Click here to sign and share our petition for Crown counsel appeal and inquiry into case.
April 6, 2018, the Supreme Court of British Columbia found the accused in our sexual assault case guilty for 4 out of 6 counts. After this decision he filed a Section 11(b) Charter Application claiming his rights to a timely trial was breached.
June 10, 2019, the accused was granted his application by the Supreme Court of British Columbia and the proceedings have been stayed. This means the charges have been dropped, he will not be sentenced, have no criminal record and will not be on the National Sex Offender Registry. My sisters and I along with are very disappointed. Crown counsel has 30 days as of June 10, 2019 to appeal this disappointing decision. Many of you have asked what you can do to support us Pooni sisters.
Together we can create change in our culture, communities and criminal justice system.
