Ottawa - Mohamed Harkat, an Ottawa man accused of being an al-Qaeda sleeper agent, was grilled yesterday about where he got $1,200 (U.S.) to buy the fake passport he used to enter Canada.
Crown counsel James Mathieson questioned whether Mr. Harkat could have saved a total of $18,000 (U.S.) working at a charitable organization in Pakistan in the early 1990s.
The government is trying to deport the 36-year-old man, a refugee from Algeria, under a national security certificate because the Canadian Security Intelligence Service says he is an Islamic extremist and collaborator with Osama bin Laden's terrorist network.
Proceedings adjourned yesterday until Dec. 6.
