Preview Clip

Ottawa software developer Momin Khawaja was found guilty October 29th of several counts under the Anti-Terrorism Act. He was convicted on five charges of financing and facilitating terrorism. He was also found guilty of two Criminal Code offences related to building a remote-control device known as the Hi-Fi Digimonster, intended to trigger bomb blasts. But Justice Douglas Rutherford concluded he was not guilty of terrorism offences with regard to the Digimonster, saying there was not sufficient proof Khawaja knew it was to be used in fertilizer-bomb attacks in London. Crown prosecutor David McKercher was satisfied, even though Khawaja was found not guilty on two charges. (The explosions were planned -- but never carried out -- by Islamic extremists in Britain.)
