Toronto man pleads guilty to trying to join ISIS in Syria

A Toronto man has admitted he left Canada to participate in ISIS terrorist activity on the same day day Parliament Hill was attacked by a gunman who murdered Cpl. Nathan Cirillo.

Pamir Hakimzadeh, now 29, flew from Toronto to Amsterdam on Oct. 22, 2014 and then travelled to Istanbul, Turkey the next day, Crown attorney Chris Walsh told Justice John McMahon Friday.

Before his departure, Hakimzadeh had “exhibited increasingly radical Islamic beliefs, speaking in favour of or in defence of ISIS … and had viewed a website providing instructions on how to get into Syria,” Walsh said.
