Canadian man found not guilty on Algerian terror charges he says were based on intelligence from Canada

A Canadian man facing 20 years in an Algerian prison based on intelligence he alleges was provided by Canada’s security services, was found not guilty of terrorism offences Tuesday.

According to Gary Caroline, the Canadian lawyer for Abderrahmane Ghanem, the Algerian court rejected evidence provided from “outside sources” in releasing the 30-year-old.

“I’m tremendously happy he’s going to be released,” Caroline said Tuesday morning in a telephone interview from Vancouver.
