Adil Charkaoui will be allowed to resume teaching his courses at Montreal’s Collège de Maisonneuve CEGEP.
On his Facebook page, Charkaoui wrote in French, "Good news...the suspension of the contractual agreement with Collège de Maisonneuve has been lifted." His post also said that classes will resume Sunday.
Charkaoui rented four classrooms at the school to teach Arabic and the Qur'an, but after reports surfaced that at least one of his students was suspected of joining jihadists in Syria, school officials suspended the contract .

There is no proof Charkaoui committed any wrongdoing.
The college has initiated an investigation to determine whether or not Charkaoui was promoting inappropriate values.
It says that management reserves the right now to have an observer in the classroom to ensure that the college's code of conduct is respected.
Charkaoui was arrested on a national security certificate in 2003, but years later that certificate was declared null and void.
