MONTREAL - The activist daughter of a separatist Quebec MNA was among 50 students granted bail Friday for allegedly participating in violence during the five-month student strike.
The group is accused of ransacking a local community college, a blockade at a major Montreal bridge and rampages at the University of Montreal and the offices of former education minister Line Beauchamp.
Among the suspects who appeared Friday was Yalda Machouf Khadir, daughter of fringe-party politician Amir Khadir.
The young woman was arrested at her father's home in June for her alleged role in two ransackings. She was arrested at the same time as suspects charged in smoke-bomb attacks that shut down the Montreal subway system in May.
Machouf Khadir is also accused of attacking QMI Agency photographer Chantal Poirier following a court appearance earlier this year.
She faces charges of mischief, breaking and entering, assault against a peace officer and intimidation.
All 50 suspects granted bail on Friday were ordered to stay away from schools and government buildings.
They're scheduled to return to court on Oct. 19.
