The trial on terrorism-related charges for Nejib Belhaj-Chtioui has been set for April 25, 2016.

The 36-year-old was met by the Quebec provincial police’s special service for investigating extremist threats at Montreal-Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport after he disembarked from a flight from Tunisia in December 2014.

According to the warrant issued for his arrest, Belhaj-Chtioui is alleged to have transmitted information and committed acts that gave investigators reason to believe could be linked to terrorist activities, between May 13 and May 20, 2011. ​

In January, a judge refused to release Belhaj-Chtioui on bail. He's expected to return before Quebec Superior Court at the end of this month to have that decision reversed.

He remains incarcerated.
