The first person sentenced under Canada's anti-terrorism law will appeal his conviction, his lawyer said Thursday. Momin Khawaja, a 29-year-old Canadian of Pakistani descent, was sentenced last month to 10 1/2 years for participating in a thwarted 2004 plan to attack London's Ministry of Sound nightclub, a shopping center and electrical and gas facilities in Britain. Prosecutors painted Khawaja as an extremist who, along with conspirators in Britain, was determined to sow havoc. His lawyer Lawrence Greenspon on Thursday asked the Ontario Court of Appeal to overturn a finding that his client aided the group of British extremists.
