MONTREAL - The case of a Quebec man charged with trying to leave the country to participate in the activities of a terrorist group has been put off until the end of the month.
Ismael Habib appeared in court today in Montreal where he was expected to have a date set for a bail hearing.
Lawyers instead agreed to adjourn proceedings until March 30 without any indication whether Habib will seek bail.
The prosecutor has said she will oppose his release on the federal terrorism-related charge if the hearing takes place.
In addition to the terrorism charge, Habib, 28, also faces a charge of giving false information in order to obtain a passport.
The Crown says it is also continuing to seek a peace bond against Habib -- which would restrict his activities should he be released.
