Calgary jihadists’ associate cleared on terrorism charges in Algeria

A Calgary man who also holds Algerian citizenship has been cleared of terrorism charges after spending more than a year in an Algerian prison awaiting trial.

Adberrahmane Ghanem, 30, has spent the last 13 months in El-Harrach prison, notorious for abhorrent conditions. He was charged with being a member of a terrorist group outside of Algeria. If convicted, he faced up to 20 years in jail.

    Expect him to sue Canada if he gets back here just like Maher Arar did when he got in trouble in Tunisia and tried to sneak into the USA and be harboured by CAIR at a local Saudi funded mosque .
