Let media interview Omar Khadr, lawyers urge Federal Court

CP's Colin Perkel reports:
"The public has a right to know as much as possible about Omar Khadr before he is released from prison, especially since the federal government has repeatedly branded him an unrepentant terrorist, the Federal Court heard Monday.
"In urging the court to force prison authorities to allow media to interview the former Guantanamo Bay inmate, their lawyer said the government itself had put the issue on the public stage.
“'The Canadian public has a right to know and understand,' media lawyer John Phillips told Judge Richard Mosley.
“'No one knows who he is. This guy is going to be out and in the public. We have a right to know who he is before that happens.'”
