Alberta, Canada


The following excerpt is from Canada (Attorney General) on behalf of the United States of America v. Muhammad ‘Isa, 2012 ABQB 645 (CanLII):

The meaning of “conspiracy” is well established. In United States of America v. Dynar, 1997 CanLII 359 (SCC), [1997] 2 S.C.R. 462, 147 D.L.R. (4th) 399, which is also an extradition case but one that relates to an alleged money laundering operation, the majority concluded that the essence of conspiracy occurs when there is “... a meeting of the minds with regard to a common design to do something unlawful, specifically the commission of an indictable offence ...”, and further “... the offence is considered complete before any acts are taken that go beyond mere preparation ...”.
