A 19-year-old Mississauga, Ont., man awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to terrorism offences in a 2016 plot to detonate bombs in New York City in support of ISIS is "vulnerable" and "extremely fragile," his lawyer says.
Sabrina Shroff, who is representing the man, spoke to CBC News on Friday, saying Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy is doing the best that he can under the circumstances.
"It's a very difficult situation undoubtedly — not just for him but also for his entire family," Shroff said, emphasizing his young age. "We worry about him daily."Yes, poor lad. So young. So delicate. How could he possibly know what he was doing when, allegedly, he became involved in a plot
that allegedly included detonating bombs in Times Square and in the New York subway system, as well as shootings at various concert venues.
According to the information unsealed Friday, Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy purchased bomb-making materials and helped secure a cabin within driving distance of New York City for the purpose of building explosive devices.Sounds to me like Sabrina, she of the Queen Victoria royal "we," is worrying about the wrong people.
