A Pakistani man accused of plotting to bomb downtown Toronto has reached out to his country for help in securing his release from detention.The request by Jahanzeb Malik comes in a letter to Pakistan’s consulate general through his lawyer.”As a Pakistani national, Mr. Malik has asked us to reach out and secure any assistance you may be in a position to advance. This assistance can be in the form of financial, and/or bonds person’s required to secure his release from detention.” Anser Farooq writes on behalf of his client.

Canada Border Services Agency arrested Malik, 33, on March 9 following an undercover investigation amid government accusations that he supports the Islamic State and planned to attack the U.S. consulate and other financial district buildings.

The permanent resident of Canada remains in detention in expectation the government will move to declare him inadmissible and deport him — a process that could take months — rather than prosecute him.

Malik, who is incarcerated in jail in Lindsay, Ont., is slated for another detention review before the Immigration and Refugee Board via videolink on April 14.
