Calgary man sentenced to 12 years in prison

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS, May 26, 2022 4:40 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A Calgary man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for terrorism-related acts with the militant group Islamic State.

Thirty-six-year-old Hussein Borhot pleaded guilty last month to participating in terrorism group activity and kidnapping for a terrorist group while in Syria.

A judge accepted a joint submission from Crown and defence lawyers, who recommended eight years on the first count and another four years for the kidnapping.

The judge also imposed a lifetime firearms ban and ordered Borhot's D-N-A be submitted to a national database.
