An Alberta judge has ruled in favour of relaxing Omar Khadr’s bail conditions.
The ruling by Justice June Ross means the former Guantanamo Bay prisoner can now remove his electronic monitoring bracelet and visit his grandparents in Toronto this fall.
He can now also communicate with his grandparents in a language other than English and will see the monitoring software on his laptop removed.
Khadr will be required to have his lawyer accompany him on his trip to Toronto and will have to meet with authorities in the city.
The 28 year old who was captured following a firefight in Afghanistan in 2002, was released on bail in May, pending an appeal in the United States of his conviction for war crimes.
