Supreme Court next stop for accused terrorist Harkat in deportation battle
By Jim Brown

OTTAWA (CP) - Mohamed Harkat, an Ottawa man jailed for nearly three years on suspicion of terrorist ties, is headed for the Supreme Court of Canada in an effort to stave off deportation.

Lawyer Paul Copeland said Tuesday the high court will be his next stop after the Federal Court of Appeal took only 90 minutes to reject a constitutional challenge by his client.

At issue is a security certificate filed by the government against Harkat alleging he has links to al-Qaida and other terrorist groups and should be sent back to his native Algeria.

Under the controversial legal process that governs such certificates, defence lawyers have not been allowed to see the detailed intelligence gathered by Ottawa to support its claims.
