Canada Could be Facing War Crimes for Refusing to Handle Detainee Issue

All the games that Harper played with the Afghan Detainee issue could land us in the International criminal court, facing charges of War Crimes.
When Toronto filmmaker Barry Stevens asked Moreno-Ocampo in his film, Prosecutor, if the ICC would pursue a country like Canada over its role in Afghanistan, he replied: “We’ll check if there are crimes and also we’ll check if a Canadian judge is doing a case or not . . . if they don’t, the court has to intervene. That’s the rule, that’s the system, one standard for everyone.”
This is not something we can simply sweep under the rug and hope goes away.
