Accused in Anthony Smith slaying has bail altered
A man accused in the death of Anthony Smith will be allowed to leave the province under new bail conditions agreed to by lawyers on Tuesday.
Smith gained notoriety after a photo surfaced that showed him with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and two other men.
Hanad Mohamed, 23, will be allowed to leave Ontario while he awaits trial on charges of accessory after the fact to manslaughter, accessory to committing aggravated assault and accessory to discharging a firearm.
He was originally charged with first-degree murder but those charges were downgraded in the summer. His case is due back before the court on Nov. 21.
Mohamed's lawyers are waiting on more disclosure materials from the Crown. They said evidence is still being analyzed.
A photo emerged in May, after Smith's death, that appeared to show Ford with his arm around a man believed to be Smith.
The image circulated along with reports that someone was trying to sell an alleged video appearing to show Ford smoking crack cocaine. The mayor has denied both using crack cocaine and the video's existence.
