Judge reduces bail restrictions on terror suspect

A Toronto terror suspect held under strict bail conditions, amounting almost to house arrest, has won an easing of some of his restrictions.

Mohamed Zeki Mah­joub, who is under a security certificate because of suspected links to extremist groups, was released from almost seven years of detention in 2007.

He has to wear a GPS tracking device and be supervised by his wife and stepson.

Mahjoub sought relief from some of the more stringent conditions and Justice Carolyn Layden-Stevenson of the Federal Court says he’s entitled to some relief, including permission to be alone in his home during the day.

She says he can also stay out in his backyard until 11 p.m., two hours longer than was allowed previously.
