Trial in Canada for Pair Accused in the 1985 Air India Bombings Finally Over

 

Nearly 20 years after the worst pre-9/11 terror strike in aviation history, justice is finally in sight for relatives of 331 people killed in the 1985 Air India bombings of two flights that originated in Vancouver, Canada, on June 23, 1985.

The first bomb killed two baggage handlers at Japan's Narita airport, as they transferred a suitcase to Flight 201 and the second exploded 54 minutes later, aboard Flight 182, killing all 329 on board the Boeing 747, off of the coast of Ireland.

Held in a specially built, high-security courtroom in Vancouver, the trial ended Friday after 19 months, costing a record $130 million. Verdicts for the two accused Sikhs are expected in March. The attacks relate to political events in India in 1984.

  See, thats justice.  
 
Not something in you can hope in the US. Since you are already convicted even before you commit any crimes, you know, preemptive convicting! New concept! Bush owes me big for this one.
