Torture Inquiry Goes Public


Published: Wednesday, 10/22/2008 12:00 am EDT

The overseas detentions of three Arab Canadians was not the fault of Canadian officials, a secret inquiry by Canadian counterterrorism officials concluded on Tuesday, The Globe and Mail reported. Headed by former Supreme Court justice Frank Iacobucci, the inquiry found no evidence that officials with the RCMP, CSIS and Foreign Affairs did anything more than follow duties, although the 544-page report stated that the torture the three men suffered in foreign prisons may have "resulted indirectly from several actions of Canadian officials."
