(CANADA) Court Report: Islamic State supporter pleads guilty to killing Toronto woman with hammer #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.30: A Toronto man who approached a woman on a sidewalk and killed her with a hammer last year pleaded guilty on Thursday to murder and terrorism, admitting he did it for the so-called Islamic State…..

#AceDailyNews says the supporter pleads guilty to killing Toronto woman with hammer,” by Stewart Bell, Global News, August 26, 2021:On his laptop, police found searches for details of a Feb. 2, 2020 terrorist attack in London, England, as well as lectures by Al Qaeda propagandist Anwar Al-Awlaki.

In an agreed statement of facts, Saad Akhtar said he left his home at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 21, 2020 carrying two notes pledging allegiance to ISIS and intending to kill as many people as possible.

The 32-year-old said he approached a random victim, Annie Hang-Kam Chiu, punched her to the ground and used a steel hammer he had bought at Canadian Tire to smash her skull as she lay on her back.

He then placed a note next to her that read: “Islamic State Baquiya,” an ISIS slogan. The second note, found later in his backpack, read: “This is for the Islamic State, & all the crimes against Muslims. God is great!”

Akhtar was sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 25 years.

The case marks Canada’s first conviction for the crime of “murder, terrorist activity,” the Public Prosecution Service of Canada said.

Crown prosecutors have filed the same charge against a youth accused of an Incel-related attack in Toronto, and the suspect in the vehicle attack that targeted a Muslim family in London, Ont.

Hang-Kam Chiu, 64, worked at a rice pasta factory. Every morning, she stopped at a Tim Horton’s near her home for coffee and to help seniors with their English.

Akhtar said he had been planning a killing since 2019, but after murdering Hang-Kam Chiu, he decided to turn himself in.

He walked into Toronto Police 22 Division at 9:50 p.m. that night.

He was covered in blood and carrying a bag. He told officers he had just killed a woman and was arrested, according to the agreed facts filed in the Ontario court.

The police station was evacuated when police found what they thought was a bomb in his bag, but it turned out to be aerosol cans bound together, which he had intended to set alight if he was caught.

Police found the hammer at a bus shelter:

On his laptop, police found searches for details of a Feb. 2, 2020 terrorist attack in London, England, as well as lectures by Al Qaeda propagandist Anwar Al-Awlaki.

During a two-and-a-half hour interview at Toronto Police 41 Division, Akhtar said he chose his victim because she was “alone, not strong and was the appropriate height to be attacked with a hammer.”

He told police he was born in Pakistan, single and lived with his parents. He said he had attended Ryerson University and was an “IT person, more or less.”

“My motivation was a terrorist attack,” he said, according to a transcript of the videotaped interview.

“I guess I was just browsing online and I came across some, um, stuff, which, which kind of pushed me in the direction of, you know, these type of things.”

He said he left the note beside the body, “Just so you guys know it was terrorism.”

Akhtar told police he was “supportive of this idea of Islamic State” and had heard about other ISIS supporters conducting attacks in the West.

“So I’m like, hey, maybe I can do that,” he said.

“And you must retaliate for what is being done in Muslim lands or states. And you have the ones who settle in, the ones who … you know, sort of integrate, they’re like not really Muslims. So [to] be a good Muslim you have to do this.”…..

CANADA: ‘ STEPHEN HARPER ADDRESSES NATION OVER TERRORIST ATTACK ON PARLIAMENT ‘

#AceBreakingNews – CANADA – October 23 – Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper described the perpetrator of a “brutal and violent” attack on the Parliament complex in Ottawa that left a soldier dead Wednesday as a “terrorist” in an address to the nation. 

“We will not be intimidated. Canada will never be intimidated,” Harper said before vowing that the attack would “lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts” to keep the country safe and work with Canada’s allies to fight terrorists.

The assault rocked Parliament over and over with the boom of gunfire, led MPs to barricade doors with chairs and sent people streaming from the building in fear. Harper was addressing a caucus when the attack began outside the door, but he safely escaped.

He gave his address Wednesday evening from an undisclosed location.

Earlier Wednesday, Canadian authorities identified the shooter as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32. A government official told Fox News that they have been advised that Zehaf-Bibeau, a Quebec native, was thought to be a recent convert to Islam who had changed his name from Michael Joseph Hall. Investigators offered little additional information about the gunman. However, Harper said in his address that “in the days to come we will learn about the terrorist and any accomplices he may have had.”

` Two Journalists Covering ` Bildeberg Conference ‘ are Arrested Under False Pretences ‘

#AceNewsServices – TORONTO – JUNE 01 – On MAY 28, 2014 – Dan Dicks of Press For Truth and Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change were arrested at the Marriott Hotel while covering Bilderberg 2014. They were eventually released without being charged with a crime.

Reasons given for the arrest were at first “drugs” even though none were found, then after public backlash and a demand for answers the reason given was “engaging in suspicious activity”.


This was an illegal detention of journalists and the rights of the free press were violated.

“…respect for a free press is the cornerstone of our democratic system, especially when covering an event like Bilderberg.” — Dan Dicks

Activist and investigative journalist Dan Dicks is at the Bilderberg protest in Denmark with his media company, Press for Truth.

The protest is taking outside the Marriott Hotel where the 62nd annual Bilderberg meeting is happening. Both the meeting and demonstration will occur from May 29 to June 1.

This four-day annual event is an opportunity for activists and citizen journalists to protest the secretive meeting of the world’s top financial, political and industrial elite.
