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

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

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

Ghalmi signed off on the peace bond at the end of March, agreeing to several conditions including one that prohibited him from consulting or attempting to look up materials that promote violence or religious or political extremism.

He was arrested in May on suspicion of violating that specific condition but he was granted bail.

Ghalmi, who is in his early 20s, wasn't in court Wednesday but will have to be present Nov. 26.
