BC Civil Liberties Association challenges publication ban in Legislature bomb plot case
The BC Civil Liberties Association is heading to BC Supreme Court today to challenge a publication ban and sealing order in a high profile criminal case against a couple from Surrey.
Thirty-eight-year-old John Nuttall and his girlfriend Amanda Korody, 28, were charged in July with attempting to detonate homemade pressure-cooker bombs outside the Legislature during Canada Day festivities.
Police said Nuttall and Korody were inspired by Al-Qaeda ideology.
The BCCLA plans to argue any bans should have minimal impact on the public’s right to access important information about the case.
The organization has questions about police methods and actions in the lead up to the couple’s arrest.
