Deportation hearing begins for alleged ISIS supporter arrested in B.C.

An RCMP officer testified Monday that he had found “clear support” for the so-called Islamic State in the online posts of Othman Ayed Hamdan, a B.C. resident facing deportation.

At the start of a hearing to decide whether Hamdan should be deported as a danger to Canada’s security, Const. Tarek Mokdad said the Facebook posts were a “cause for concern.”

“I found clear support for the Islamic State,” Const. Mokdad, a member of the RCMP’s national security division, testified at the Immigration and Refugee Board hearing.

No worry, Justin will write him a cheque.
