He was Abdurahman Khadr's first lawyer. Shortly after Khadr's first press conference Galati resigned from all his terrorism-related cases , after publishing a threat left on his answering machine which stated:
"Well, Mr. Galati. What's this I hear about you working with the terrorist now, helping to get that (expletive) punk terrorist Khadr off. You a dead wop."
Galati requested 24-hour surveillance of his house; when the RCMP refused to provide this, he declared that "we now live in Colombia because the rule of law is meaningless" and later indicated he believed the call came from American intelligence.
Mr Galati went on to claim: ""The voice is similar and likely the same as a voice of someone who threatened one of our former clients," he said, adding later that "in that case, our client disappeared.""
In 2006, he represented Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, a suspect in the 2006 Toronto terrorism case. On June 12 he alleged that the treatment of the prisoners and the handling of the case made it impossible for the accused to obtain a fair trial.
