CALGARY – Police in Calgary say they have arrested a youth in relation to a terrorism investigation.
Details about the accused’s identity are protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
RCMP say the youth was arrested last week and appeared in court under a section of the Criminal Code that allows for a peace bond if there’s fear the person may commit a terrorism offence.
If granted, the peace bond is in effect for up to one year or, if there’s a previous terrorism conviction, up to five years.
Police say the youth has been released from custody and is subject to several conditions pending a future court appearance.
RCMP say the case is related to last week’s arrest of a 20-year-old Calgary man on terrorism charges.
He faces two counts of facilitating a terrorist activity and two counts of participating in or contributing to an activity of a terrorist group.
