The 33-year-old man wore a dark grey T-shirt as he sat behind glass partitions in the prisoner's box, with closely-cropped black hair and beard.
He shook his head at times while evidence was presented at the bail hearing. CBC News cannot report on that evidence due to a publication ban.
Hamdan faces six terrorism-related charges under the Criminal Code, two counts of each of the following:
- counseling to assault causing bodily harm for the benefit of a terrorist group.
- counseling to commit aggravated assault for the benefit of a terrorist group.
RCMP accuse him of distributing propaganda connected with ISIS, and allege he was instructing people to commit murder in the name of Jihad.
A decision on Hamdan's bail application will be made July 31.
