Omar Khadr’s defence team says it has expert testimony indicating the soldier he is accused of killing died as a result of injuries inflicted by an American grenade.
The lawyers say the evidence will be added to the results of the defence’s wider investigation of the July 2002 firefight, and show the American assault was a “botched operation.” The claim follows the lawyers’ release of videotapes of Canadian officials interrogating Khadr that include statements he made that the prosecution in his war crimes case will have analyzed.
