OTTAWA, (LifeSiteNews) – The prosecutor in the Tamara Lich case is a committed Trudeau supporter.
Official Canadian political contribution financial records show that Moiz Karimjee, the Crown prosecutor for the case against jailed Freedom Convoy leader Tamara Lich, is a long-time Liberal Party of Canada donor.
His latest contribution amount of $250 to the Liberal Party was made in September 2019.
The largest donation to the Liberal Party was a $1,500 contribution made in March 2017. The lowest donation Karimjee made was $11.62 in 2014.
Records show that Karimjee has made 29 different contributions to the Liberal Party, all of them while the party was led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Karimjee did make two contributions totaling $800 to the Conservative Party of Canada; however, these were in 2010.
Karimjee’s apparent closeness to Trudeau’s Liberals does not just stop at financial donations. In December of 2017, he was listed as an attendee at a Liberal Party of Canada fundraising event.
Freedom Convoy leader Tamara Lich was denied bail last Friday by Ottawa Justice of the Peace Paul Harris.
“Your detention is necessary to maintain confidence in the administration of justice,” Harris told Lich.
Lich will remain jailed until her trial for allegedly breaching the terms of her bail. She is scheduled to appear in court again on July 14 via teleconference.She was arrested more than a week ago for a second time.
Lich was in Toronto in June to accept the annual George Jonas Freedom Award from the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF).
At the award ceremony, a photo of “key players” from the Freedom Convoy, including Lich and Tom Marazzo, was taken.
Karimjee said that the photo of Lich and Marazzo together is a reason to keep her jailed.
The prosecutor had wanted to send Lich back to jail for an alleged bail violation for months because Lich agreed to accept the Freedom Award from the JCCF.
In May, he threatened Justice Kevin Phillips with a mistrial application should he not agree to Karimjee’s demands. Phillips ruled, however, that Lich would not go back to jail and could travel to Toronto to accept the JCCF’s award.
Lich was first arrested on February 17, two days after Trudeau enacted the Emergencies Act (EA), which he claimed was needed to deal with the Freedom Convoy protesters demanding an end to all COVID mandates.
Trudeau revoked the EA on February 23.
Lich and fellow Freedom Convoy organizer Chris Barber were charged with multiple offenses such as mischief and obstructing police for taking part in, and organizing, the Freedom Convoy.
