Agreement Re Transfer of Detainees in Afghanistan

Given the discussion in the Globe and Mail and in Parliament about the Canadian-Afghan arrangment for the transfer of prisoners taken by Canadian troops, I thought readers might be interested in the governing document itself. The Arrangement for the Transfer of Detainees Between the Canadian Forces and the Ministry of Defence of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, between the Canadian Forces and the Minister of Defence of Afghanistan can be found on the website of the Department of National Defence. Perhaps ominously it has thirteen points.
