Entrapment verdict: CANADA's ANTI-TERROR STRATEGY FOUND GUILTY By: CRAIG FORCESE AND KENT ROACH, professors of law July 30, 2016
In criminal law, entrapment is a practice whereby a law enforcement agent induces a person to commit a criminal offense that the person would have otherwise been unlikely to commit. It is a conduct that is generally discouraged and thus, in many jurisdictions, is a possible defense against criminal liability.
Craig Forcese and Kent Roach are professors of law at the University of Ottawa and University of Toronto, respectively, and authors of False Security: The Radicalization of Canadian Anti-terrorism.
