A decision is expected today as to whether or not a man convicted of plotting to derail a VIA Rail passenger train is fit to be sentenced.
Chiheb Esseghaier’s is set to learn his fate and it could be altered by Dr. Lisa Ramshaw who claims Esseghaier is mentally ill due to his psychotic beliefs.
The crown will also apply for a fitness assessment if the judge doesn’t order one.
The doctor who did a psychiatric assessment on Esseghaier also testified that she believes he’s schizophrenic.
Esseghaier and Raeed Jasser were found guilty of a terror-related conspiracy to commit murder, which carries a sentence of up to life in prison.
