Terrorist suspect has Wii confiscated, asks to go back to prison

Mohamed Zeki Mahjoub, who had previously worked for Osama bin Laden’s agricultural business, was forced to stay in a Canadian jail due to the suspicion that he was a terrorist. A judge said that Mahjoub was a threat to Canadian security.

Mahjoub, however, was able to leave the jail after 6 1/2 years. Even though he was allowed to go home though, security restrictions were enforced by the Canadian courts. He was only able to leave his home with his wife and stepson only after seeking permission, he could not stay at home alone with his kids, all of his mail was photocopied, and he could not use the Internet. And as most people know, the Wii has Internet capabilities, including an Opera browser. So, Mahjoub’s Wii was confiscated.

Perhaps due to all of the conditions that have been set in place, Mahjoub now wishes to be taken back to prison. Who knows – It might have been losing the Wii to the courts that lead to Mahjoub’s request.
