Government Issues Committee Report; Wed., Feb. 04, 2004

(1) The new Cabinet appointed by Paul Martin on Dec. 12, 2003 included Irwin Cotler as Minister of Justice. Mr. Cotler was heavily involved in the 1985-86 Deschenes Commission hearings, in drafting the subsequent war crimes legislation, in the John Demjanjuk case and in supporting the d&d policy adopted by Allan Rock in January 1995.

(2) An article by Janice Tibbetts in the Edmonton Journal and the Calgary Herald on Jan. 06, 2004 states that Mr. Cotler is “primed to hunt Nazi war criminals” … “including two recent actions against two unidentified men whose names have not yet been made public”.

(3) On Jan.06, 2004, Justice R.D. Reilly accepted the application of Helmut Oberlander to examine the d&d process utilized by the government to strip him of his citizenship.

(4) The above items plus two articles by Eugene Harasymiw (Ukrainian News, Jan. 21, 2004 and Edmonton Journal, Jan. 28, 2004) are archived in the Odynsky Files at

(5) In an article titled “Two new war crimes cases” in the Canadian Jewish News of Jan. 29, 2004, Paul Lungen quotes the deputy director of the Justice Department’s crimes against humanity and war crimes unit, Lynn Lovett, at length on the “Nazi war crimes” issue. Lovett said the Crown is seeking leave to appeal Judge Reilly’s decision.

(6) On Jan. 30, 2004, Andrew Telegdi was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to Paul Martin in the area of Aboriginal Affairs. Hopefully, he will be able to continue to fight against the d&d process.

(7) Dr. Lubomyr Prytulak continues to defend his Ukrainian Archive with a letter titled “Canadian Jewish Congress Fanaticism Infects the University of Toronto” to Ed Morgan, Chair of the CJC.
