TORONTO (AP) - A man accused of plotting to derail a train in Canada with support from al-Qaida has given a rambling statement in court and appears to say he is not recognizing its jurisdiction.
"My comment is the following because all of those conclusions were taken out based on criminal code and all of us know that this criminal code is not a holy book," Chiheb Esseghaier said Wednesday. "We cannot rely on the conclusions taken out from these judgments."
The judge told him to "save that for another court," and take the advice of his lawyers. He was given a May 23 court date.
Charges against Esseghaier, 30, and his suspected accomplice, Raed Jaser, 35, include conspiring to carry out an attack and murder people in association with a terrorist group.
