Abdullah Khadr, Omar Khadr’s older brother, will not be extradited to the United States on terrorism charges.
The country’s top court announced Thursday it will not hear an appeal from the Canadian and U.S. governments, which were seeking to have Khadr extradited to the United States, where he is wanted in Boston on charges of supplying weapons to al-Qaida in Pakistan.
Khadr has maintained his innocence.
By refusing to grant leave to appeal the case, the Supreme Court of Canada effectively put an end to Khadr’s extradition case, and upheld two lower court rulings in Khadr’s favour.
