Graham to remain free on bail

CBC North
March 24, 2004

VANCOUVER - The United States has lost a court attempt to keep an accused murderer in a Vancouver jail until he can be extradited to stand trial.

John Graham remains under virtual house arrest while his extradition proceeding goes through the court.

He's accused of the 1975 murder of Anna Mae Pictou Aquash in South Dakota in activities involving the American Indian Movement.

B.C. Appeal Court Justice Risa Levine has ruled Graham's detention is not necessary.

Graham's lawyer, Terry LaLiberte , says the U.S. accusations against his client are weak and wouldn't hold up in Canada.

He says he'll be asking the court to loosen his client's bail restrictions.

He'll also be making an application to have the murder trial conducted in Canada -- the victim was also Canadian.
