It’s not over yet, terrorist Omar Khadr may not receive $10 million from the Trudeau government after all, but don’t get your hopes up too high, this legal battle could last years.
The lawyer for the widow of an American soldier killed in Afghanistan said Tuesday they have filed an application so that any money paid by the Canadian government to a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner convicted of killing him will go toward the widow and another U.S. soldier injured.
Lawyer Don Winder made the comments as a decision by the Canadian government to apologize and give millions of dollars to Omar Khadr came under mounting criticism.
Winder, a Salt Lake City-based attorney for Speer and Morris, said they filed an application a few weeks ago in Canada to domestic that judgment in Canada. It has yet to be heard.
“We will be proceeding with that application and trying to make sure that if he gets money it goes to the widow of Sgt. Speer and Layne Morris for the loss of an eye,” Winder told The Associated Press.
