DOCUMENTARY: Omar Khadr: Out of the Shadows – CBC Documentaries

Omar Khadr: Out of the Shadows – CBC Documentaries

Omar Khadr: Child Soldier or Murderer?
The 28-year-old Canadian has been at the centre of that controversy since he was 15. In October 2010, Khadr pleaded guilty to fivewar crimes, including “murder in violation of war,” in return for a plea deal that gave him an 8-year sentence and chance to return to Canada. He later recanted his confession and his Guantanamo conviction is being appealed in the U.S.
“Omar Khadr: Out of the Shadows” features unprecedented access and exclusive interviews with Omar Khadr during his first few days of freedom in Edmonton, where he was finally released on bail on May 7, after nearly 13 years in detention.
