Islamic Terrorist Omar Khadr Buys $3-Million Strip Mall After Trudeau Payout
Amidst the legal battles that surround Canadian former Guantanamo Bay prisoner has decided to purchase a strip mall in Edmonton for $3 million.
According to Sheila Gunn-Reid, documents related to the purchase show “the 9,150 sq. ft. commercial property was purchased with a cash lump sum on Nov. 29, 2018, by a numbered company, 2156536 Alberta Ltd., which lists Khadr as a director. The five-unit strip mall has an assessed value of just over $1.5 million, the documents show, and was last sold 2009 for $850,000.” Khadr has refused to make a statement regarding the matter, via his lawyer Nate Whitling.
The story was originally published by media outlet The Rebel Media with comments obtained by The National Post.
The Edmonton mall is in the residential neighbourhood of Kensington, with surrounding tenants including a tire shop, a garden centre, a travel agency, and a daycare.
Omar’s riches come from the controversial and widely covered settlement he received nearly two years ago, when the Supreme Court ruled that Canadian officials “violated his rights by failing to protect him from abuses suffered at Guantanamo Bay.”
“The Canadian government has put this court in a position where it has to enforce a judgment and a ruling that was derived from torture, the same torture that the Canadian government has apologized for,” he said in brief comments to reporters outside court at the time.
Khadr, who was convicted of five war crimes for acts he committed at the age of 15 that resulted in the death of an allied soldier, was released on bail in Canada in 2015, pending a “lengthy appeal of his conviction in the U.S.”
