Federal prosecutors argue men found guilty of planning to blow up Via train don't deserve new trial

Federal lawyers are warning the Supreme Court of Canada it would be a miscarriage of justice to grant a new trial to two men accused of plotting to crash a Via Rail train.
     
The pair were found guilty in 2015 of terror-related charges, but last year both men successfully appealed their convictions on the grounds the jury at the trial was improperly constituted.
    
Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser were arrested in April of 2013 for planning to blow up the Maple Leaf, a daily train between New York City and Toronto jointly operated by Via Rail and Amtrak.
