They caught the Porn killer that sent the body parts to the Canadian Liberal and Conservative parties in Germany. He also sent a hand and foot to two elementary schools in British Columbia.
After a whole lot of bucks and private military flight he's back here now and plead innocent two days ago.
I wondered about the military plane thing, and CBC must have realized everybody would be wondering and coming out crying foul about the waste of taxpayer funds.
The explanation the news story had was that the police did contact commercial airlines first, and nobody would accept the prisoner and his 'entourage'. Not surprising.
Further, if the plane stopped for refueling, once on the ground, the accused could claim asylum from the country the plane was refueling in, and that would create more legal headaches. Consider the case of the Chinese businessman who lived a decade or more in a posh Vancouver condo, fighting extradition back to China. He finally exhausted his court appeals, was sent back, and a couple weeks ago was sentenced to a long stay in prison for fraud/bribery matters.
Apparently the plane was already over in Europe anyways, and carried a bunch of military and government staffers, so it wasn't like when Peter Mackay had a plane pick him up from holiday and fly him around to PR events.
