The couple who newly converted to Islam, was acquitted of terrorism charges by the BC Supreme Court in June 2016, after declaring that they were victims of entrapment by the RCMP. The ruling by B.C. Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce that the pair was no threat to public safety. “The world has enough terrorists, we do not need the police to create more,” Bruce said. They were a part of an RCMP sting operation to entrap them in an attempt to blow up the BC legislature.
“There was no imminent risk of harm to the public or the need to disrupt ongoing criminal activity,” Bruce said. “The police were acutely aware that without the constant supervision and direction provided by (the undercover officer), the defendants would be incapable of completing their part in the plan."
