USA: In whose best interests? Omar Khadr, child ‘enemy combatant’ facing military commission
Omar Khadr, a Canadian national, has been in US military detention for approaching six years. Taken into custody in July 2002 when he was 15 years old, he is now facing a “war crimes” trial by a military commission the procedures of which do not comply with international fair trial standards and contain no juvenile justice provisions. It appears the USA’s treatment of Omar Khadr has been conducted in its own perceived national security interests rather than the best interests of the child.
