One of the federal government's key anti-terrorism tools, the controversial security certificate, will come under the scrutiny of the Supreme Court of Canada. The high court agreed Thursday to hear a constitutional challenge from Adil Charkaoui, one of five Muslim men branded as suspected terrorists in federal certificates.
Charkaoui, 32, was arrested in May 2003 at his apartment in a working-class Montreal neighbourhood on allegations he is a sleeper agent for Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network.
He was released on $50,000 bail in February and continues to fight deportation to his Moroccan homeland. His supporters argue he would be tortured if sent back to his birthplace.
