Entrapment Defence Sets Free Two in Terrorism Case

A British Columbia couple convicted of terrorism charges have had their verdicts tossed out in a court decision that criticized the investigators for their "egregious" conduct in manipulating naive suspects into carrying out a police-manufactured crime. In R. v. Nutall, Justice Bruce concluded that without the heavy-handed involvement of undercover officers, it would have been impossible for Nuttall and Korody to articulate, craft and execute a terrorist bomb plot. Ultimately, their role in carrying out the plan was minuscule compared to what the police had to do. The judge noted that "[i]t was the police who were the leaders of the plot."
