BRAMPTON, Ont. – RCMP has laid a terror-related charge against an Ontario man initially detained out of fear he might commit a terrorism act.
Kevin Omar Mohamed appeared in court today in Brampton, Ont.
The Crown told court a bail hearing for Mohamed could take up to three days.
Mohamed, 23, was arrested Friday in an unknown location under a controversial law that essentially allows detention without charge.
Police initially charged him with two minor weapons offences related to a hunting knife, but have now also charged him with participation in a terrorist group.
Mohamed’s lawyer has said it was not clear what the RCMP believed Mohamed was planning.
