WINDSOR, ON, March 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Members of the RCMP-led Integrated
National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) arrested and charged one
Windsor resident with False Report of a Terrorist Activity and Public
In December 2012, the Windsor RCMP received information of a possible
terrorist plot involving several males in the Windsor area. INSET
investigators immediately began investigations into the reported plot.
Extensive interviews and enquiries were conducted which led to
investigators determining the reports of terrorist activity were false.
On December 24, 2012, INSET investigators with the assistance of the
Windsor Police Service and the Ontario Provincial Police arrested Abdul
Raham ELSAFADY (33 years old) of Windsor, Ontario. ELSAFADY was
released on conditions and is scheduled to appear in Windsor Provincial
Court on March 26, 2013 to answer to the following charges:
False Report of Terrorist Activity, contrary to Section 83.231 of the
Criminal Code of Canada
Public Mischief, contrary to Section 140 of the Criminal Code of Canada.
The RCMP and partners take all threats to national security seriously,
and to determine their credibility must fully investigate these
threats. Investigating potential threats consumes significant resources
and time for the police, as well as other agencies and partners who
play a role in public safety.
