My husband, lawyer Irwin Nathanson, Q.C., will appear in front of B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman at 10:00 am on August 9th to seek access to the report of Special Prosecutor Len Doust, Q.C., regarding the matter of Ivan Henry’s wrongful conviction.
The Crown will argue that 1. the report is subject to solicitor/client privilege (the Government being the client); and 2. I, the author of a book-in-progress, lack the standing to compel access thereto.
Interesting to note that, in at least some of Canada’s relatively few inquiries into wrongful conviction cases, the Crown voluntarily produced similar kinds of reports.
