Supreme Court upholds anti-terrorism laws

The landmark ruling means that an Islamic terrorist from Ottawa – Mohammed Momin Khawaja – will spend his life behind bars for aiding a violent jihadist group based in England.

It also paves the way for the extradition of two other Ontario men wanted in the U.S for helping acquire arms to be used by Sri Lankan terrorists. The rulings were a vote of confidence for a contentious wave of legislation enacted following the Sept. 11 attacks in New York City.
