🚨 TRUDEAU MISLEADS FAMILY MEMBER OF PS752

I know Mehrzad ZAREI.

Trudeau misleads Zarei. He responds to Zarei's forthright question about Canadian criminal investigation giving as a reason why there is no such investigation as: "Because a crime happened in Iran".

CANADIAN LAW PROVIDES jurisdiction to investigate particular and serious offences, 'outside Canada', as they are 'deemed committed in Canada'

FOR EXAMPLE, "Terrorist Activity" Section 83.01(1)(a) Criminal Code - which includes, (ii) civil aviation.

While the aircraft (a Boeing 737-8KV) was registered in Ukraine, Canada has jurisdiction because 55 Canadian citizens were aboard.

THAT SAID, Section (3.75) Criminal Code addresses interpretation and provides jurisdiction if "(a) the act or omission is committed against

AS A FORMER @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP (Ret'd), Criminal Code of Canada «DOES SUPPORT» a Canadian investigation and prosecution of the downing of Flight #PS752. Period.

This Liberal government does NOT want a Canadian criminal investigation. It wants the easier route.

AS A FORMER @rcmpgrcpolice #RCMP(Ret'd), it is my opinion that what is referred to as Canada's 'Forensic Report' [hereafter, 'the Report'] is underwhelming and deeply disappointing. And, I wish that was the extent of it. But, it's not.

IT'S (MUCH) WORSE ...

WHEN ALL IS SAID, the Report has effectively created a road map for the Iranian regime as it enters upcoming state-to-state negotiations.

'Connect-the-Dots' or 'Paint-by-Numbers' would be equally appropriate as descriptors. It reads like an 'Open-Book exam' with acceptable

RISKING SERIOUS UNDERSTATEMENT

The decision by @CommrRCMPGRC has been made in what can only be described as a «CLEAR DISREGARD» for the provisions of the Criminal Code

... AND THERE is none more serious than the innocent lives of 55 Canadian citizens, murdered.

@ps752justice

THIS DECISION, which for appearances, will be (grimly) portrayed as having originated solely with RCMP Commissioner ...

THEN ONE MUST ASK:
What is the likelihood that the Commissioner made a decision « AS CONSEQUENTIAL AS » whether 'to launch or not open a Canadian criminal

investigation' herself (and herself alone)?

TO BE CLEAR, and supposedly without the 'input' [italics] and without any direction from PM @JustinTrudeau (and very probably @BillBlair @DavidLametti @MarcGarneau @OmarAlghabra).

International Airlines Flight 752.

WHEAREAS,the attack upon Flight #PS752 has been ruled as "intentional" and "act of terrorism" in a recent Ontario Superior Court ruling.

AS SUCH, it's the second deadliest terrorist attack against Canadian citizens in Canada's history.

THIS ATROCITY is second only to the bombing of Air India Flight 182 (1985).
