RCMP make third terror-related arrest following charges against Ottawa twins

The RCMP have arrested a third Ottawa man in an alleged terrorist conspiracy.

OTTAWA — The RCMP have arrested a third Ottawa man in an alleged terrorist conspiracy.

The Mounties charged Suliman Mohamed, 21, with the criminal offence of participation in the activity of a terrorist group.

Mohamed was also charged Monday with conspiracy to participate in a terrorist activity with two other Ottawa men.

On Friday, twin brothers Ashton Carleton Larmond and Carlos Larmond of Ottawa were charged with terrorism-related offences.

A lawyer for the brothers said Saturday they planned to vigorously dispute the charges.

The recent arrests underscore the reality that there are individuals in Canada who have become radicalized to a violent ideology, “and who are willing to act upon it,” said Chief Supt. Jennifer Strachan, criminal operations officer for the RCMP in Ontario.

The RCMP thanked Integrated National Security Enforcement Team partners from the Ottawa police service and the Ontario provincial police.

The Mounties said they would not be providing additional details, given that the matter was now before the courts.
