Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism – A 29-year-old woman has been charged with alleged participation with the terrorist group ISIS after being brought back from Syria earlier this year, the RCMP said.
Ammara Amjad initially returned to Canada from Syria on April 4 and was arrested upon her arrival at the Montreal-Trudeau International Airport on a terrorism peace bond, then released with conditions.
The RCMP’s Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) laid a formal charge on Oct. 5 in Milton, Ont., for alleged participation in the activities of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The offence can bring up to 10 years in prison if found guilty.
She was among four Canadian women, along with their 10 children, brought back to Canada in April from the Syrian detention camps for ISIS suspects. Nine total have since returned. The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) previously said the women were from “ISIS families.”
