Man facing terrorism-related charge
The father of an allegedly radicalized man who faces a terrorism-related charge will testify at his son’s bail hearing in Montreal on Tuesday.
Jeffrey Labelle’s father is expected to ask the court to release his 21-year-old son into his custody.
Montreal police say Labelle’s family tipped them off last week that he had become radicalized.
They searched his home on Friday and say they found a city map that showed the co-ordin- ates of four different police stations. Police say no direct threats were made and that they arrested Labelle as a “preventive” measure.
Labelle was charged with a Criminal Code provision that allows for the arrest of someone who “commits an act that, in all the circumstances, is likely to cause a reasonable apprehension that terrorist activity is occurring or will occur, without believing that such activity is occurring or will occur.”
