Khadr is charged with the 2002 murder of a U.S. soldier and other war crimes and is being tried here by a U.S. military commission.
At a pre-trial hearing Monday, Khadr told Col. Patrick Parrish, the judge overseeing the case, that he wanted to fire his lawyers and boycott a procedure he called unfair and unjust.
As evidence of that unfairness, Khadr told the court he had been offered a deal by prosecutors in which he would have been sentenced to 30 years but would only have to actually serve five years. He says he cannot plead guilty to a crime he did not commit and that such a deal was set up only to make U.S. politicians look good.
