Shehroze Chaudhry is a Canadian man on suspicion of lying about having joined Islamic State terrorist group and committing execution-style killings.
Starting in 2016, Chaudhry made social media posts talking about his role with Islamic State and also gave several media interviews. He claimed he travelled to Syria in 2016 to join the Islamic State terrorist group and committed acts of terrorism.
RCMP spokeswoman Sergeant Lucie Lapointe confirmed Chaudhry was the Abu Huzayfah featured in the award-winning New York Times podcast Caliphate.
He claimed to have executed two people as a member of Islamic State in Syria, but doubts were raised about his story, which contradicted what he told CBC News.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation said he was interviewed by CBC News under what he said was his nom de guerre Abu Huzaifa al-Kanadi.
Chaudhry will appear in an Ontario court on November 16. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.
