Lawyers slam Chris Alexander for commenting on Nasira Fazli murder case still before courts

‘There used to be a presumption of innocence in this country but I don’t know what happened to it’

By Colin Perkel, The Canadian Press Posted: Nov 06, 2014 5:22 PM ET Last Updated: Nov 06, 2014 5:22 PM ET

Criminal defence lawyers are dismayed that Immigration Minister Chris Alexander publicly branded a man charged with killing his wife a murderer before his trial.

Alexander brought up the case of Nasira Fazli this week as he talked publicly about the need for legislation to crack down on so-called “honour” killings and polygamy among immigrants.

“Not much more than one year ago, she was killed — 48 stab wounds — by her husband, Feraidon Mohammad Ibrahem, who had been in this country only for a few months, sponsored by her,” Alexander told a news conference at a women’s centre in west-end Toronto.

“While what he did is clearly a crime, among the gravest crimes that can be committed and that he is facing the full consequences of the law for murder, this was also a barbaric cultural practice in that he felt that he had been dishonoured by her ability to be independent.”

Alexander went on to say that “that kind of behaviour by any immigrant, by any Canadian, is unacceptable.”

Fazli, 31, of Ajax, Ont., was found stabbed to death in July 2013.

Ibrahem’s preliminary inquiry wrapped up last month and he has yet to stand trial for first-degree murder. Continue reading

VANCOUVER: Sketch of sex assault and stabbing suspect released

Vancouver sex assault and stabbing: suspect sketch released

CBC News Posted: Oct 28, 2014 8:03 PM PT Last Updated: Oct 29, 2014 7:44 AM PT

Vancouver police have released a composite sketch of the man who allegedly dragged a 35-year-old woman into a car in an East Vancouver alley, then stabbed and sexually assaulted her.

The attack took place at around midnight on Saturday, when the woman was walking in the east lane of Joyce Street near Archimedes Street, a few blocks south of the Joyce-Collingwood SkyTrain station.

She was approached by a man in an older-model dark bluish-green minivan that has tinted side windows and a sliding door on the passenger side.

Police say the man grabbed her and dragged her into the minivan, drove to an area near East 45th Avenue and Rupert Street, and then stabbed her and assaulted her.

“The victim managed to scream and fight off her attacker, but not before receiving serious injuries,” said Vancouver Police Department​ Const. Brian Montague.

The woman was released from hospital on Monday, police said.

VPD investigators believe the man responsible for the attack is in his mid-to-late-40s, possibly Middle Eastern, with an olive skin tone and a heavy, solid build. Interviews with the victim and other witnesses put him at six feet to six feet two inches tall and weighing 250 pounds.

Police say the suspect spoke with an accent and is believed to be balding, with a short, shaved fringe of black hair around the sides and back of his head.

Officers say they have received some tips from the public, but believe others must have seen or heard something in either of those locationsand are asking for those witnesses — including at least two drivers who went by East 45th Avenue near Rupert Street at around the time of the assault — to come forward.

Police are asking anyone who may know or have seen anything to contact the Vancouver Sex Crimes Unit at 604-717-0601.

CALGARY: Homicide victim identified as store owner Maqsood Ahmed

Update: Calgary homicide victim identified as store owner Maqsood Ahmed

Victim stabbed while carrying bag of money, not far from police headquarters

BY , CALGARY SUN

FIRST POSTED: | UPDATED: 

Homicide detectives are investigating the stabbing death of a store owner near police headquarters in northeast Calgary Wednesday night.

About 9:45 p.m., emergency crews were called to the 4700 block of Westwinds Dr. N.E. for a report of an assault with a weapon.

The man, whom friends have identified as Maqsood Ahmed, owner of the Calgary Produce Market, was walking with another person when the attack happened, said Det. David Fakas with Calgary police.

Ahmed was carrying a bag of money, though the reason was not immediately known and would be part of the police investigation, said Fakas.

“The older man was stabbed,” Fakas said, adding the victim was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition.

“He was talking and breathing at the scene … once he got to the hospital he succumbed to his injuries.”

Two unknown male suspects fled in a dark vehicle, said Fakas.

It’s believed they may have taken the weapon with them as investigators were not able to locate it at the scene.

“Homicide (unit) is activated and engaged, they’ll be heading the investigation,” said Fakas.

“We’re in the process of checking CCTV footage in the area.”

It was too early to say whether the incident was targeted or random, he said.

When emergency crews rushed through the front door that winter night—Jan. 21, 2014—they found white tiles covered in blood and two people clinging to life. It was a gruesome, chaotic scene, even for a seasoned paramedic. Whoever swung the blade, again and again, had already fled.

Anita Summan, who owned the home in Brampton, Ont., was lying at the bottom of the main wooden staircase, alert but fading. Summan’s daughter, in her bedroom when the assailant pounced, had sprinted to her side. “She was still alive,” says Sonali Summan, 22. “I was in a hysterical shock, trying to figure out what was going on.” Continue reading
