Toronto 18 member found guilty of terrorism offences

Toronto 18 member Shareef Abdelhaleem has been found guilty of participating in a terrorist group and intending to detonate bombs.

A spokesman with the Public Prosecution Service of Canada says the court found the Crown established Abdelhaleem’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Dan Brien says the defence elected to call no evidence on the issue of guilt or innocence.

However, he has not been convicted because the defence has filed a notice seeking to stay the case on the basis of entrapment.

The trial is expected to continue Monday with arguments on the entrapment motion.

Abdelhaleem and 17 others were arrested and charged with terrorism offences in 2006 and came to be known as the Toronto 18.
