Omar Khadr is looking for unsupervised visits with his older radical sister Khadr’s sister, Zaynab Khadr.
His sister is planning to come to Canada and Omar wants unsupervised visits and conversations with her, but his lawyers said the request was denied.
Omar said there’s no evidence his sister did anything wrong, instead the media made it look like she did.
In an interview she was asked how parents could allow their children to become suicide bombers and Zaynab responded: “You must be very brave. You must be very, very, very brave. I mean I don’t have the guts to do that yet.”
Omar Khadr responded by saying his sister was “saying things out of frustration.”
Omar is not allowed to use the Internet and can’t travel outside Alberta unsupervised, courts said his restrictions are in place for a reason.
Omar plans to move out of his Edmonton and down the road to Red Deer.
