TORONTO - The federal government is seeking to appeal the sentence of a convicted terrorist.
Saad Gaya, 22, was convicted in September of intending to cause an explosion in association with a terrorist group.
He was sentenced to 12 years.
With credit for the time he has already served, Gaya could be eligible for parole in 1 1/2 years.
The Public Prosecution Service of Canada announced Monday it has filed a notice of appeal with the Ontario Court of Appeal seeking leave to appeal the sentence.
Gaya and 17 others were arrested in 2006 as part of the so-called Toronto 18 group.
