Interveners

After the Ontario Superior Court of Justice found that there was sufficient evidence to commit S and N, who are Canadian citizens, for extradition to the United States to be tried there on charges related to their alleged support of a terrorist organization, the Minister of Justice ordered their surrender. Those decisions were subsequently upheld on appeal.
