused him embarrassment (naturally) in public when it went off by itself.

After 13 years of wrongful imprisonment, Omar also wants to visit his family in Toronto, particularly his grandmother to whom he is very close to, and who is ill. Therefore Omar asks a Canadian court to ease his bail conditions so he can at least visit his family in Toronto; a natural desire to proceed towards a normal life.
