A Superior Court judge said yesterday he was having difficulty accepting part of the Crown’s case against a man charged with sending tampered water and bombs to his enemies.
Adel Arnaout, 39, has pleaded not guilty to 11 counts of attempt murder along with five explosives offences. He testified he never intended to kill or seriously injure his targets but wanted to scare his foes and police.
Arnaout had a background in chemistry so he was aware the substance in the water bottles would not be lethal if ingested, Justice Todd Ducharme said.
