Justice process is being manipulated in Canada

A lawyer who represents one of the 15 suspects accused of plotting to blow up Parliament Hill and offices of the CBC and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service says politics was behind the decision to stop a preliminary hearing earlier this week. The Crown made the unusual decision to take the case directly to trial without fully examining star witness and police informant Mubin Sheikh.

On CBC Radio's As It Happens, defense lawyer Dennis Edney said the justice process is being manipulated. Edney also said he has asked a Superior Court judge to release files from CSIS to shed light on what happened in the lead up to his client's arrest.
