Defence tests reliability of audio surveillance transcript in terror case

OTTAWA - A lawyer for accused terrorist Khurram Syed Sher is pressing a police detective on the reliability of a transcript of a key meeting between Sher and two alleged co-conspirators.

In Ontario Superior Court, defence lawyer Michael Edelson has peppered Det. Mireille Clement with questions about how she prepared the transcription from secret audio surveillance of a discussion at an Ottawa home.

During the July 20, 2010, meeting, Sher seems to express a desire to arrange overseas tactical training through a Pakistani man who claimed to be with the Taliban.

Clement was part of an Integrated National Security Enforcement Team that conducted extensive surveillance of the purported plotters.

The Crown says the homegrown group was dedicated to supporting violent jihad by whatever means possible.

Sher has pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiring to facilitate terrorism.
