Emails on economic jihad allowed at Khawaja trial

A judge in the trial of Momin Khawaja is allowing controversial emails written by the accused terrorist, as well as DVDs which apparently show violent acts of terrorism, to be entered as evidence in court.

Despite objections from Khawaja's counsel that the emails and DVDs were prejudicial, Ontario Superior Court Justice Douglas Rutherford said Monday that they offer insight into Khawaja's state of mind.

Rutherford said the DVDs and emails could be no more harmful than any of the explicit details revealed thus far at the trial, which is currently in its third week.
