Alberta youth arrested in terrorism investigation subject to peace bond

BY The Canadian Press, Jun 24, 2023 6:19 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

Police in Calgary say they have arrested a youth in relation to a terrorism investigation.

Details about the accused's identity are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

RCMP say the youth was arrested last week and appeared in court under a section of the Criminal Code that allows for a peace bond if there's fear the person may commit a terrorism offence.

If granted, the peace bond is in effect for up to one year or, if there's a previous terrorism conviction, up to five years.

Police say the youth has been released from custody and is subject to several conditions pending a future court appearance.

RCMP say the case is related to last week's arrest of a 20-year-old Calgary man on terrorism charges.

He faces two counts of facilitating a terrorist activity and two counts of participating in or contributing to an activity of a terrorist group.
