Don’t believe ‘the last gasp of a guilty man’ on terror charges: Crown
OTTAWA ─ A “radicalized” domestic terror plotter in the thrall of his extremist friend was intent on waging violent jihad in Canada, a Crown prosecutor has alleged.
Jason Wakely made his closing arguments Tuesday in the trial of Misbahuddin Ahmed, a hospital diagnostic imaging technologist facing three terror-related charges.
“The case against Mr. Ahmed is overwhelming,” said Wakely, who was only too pleased to give several reasons why.
He urged the jury to reject the 30-year-old’s “self-serving” testimony ─ “the last gasp of a guilty man” ─ telling jurors they should judge Ahmed on his words and deeds in 2010.
