Youth facing terrorism charges released after bail hearing

After a bail hearing spanning three days, Justice of the Peace Kreling of the Ontario Court of Justice decided to release a youth charged with terrorism offences. The youth, represented by Borys Law and Sean Ellacott, was released to the care of two responsible persons.

Simon Borys, who has been leading the defence, commented to CBC: “I understand the concern that people may have given the nature of the allegations — all I can say is that we do have a very nuanced but enlightened system of bail in this country for dealing with young persons that balances all of the different competing interests including public safety.”
