Statement by Liberal Leader Bob Rae on the Repatriation of Omar Khadr

Posted on September 29, 2012

OTTAWA– Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on the repatriation of Omar Khadr:

“Omar Khadr’s return to Canada is long overdue. Mr. Khadr, a Canadian citizen, was a child soldier. It is extremely unfortunate that it took the Conservative government this long to fulfil its responsibility to bring him back to Canada.

Now Mr. Khadr will serve the remainder of his sentence under the supervision of the Canadian correctional system, and we can ensure that he receives proper treatment and rehabilitation.”
