Message from Omar Khadr to his supporters


On Monday, March 25, Chief Justice Mary Moreau granted me the freedom I have been long awaiting. This decision did not bring an end to my legal battles but it has removed the shadow of indefinite chains from my life. I would like to thank everyone who has stood by me throughout the years.

I would like to give special thanks to Nate Whitling, who has and continues to, tirelessly defend my rights..

I would like to thank the members of the Free Omar Khadr Now group along with the Pour Omar Khadr group who have been a consistent support system for me and also have worked to bring awareness to the facts of my case. In addition, I would like to thank Lawyers Rights Watch for bringing my case forward to the United Nations Committee Against Torture.

I would also like to thank all of my fellow Canadian citizens and people across the world who have taken time out of their day to message me words of support. Your words are like rays of light in the darkness.

  4. So thrilled to hear that you are finally truly free. We still live with your case everyday in our household as it consumes my husband Sam’s attention 7 days a week. You couldn’t have anyone better down here working on your behalf. It’s a tough group to fight against, as you know, but he is giving it all he has. Best of luck with everything, college, etc. There are only good things in your future.
