One of three bank firebombing suspects freed on bail

OTTAWA, Ont. – One of the men charged in the May firebombing of an Ottawa bank was freed on bail Friday.

Lawyer Trevor Brown said engineer Claude Haridge was released on condition he not associate with G8 or G20 protesters.

He must also report to police daily and stay at least 10 metres away from Royal Bank branches.

An anti-establishment group calling itself FFFC-Ottawa claimed responsibility for the May 18 attack on a Royal Bank in Ottawa and promised further action during the G8 and G20 summit meetings this week.

Haridge, 50, was charged with careless storage and handling of ammunition after police seized hundreds of rounds during a raid.

Bail hearings are still pending for two other men charged with arson and use of explosives.
