MONTREAL - The case of a Montreal man who is accused of violating the terms of a terrorism-related peace bond will return to court July 22.

Merouane Ghalmi was granted bail this past May after his arrest for allegedly breaking a condition he was not to consult terrorism materials online.

He was released after agreeing to several strict conditions that forbid him from going on the Internet.

Ghalmi, who is in his early 20s, was also ordered to continue wearing a tracking bracelet monitoring his movements.

A summons was issued in February for Ghalmi after the RCMP expressed fear he would commit a terrorism offence.

Because the contents of a sworn affidavit have been sealed, it is not known why the Mounties are concerned about him.

Ghalmi signed off on the peace bond at the end of March, agreeing to a long list of conditions including giving up his passport and agreeing not to communicate with people in Syria.

At the time, he was also required to hand over the passwords to all his electronic devices.
