Justice in Tiers: Security Certificate Detention in Canada

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This article takes the form of an edited and annotated conversation between the co-authors. Mohamed (Moe) Harkat, an Algerian refugee, has been deemed a ‘security threat’ and subject to a Canadian immigration security certificate since 2002. He experienced indefinite preventive detention, without charge or trial, in Provincial and Federal institutions, and is currently released on historically-strict bail conditions. In this article, Moe and Sophie Harkat discuss the experience of security certificate detention, both from the perspective of a detainee and from that of a spouse campaigning for her husband’s release. The authors argue that security certificate bail is in effect another form of incarceration, made possible by pervasive surveillance and control arrangements that blur the boundaries between the domestic and the carceral. The article advances an abolitionist stance towards the security certificate regime, grounded in a rejection of two-tiered (citizen versus non-citizen) justice, secret proceedings, and legal tactics that erode due process in the name of ‘security’.
