TORONTO — A Federal Court judge has upheld almost all the allegations against an Algerian in Ottawa, ruling he is a member of the Osama bin Laden network, has engaged in terrorism and is a danger to Canadians.
Justice Simon Noel handed down his ruling this morning in the case of Mohammed Harkat, whom Canada has been trying to deport for eight years but who had become a poster boy for opponents of federal security laws.
The court also dismissed a constitutional appeal and an abuse of process claim brought by Mr. Harkat, who moved to Ottawa and married a Canadian but whom the judge said all the while concealed his involvement in terrorism.
“Having carefully considered the evidence presented during the public and closed hearings
and after having assessed it on a balance of probabilities, I conclude that the Ministerial position on almost all the allegations made against Mr. Harkat must be accepted,” the judge wrote in his 186-page ruling.
