  • Does China still harvest organs of executed? Doctors divided

    A police officer who knocked on the door of a suspected drunk driver six years ago violated the man's charter rights, so he must be found "not guilty," Saskatchewan's highest court says. The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal recently ruled on the case of John Scott Rogers, who was acquitted of impaired driving at provincial court but was later ordered to stand trial again. A provincial court judge initially said knocking on someone's door while looking for evidence can be considered an unconstitutional search, violating charter-protected privacy rights, so the evidence had to be thrown out.
