Man with suspected terrorist links arrested for a second time after being freed

imageA fugitive and failed refugee with alleged ties to an Algerian terrorist group has been arrested in Montreal for a second time after evading border authorities.

Mohamed Ratni was first arrested in 2012 and then conditionally released by the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) after being detained for 19 months. Shortly after his release Ratni disappeared once again and evaded authorities.

Prior to his latest arrest, Ratni was on a “Wanted” list on the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) website.

CBSA officials failed to deport Ratni after his first arrest despite the fact that he was deemed a flight risk by the IRB. The CBSA was unable to get travel documents from the Algerian government which were required for his deportation.

In Ratni’s failed refugee claim he admitted to working with the al-Qaeda affiliated Armed Islamic Group (GIA) in Algeria.

  1. They’ll be sure to send him somewhere secure this time, maybe CAMH.
