The public may get a chance to see the evidence in the case against Awso Peshdary, the 20-year-old Ottawa man arrested following the Project SAMOSSA anti-terrorist probe.

Yesterday, assistant Crown attorney Julie Scott informed a judge that she will not be seeking a publication ban.

Defence lawyer Richard Morris had only received a package of 19 documents a few hours before yesterday’s bail hearing for charges not related to terrorism and hadn’t studied it yet, but did not ask for a ban.

“An open process is always the preferable one,” said Morris, after asking that the bail hearing be adjourned until Friday. “I’ll look at the material and speak with my client. I’ll make my decision based on his instruction.”
