On January 11, 2010, a member of the "Toronto 18" pleaded not guilty in a Canadian court for his alleged role in a failed 2006 terrorist plot to bomb the Toronto Stock Exchange and government buildings. Shareef Abdelhaleem, the first adult of the group to be tried, allegedly planned to profit from the attacks by investing in and selling particular stock before the bombings. Abdelhaleem's lawyer argued that his client was entrapped by the key witness in the case, who was allegedly paid millions of dollars by Canadian authorities for his assistance in the investigation.
