Activist Roger Clement's Parole Conditions Lessened

Now has the right to attend events.

by Daniel Johnson


 

Roger Clement was sentenced in 2010 for his part in the firebombing of a Royal Bank branch in Ottawa.  He was released in March 2013, with  parole conditions that had originally prevented him from 'participating in groups or events propagating anarchist ideology, anti-Establishment ideology or civil disobedience'. 

But on Nov. 26 the parole board of Canada removed those restrictions because '"Such vague language...could result in an unacceptable infringement of your rights as a Canadian citizen," . 

However, he is restricted from 'furthering the actions of individuals, groups or movements "advocating violence" to achieve their aims.' and associating with people involved in criminal activity as well as a short list of specific activists.
