Islamic Relief Canada's "Statement of Claim"
Islamic Relief Canada (IRC) has made the following "Statement of Claim" against Tom Quiggin and six other personalities. This "Statement" is provided here to complement the defendant's "Statement of Defence" which can also be found on this C3RF web site. It is hoped that the two documents will provide the reader with a more balanced view of the issues in play as IRC, the plaintiff, lays charges of defamation against Tom Quiggin et all, the defendants.
This "Statement of Claim" is quite adamant in
denying any connection between its operations and those of any other
organization allegedly involved in terrorist activities - including Islamic
Relief Worldwide. They assert they are a charitable organization that
operates to benefit those in need at home and abroad and offer an impressive
list of recipients to prove the point. They are glad to have the
support of the Government of Canada through a number of taxpayer initiatives
including those associated with the passage of Motion M-103. They also
point out that Islamic Relief Canada and Islamic Relief Worldwide operate as
separate and independent legal entities with projects pursued on an individual
basis and under separate contract.
