00:00:00 | 00:00:00::Projekktor V1.3.09 (Updated) A Toronto judge has postponed until next week a case that could lead to the release of a video that allegedly shows embattled mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine. Mohammed Khattak, on the far right in the photo above, is one of three alleged gang members arrested in a gun and drugs investigation back in June called Project Traveller. He’s facing drug-trafficking charges. Khattak’s lawyers were in court today seeking the release of two videos seized by police. But the case has been adjourned until Tuesday, when the judge might view the video in private. The lawyers previously said the mayor was welcome to join them in their application to get access to those videos. However Ford’s lawyer is instead negotiating with police for the mayor to get a private viewing of the videos — one of which allegedly shows him smoking crack cocaine.Khattak’s lawyer Nathan Gorham: “We feel the crown was very diligent in going and looking into the video herself and advising us what she could. She said very clearly today that Muhammad Khattak is not on the video, and is not heard on the video, and that in itself is a giant relief to him because hopefully when it’s reported now there will be some distance between him and the video.”
