Report Chretien To Challenge Gomery's Findings in Federal Politics Posted November 2, 2005 Well he is entitled to as a citizen of Canada to a) challange allegations against him and b ) be presumed innocent until proven guilty. He has a right to a fair trial under the court of law and a right to an appeal. And although he swore a oath to tell the truth at the inquiry, he did not get a chance to have his laywers counter with their own questions to him. Nor did his laywers get a chance to question the other witnesses. And anyone can argue that the questions asked to him have a bias. This was an inquiry..not a court of law. Who the hell knows at this point where this will go. But he is well within his legal right to appeal.
