We are writing this open letter to express Amnesty International’s concern about the approach the government has adopted to dealing with the cases of thirty individuals who have been accused of having committed war crimes or crimes against humanity and who are believed to be residing in Canada. Their cases, including their names and photos, have been widely publicized on a government web-site, “Wanted by the CBSA”. Five of the thirty men have since been arrested. Amnesty International is concerned that the initiative does not conform to Canada’s obligations with respect to human rights and international justice.
