“He was to be arraigned Monday afternoon for perpetrating a hoax regarding terrorist activity..” A hoax: perhaps he was hoping to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60).
“Man arrested on terror charges after arriving in Canada from Tunisia,” QMI Agency, December 8, 2014:
MONTREAL — Quebec provincial police arrested a 36-year-old Canadian man on terrorism charges after he returned from Tunisia.
Nejib Belhaj-Chtioui was led off of a plane at Montreal’s Trudeau Airport on Sunday.
He was to be arraigned Monday afternoon for perpetrating a hoax regarding terrorist activity.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the alleged target was in Canada or elsewhere.
Sgt. Audrey-Anne Bilodeau said Belhaj-Chtioui was known to travel frequently between Canada and Tunisia.
“I think he was living here and there,” she said. “A few weeks or a few months in Montreal and a few weeks or a few months in Tunisia. I don’t have any details if he was working for a group.”
Bilodeau said she also didn’t know if Belhaj-Chtioui was on any Canadian terrorist watch lists.
He’s the second Montrealer arrested on terrorism-related offences since last week….
