Crown presents strong e-mail evidence in Khawaja case

The strongest evidence in the case of the first man charged under Canada’s antiterrorism act was revealed in court – emails he wrote over the course of a year prior to his arrest. Mohammad Mowin Khawaja, 29, wrote messages to conspirators in Britain referring to detonation devices, routing recruits to a house in Pakistan, as well as ways to send money and night-vision goggles to insurgents in Afghanistan. Defence lawyer Lawrence Greenspon conceded that his client had written the messages. A visit to an al-Qaeda training camp in Pakistan in 2003 is said to have had a lasting impact on him.
