Accused of killing a severely wounded Taliban insurgent, a Canadian army captain today received bail. The accused captain will however, have to follow 7 strict conditions in the interim period.
Robert Semrau, the Canadian army captain who is accused of killing a wounded Taliban insurgent received bail from the military court. The accused captain, Mr. Robert Semrau is accused of killing a severely wounded Taliban insurgent while fighting US led War on Terror in Afghanistan in October, 2008. His lawyers however reportedly stated that an uncertainty lies if the accused would face any trial on the second-degree murder charge which has been laid against him.
As per latest reports, Judge Lieutenant-Colonel Louis-Vincent d'Auteuil released the accused on 7 strict conditions while conducting the trial at Canadian Forces Base, Petawawa. The 7 conditions that have been offered includes ban on handling guns as well as ammunition or any other military weapon. The conditions are reportedly such specific that the accused captain is barred from using the military weapons even, while conducting regular military duties.
However, quoting the senior officials some latest reports suggested that the weapons ban would not possibly prevent Capt. Semrau from undergoing any useful work before a trial. The officials noted that the accused could always ask a judge for amending the order if handling a gun turns out to be absolute necessary for him.
