Lawyer Challenges Canada's Secret Evidence Law

Canada's Anti-terrorism Act allows government lawyers to meet secretly with a judge to decide what evidence should be hidden from the defence.

The Federal Court of Canada is currently hearing a matter where Section 38 of the Canada Evidence Act is being tested. Lawrence Greespon is representing Mohammad Khawaja who insists the Charter of Rights and Freedoms is being overruled by Canada's anti-terrorism measures.

How can any Canadian be expected to defend themselves properly if you are not able to face your accuser and to see the evidence that is being presented against you? Day by day, step by step, it seems as if Canadians are losing our freedoms as citizens. As long as right wing ideology is at the centre of our government, we are all in peril of losing our Charter protections

For more material on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms I encourage you and your readers to visit www.charterofrights.ca -- an unbiased, plain language, and interactive look at the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It also contains relevant case law and precedents. The website is available in English, French, Chinese (traditional), German, and Italian with 6 more languages planned.

Excellent reference site! Thanks - it's in my bookmarks now.
