The Toronto 18: Justice Delayed...

The government case is being inordinately delayed. Publication ban, lack 0f disclosure and public debate and scrutiny makes one wonder if this is happens in a third world autocracy or a democratic nation like Canada.

History will record June 2, 2006 as the day when police arrested members of what they claimed was Canada's first homegrown Islamic terrorist conspiracy. But in a modest middle-class section of Oakville, Rukhsana Gaya – then a department store cosmetics manager – remembers that day as the moment her family's life was shattered. For the families - fear and bewilderment -

This page is dedicated to 18 local Torontonians who have been arrested, accused and 'charged' since June 2nd, 2006: 3 are kept in solitary confinement at the Don Jail for almost 2 years; 7 are are kept in detention without bail at Maplehurst; one youth is awaiting trial; 3 youth have their charges dismissed / stayed; 4 of the 14 young adults are out on unusually strict bail conditions. All have been or are currently being deprived of their basic human rights.
