Toronto 18 plotter says he’s changed
A member of the so-called Toronto 18 terror cell said Monday he is a changed man but acknowledged he did not think it would make much difference to his parole.
Appearing at a parole hearing north of Montreal on Monday, Ali Dirie said he’s still opposed to Canada’s role in Afghanistan, but is now pushing for political and peaceful solutions instead of blowing up buildings and attacking politicians.
Dirie was sentenced to seven years in prison last October for his role in a plot designed to wreak havoc on Canadian targets.
He told parole board members he had little faith they’d believe he’d changed.
Dirie says the only people he needs to convince are members of the public. He said he’ll do so when he’s released from prison — in October 2011 at the latest.
The Somali-born Dirie was arrested in 2005 and was already in prison when police moved in on the Toronto 18 the following year.
Dirie is locked up in a special-handling unit, reserved for the most violent inmates.
His case team recommends he remain detained until the end of his sentence.
The parole board is expected to issue a decision in a day or two.
