Ontario’s top court has ruled the jury that convicted Raed Jaser and Chiheb Esseghaier in 2015 was improperly selected, meaning its verdict cannot stand.
Both were sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole until 2023.
The two were arrested in 2013, after an investigation involving an undercover FBI agent, who secretly recorded the men talking about terror plots they would carry out in retaliation for Canada’s military actions in Muslim countries.
