Criminal defence lawyer calls Tamara Lich detainment ‘egregious abuse of process’

One of the Freedom Convoy organizers Tamara Lich will be remaining in an Ottawa jail until at least Friday. The judge, Paul Harris, stated he had a lot of notes and needed time to consider if Lich could be released. Lich was arrested for allegedly breaching her bail conditions. She was seen in a video clip with Tom Marazzo after she accepted a freedom award in Toronto. Part of her bail conditions stipulates that she cannot communicate with Marazzo, who was also part of the Freedom Convoy, except in the presence of legal counsel. Ari Goldkind is a criminal defence lawyer in Toronto and he thinks the Crown is trying to make an example of Tamara Lich. The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which is representing Tamara Lich says she has spent a total of 27 days in jail despite having no criminal history.
