9/11 : Judge lifts some restrictions on alleged terrorist Adil Charkaoui
OTTAWA — Adil Charkaoui. says he deserves all of his freedom after a federal judge eased some of the strict conditions imposed on the alleged terrorist.
Federal Court Justice Daniele Tremblay-Lamer says some of the restrictions had become disproportionate, given the number of years that had passed since Charkaoui first faced terrorist allegations.
A spokeswoman for a coalition that supports Charkaoui says he now will be able to go out unsupervised.
He will also be allowed access to the Internet on his home computer, although he will be closely monitored.
Charkaoui, a landed immigrant from Morocco who was arrested in Montreal in 2003 under security-certificate legislation, will still have to wear a tracking bracelet.
Charkaoui says he deserves all of his freedom because he didn’t do anything wrong.
” It was just suspicion for things that happened nine years ago.”
“So, I spent six years of my life, two years in jail and four years with conditions, which I found very humiliating without doing anything wrong.”
