He has a lawyer

The latest from Iqaluit.

Father Eric Dejaeger omi has retained Iqaluit lawyer Andrew Mahar.  Mahar defended Pingotuk Kolola, the Nunavut man convicted of first-degree murder last year in the 2007 shooting of off-duty RCMP Const. Douglas Scott.

There was a bail hearing yesterday.   I was unable to reach anyone to firm up exactly what transpired yesterday, however, in talking to other sources in the area I was told that an application for bail was either denied or the hearing was adjourned and rescheduled  to  09 February 2011.  Since Dejaeger has just retained a lawyer, and since another bail hearing is set, I think it was probably the latter – a defence request to adjourn to allow Mahar to familiarize himself with the file.

The hearing 08 February is listed as “show cause” which means it’s a bail hearing.  The Crown has to “show cause” why the defendant should not be released on bail.

And, that’s the latest. 

Enough for now,

Sylvia
