Présumée agression sexuelle à sa résidence: Jean Pascal rencontré par les policiers

MARIE-ÈVE DUMONT @

PUBLIÉ LE: | MISE À JOUR: 

Le boxeur Jean Pascal a été rencontré par les policiers hier après-midi et aucune accusation n’a été déposée contre lui.

Le champion de boxe est toujours considéré comme un témoin important dans le cadre de l’enquête de la présumée agression sexuelle survenue dans sa résidence.

Jean Pascal s’est rendu aux bureaux des enquêteurs à 14 heures avec son avocat. «Il est impossible d’entrer dans les détails de la rencontre pour ne pas nuire à l’enquête, mais l’entretien est complété. Nous n’avons pas prévu de le rencontrer à nouveau pour le moment; tout dépend de l’avancement de l’enquête», explique le porte-parole de la Régie intermunicipale de police Thérèse-De Blainville, Jonathan Germain.

Aucune accusation

Les policiers ont aussi rencontré plusieurs témoins et aucun d’entre eux n’a été identifié comme suspect. Aucune accusation n’a donc été déposée jusqu’à présent. Les enquêteurs poursuivent donc leur travail afin de faire la lumière sur les événements qui se seraient produits dans la nuit de samedi à dimanche à la résidence du boxeur à Lorraine, dans la banlieue nord de Montréal.

Toronto: Teenager dies after being run over by float at Toronto’s Caribbean Carnival

Teenager dies after being run over by float at Toronto’s Caribbean Carnival
By The Canadian Press | The Canadian Press – 29 minutes ago

TORONTO – Toronto police were appealing for information Sunday as they investigated the death of a young man who fell from a parade float at the city’s Caribbean Carnival.

The 18-year-old had been riding on the float Saturday night when he fell and was run over by the vehicle just before 9 p.m..

Police said the young man suffered life-threatening injuries and was rushed to hospital, where he later died.

As part of their investigation, officials were examining a video posted on the Internet which appears to show the immediate aftermath of the incident.

The clip appears to show confusion on the crowded parade route, with the crowd yelling for the float to stop when it slowly starts moving after a brief pause.

“If the video is in fact of the float involved, there’s got to be thousands of people all around that float,” said Sgt. Lawrence Zimmerman.

Shawn Pompey receives free care and medications from his oncologist and drug companies, not taxpayers. He has months to live, but CBSA wants to deport him now.

Shawn Pompey knows his liver cancer is terminal, but he wants to stay in Canada, where an oncologist is providing palliative care for free.
By: Nicholas Keung Immigration reporter, Published on Fri Feb 15 2013

Despite his terminal cancer, Shawn Pompey refused handouts and continued to work at a Toronto window factory until January, when he was slated to be deported to St. Vincent.

Pompey, 42, a failed refugee, has been without health care coverage since June, when Ottawa’s new refugee health cuts kicked in, prohibiting unsuccessful asylum seekers awaiting deportation from accessing care.

Fortunately, his oncologist at Brampton Civic Hospital, Dr. Philip Kuruvilla, has continued to treat him for free and managed to get him free medications for his liver cancer through various pharmaceutical companies’ compassionate drug access programs. Continue reading

He ranted for over a minute, swearing at Justice Julie Thorburn, calling her a devil despite the fact she had acquitted him of attempted murder in October, while convicting him of lesser weapons and breach charges. Continue reading
