The wrongful conviction of Glen Assoun is fascinating in the way that any story involving murder, a serial killer, and a miscarriage of justice is bound to be. You can all read about it here: halifaxexaminer.ca/featured/dead-…

But it’s not history, it involves right here and now.
An officer compiled evidence that Assoun was innocent. It seems someone in the RCMP waited for him to go on vacation, then systematically deleted all his digital and paper files exonerating Assoun.
RCMP leadership investigated and seem to know who did it but have concluded it was an accident.

This isn’t remotely credible. Every day the RCMP doesn’t take action on this they’re continuing a cover-up.
Here’s @Tim_Bousquet’s story on what happened: halifaxexaminer.ca/featured/dave-…

City and provincial officials have said next to nothing.
@Tim_Bousquet This should be a federal scandal too since the Trudeau government had Justice Department lawyers conclude Assoun was wrongfully convicted but did nothing for 18 months.

But awkwardly the person who sat on the findings was was Jody Wilson-Raybould.
@Tim_Bousquet In fairness, Justice Minister David Lametti ordered a new trial within weeks of taking over after Wilson-Raybold acrimoniously split from the Liberals.

The Crown presented no evidence against him and he was finally a free man.
@Tim_Bousquet Jody Wilson-Raybould’s justification for keeping a clearly innocent man legally convicted of murder for 18 months (more than that, if she’d stayed in her job) was that she was waiting on another report:

This isn’t even getting into law enforcement’s fight to keep evidence secret at every turn.

It’s a series of outrages. For a fuller breakdown, you should listen to Tim on this episode of Canadaland. canadalandshow.com/podcast/288-wr…
