Mohammad Mahjoub, a Torontonian, detained without charge for over 11 years, is going to court to seek to have proceedings against him quashed on April 23 - 25, and the proceedings are open to the public. Sign up for a morning or afternoon shift by clicking here: (Federal Court, 180 Queen Street, 6th floor, Toronto).

In the summer of 2011, government officials entered Mr. Mahjoub's lawyers' room in the Federal Court, seized boxes of documents, viewed and read the materials and then mixed them up (commingled) with their own government documents. This represents a serious breach of attorney-client privilege, an essential part of a fair trial.

This latest, entirely illegal and unprecedented access to confidential defense documents by government officials representing the Department of Justice, proves yet again that no legal, fair or just processes are being followed in security certificate detentions and hearings.

ACTION ALERT: Axe the Refugee Exclusion Act (Bill C-31)

On February 16th, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney introduced bill C-31. This bill amounts to an immigration “omnibus” bill, one that effectively hollows out Canada’s system of refugee protection.
