Andrew Duffy reports:

Canada’s border agency engaged in an unauthorized intelligence-gathering exercise, rather than a legitimate search, when it raided the home of Ottawa terror suspect Mohamed Harkat, a Federal Court judge has ruled.

Judge Simon Noël said Harkat’s constitutional right to privacy was seriously breached in last month’s raid, which featured 16 law enforcement officers and three dog teams.

He ordered the agency to return all material seized in the May 12 raid and to destroy any photocopied documents.
