Anil Kapoor was the Special Advocate on the first Canadian case to consider whether information had emanated from torture, will speak about the challenges in mounting an evidentiary record to establish that information was the product of torture.  He will discuss the significance of the burden of proof in such cases and whether information obtained under torture can or should ever be relied upon by intelligence agencies and, if so, under what safeguards and protections.  Ultimately, Kapoor will argue that there is a need for close co-ordination between open and closed counsel to mount an effective challenge to the admissibility of information that is the product of torture.
