Alleged terrorist Rehab Dughmosh insisted during a court appearance Wednesday that she does not want a trial.
However, Justice Michael Dambrot bluntly told the 32-year-old Scarborough woman that despite her comments, she will be tried on several terrorism-related charges.
“Down with Canada,” said Dughmosh. “Add the charge of insulting the judiciary.”
Dambrot stopped the woman — who was speaking through her Arabic interpreter — from making any further comments. He set Oct. 27 as a date for a judicial pre-trial conference.
The Syrian-born Dughmosh is accused of swinging a golf club and wielding a knife at employees and customers at a Scarborough Canadian Tire, while wearing a headband with ISIS markings and shrieking “Allahu Akbar!”
She has shouted her support for the Islamic State during previous court appearances, stating twice she wanted to plead guilty to charges before switching her plea to not guilty. She has proclaimed her disdain for the Canadian judicial system.
“Hey, you infidels, I do not worship what you worship,” she told court Wednesday.
An earlier psychiatric assessment found that she’s mentally fit to stand trial.
She represents herself and will do so at the pre-trial conference with Crown attorney Bradley Reitz and a judge. Dughmosh has consistently declined the services of a lawyer.
Dughmosh was indicted on serious terrorism-related charges, including attempting to travel to Syria in 2016 to join ISIS and four counts of attempted murder. None of the charges have been proven in court.
