Punting terrorists, assassins and other undesirables: Canada, the Human Rights Committee and requests for interim measures of protection

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The author critically analyzes the derisory manner in which Canadian courts have regarded Canada's international human rights treaty obligations. More specifically, relying on the recent Canadian judicial pronouncements in Ahani v. Canada, the author questions the usual justifications put forth by domestic courts to disregard requests for interim measures of protection made by the Human Rights Committee.
