For some time, my office has represented a veteran, let's call him Eddy, in his attempt to correct a flagrant abuse of process at a summary trial in August 1944 when exculpatory evidence clearing him of guilt was rejected out-of-hand by his then commanding officer. It has been more than 22 months since our application for the complete quashing of an illegal finding of a guilty verdict has been submitted to no less an authority and a genuine supporter of veterans' rights than General Walt Natynczyk, the chief of the defence staff. This has not yet produced any results, however. Meanwhile, Eddy is not getting any younger and he continues to be victimized by this gross injustice. Since Remembrance Day is right around the corner and it is a during which politicians of all stripes are known to express their gratitude to our veterans, we believe that the time has come to tell Eddy's tale. Perhaps this will provide the required impetus to the bureaucracy at National Defence Headquarters to get moving on Eddy's file.
