Second Montreal man signs peace bond amid terrorist fears
A second Quebec man rules fear will execute a terrorism violation has turned off on a peace bond that will badly restrict his progress and have him under tight observation for the next year.
Daniel Minta Darko, 26, will have to use a GPS tracker, hand in his passport and is not allowed to use or own a cellphone.
He is also banned from using social media to communicate with anyone in Syria, Turkey and Malaysia or anyone with links to a terrorist group.
Darko is also forbidden from contacting Merouane Ghalmi, who signed a similar peace bond two weeks ago.
The Canadian Public Prosecution Service stated last month the national government has used peace bonds in terrorism-related matters fewer than 10 times.
Ghalmi’s bond was the first terrorism-related association signed in Quebec but at the time was the second such case to reach a Canadian court in one week.
Two days earlier, the RCMP declared it had arrested Amir Raisolsadat, a 20-year-old man from Prince Edward Island, and was seeking a peace bond amid allegations police feared he would commit a terrorism offence.
Raisolsadat, a student from Stratford, was rescued on conditions and must return to provincial court April 20.
A component of the Conservatives’ questionable anti-terrorism bill issued introduced earlier this year would make it easier for the RCMP to issue such peace bonds.
