A Canadian couple convicted of a terrorism plot will be set free after a judge ruled they had been entrapped in a police sting operation.
John Nuttall and Amanda Korody were found guilty of planting pressure cooker bombs at the British Columbia legislature on Canada Day in 2013.
A judge said police manipulated the couple into carrying out the attack.
The pair did not have the mental capacity plan the attack on their own, the judge added.
“The world has enough terrorists. We do not need the police to create more out of marginalized people,” British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce wrote in her ruling.
Nuttall and Korody, two Canadian-born citizens, were convicted in 2015 on three terrorism-related charges, including conspiracy to commit murder and possessing explosive devices for a terrorist group.
