How corrupt are these alleged law enforcement agencies?? How politically compromised are they?
The credibility of Canada's spy agency took a major hit yesterday when a Federal Court of Canada judge suggested that officials may have lied and intentionally concealed vital information for years in a case targeting terrorism suspect Mohamed Harkat.
Mr. Justice Simon Noel also ordered the Canadian Security Intelligence Service to give the name of a key source in the Harkat case and an uncensored file on him to special advocates charged with safeguarding Mr. Harkat's interests.
"This court will be reviewing all orders, issues and evidence provided to date in this proceeding to see if any further judicial action is required to preserve the integrity of the administration of justice," Judge Noel warned in his ruling. "This review will require the recalling of several CSIS witnesses."
Judge Noel's ruling came just two days after lawyers for CSIS gave him a "top secret letter" providing new information about the reliability of the source and conceding that it probably should have been disclosed earlier.
The judge said in his ruling that the information disclosed on Tuesday "raises questions in relation to possible prevarication by CSIS witnesses called to testify concerning the reliability of the information provided by the human source."
