Case postponed for Montreal man RCMP says it fears will commit terrorism offence

A Montreal man who the RCMP says it fears will commit a terrorism offence has made a brief court appearance.

MONTREAL — A Montreal man who the RCMP says it fears will commit a terrorism offence has made a brief court appearance.

Merouane Ghalmi’s case has been postponed until next month to give his lawyer more time to review the Crown’s evidence.

A summons was issued Monday for Ghalmi, which said the 22-year-old man would be asked to sign a peace bond when he appeared before a Quebec Court judge today.

Ghalmi has not been charged with any offence and it is not known why the Mounties are concerned about him because the contents of a sworn affidavit have been sealed.

He was present in court today, represented by a lawyer.

Federal Crown attorney Lyne Decarie says a hearing will take place March 27, when conditions of the peace bond will be outlined.
