Woman refuses to appear in court for third time on terrorism charges

Posted on 24 August 2017 by admin

Rehab Dughmosh will now be brought to a hearing scheduled for Monday by force if necessary, judge rules.

A Scarborough woman facing numerous terrorism-related charges will be forced to appear before an Ontario court Monday if she refuses to appear voluntarily one more time.

Rehab Dughmosh, 32, didn’t appear by video from the Milton detention centre Thursday morning after refusing to leave the centre for two previous court appearances.

At Thursday’s hearing, Justice Kimberly Crosbie ordered Dughmosh brought before the court by force if she refuses to attend again Monday.

Dughmosh, who will be warned of Crosbie’s order, is accused of swinging a golf club and knife at Canadian Tire employees and customers on June 3. In her first court appearance she pledged her allegiance to Daesh, also known as ISIS.

She has refused legal representation and has expressed her intention to plead guilty to the charges.
