Secret Trial 5, Sophie Harkat and the Human Impact of Canada's Anti-Terror Laws

February 3, 2011
6:30pm - 8:30pm
103, Fitzgerald Building, UofT
150 College Street

The Secret Trial 5 is a new crowdfunded documentary, currently in production, that examines the human impact of Canada’s “war on terror”; specifically the use of security certificates, a tool that allows for indefinite detention, with no charges, and secret evidence. Over the last decade, 5 Muslim men, Hassan Almrei, Adil Charkaoui, Mohamed Harkat, Mahmoud Jaballah and Mohammad Mahjoub have been held under security certificates in Canada. They’ve spent between 2 and 7 years in prison each. None of them has been charged with a crime.

Though Adil Charkaoui and Hasan Almrei's certificates have been quashed, Mohamed Harkat's security certificate was ruled "reasonable" on December 9, 2010. On Jan 21, 2011, Immigration Enforcement served him with a deportation notice that his lawyers have vowed to fight all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada if necessary. The Justice for Harkat Campaign is calling for individuals and organizations to sign the statement at www.harkatstatement.com (and below). Sophie Harkat, Mohamed Harkat's wife and and organizer with the Justice for Harkat Campaign will be speaking at the event.
