From the BBC: BBC News - Momin Khawaja: Canada raises terrorism sentence In short, the Ontario Court of Appeals has increased the jail term of Momin Khawaja from 10 years to life. Khawaja was found guilty in 2008 of charges relating to the financing and facilitating of British extremists. The Court also upheld the convictions of or increased the sentences of other men for terrorist offences. It's a change to see courts handing down decent sentences for terrorists or actually increasing them. Canada may well have more robust legislation or a stronger will to enforce it than here in the UK. Either way its a refreshing change.
