Bulgarian terrorist had Canadian passport: Queen's University expert


Queen’s University national security expert Christian Leuprecht is available to talk about the Bulgarian government announcing that one of the terrorists involved in an attack last July on a bus filled with Israeli tourists entered the country with a Canadian passport.

Dr. Leuprecht says many questions still need to be answered before we can fully understand the national security implications.

“Just because we have a Canadian passport doesn’t mean we have a Canadian terrorist. The passport can be fake, stolen or borrowed. So let’s see the evidence and be cautious about what inferences we draw from this news,” says Dr. Leuprecht, a fellow at the Centre for International and Defence Policy at Queen’s University.

Please note that Dr. Leuprecht likes to be identified in the media as a national security expert from both Queen’s University and Royal Military College.
