U.S. v. Manning

January 18, 2012

Oooops, I meant H.M. the Queen v. Delisle.

The Winnipeg Free Press reports on a cross-border military justice case.  It begins,

Putting an accused navy spy on trial represents a potential legal and intelligence nightmare for the . . . government, one where it will have to resist the temptation to dispense justice in secret, say experts.

[T]he Crown will have a significant arsenal of tools to bar the door to the public and media, but at the same time there will be pressure on prosecutors to hold as much of the proceedings as possible in open court.

. . . .

"In trials like this in the U.S., a lot of the evidence has been in camera."

In looking for some Canadian MJ’s I came across this interesting court-martial related case, Canada v. Canada, 2006 FC 1532, [2007] 3 F.C.R. D-1 December 21, 2006.
