A U-S military court is causing a delay of the appeal of Omar Khadr’s war-crimes convictions. The Canadian Press has learned the Court of Military Commission Review has told both sides to file arguments only on whether the court has the authority to hear the appeal. The court’s decision could see the case drag on indefinitely if it decides it has no authority to hear the appeal regardless of its merits. The American lawyer for the former Guantanamo Bay prisoner calls it terribly unfair.
