Khadr has recently flown from a U.S. base in Cuba, through an American military transport plane, and arrived on Saturday morning in a Canadian Forces Base Trenton in eastern Ontario. Afterwards he was shifted in Canadian official’s custody, which later placed him in a maximum security Millhaven Institution.
Baird also clarified that now Khadr’s next future, including the coming of his parole in May, 2013, is not a government’s matter. He stated that “in Canada, politicians don’t make these decisions, they’re made by an independent parole board. That’s the way Canadian law works and this won’t be treated any differently.” Khadr has already pleaded guilty of five different war crimes committed in 2010, one of which includes throwing a grenade that killed U.S. Sgt. 1st class Christopher Speer.
