Trudeau reiterates allegations and takes "Extremely Seriously"..
The Khalistan terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar was killed, according to allegations made by Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday. He also asked New delhi for assistance in the investigation. He made these statements after india rejected his claims, calling them "absurd" and "politically motivated." The killing of a Canadian on Canadian soil, which is something of utmost and most fundamental significance in a nation of rule legislation in the world where international rule-based order matters, is something that there are reasonable grounds to suspect that agents of the government of india were involved in, the PM said.
We have a rigorous, independent justice system, and we have reliable processes that will go according to schedule... As a nation that upholds the rule of law, it is our duty to ensure that those processes are thorough and independent. That's what we're making sure of. At the same time, we are making sure that Canadians are protected and that we defend the international system of rules-based order. We are doing this in tandem with our allies, he continued.
The PM added that there are credible allegations that Canada, as well as the rest of the world, needs to take very seriously. "It is crucial that we allow justice processes to proceed with the highest level of honesty as a country with a powerful and self-sufficient justice system, but I can assure you that the decision to share these allegations before the house of Commons on monday morning was not done lightly and was done with the utmost seriousness," he said.
