With the confinement, which is extended, in the case of individuals recalcitrant, who do not submit to the rules, or who attempt to use the crisis as an excuse to get out of a bad situation, continue to multiply. Here are a few examples of the last week.
Out of jail refused… Because it does not comply with the containment
Accused of illegal possession of a firearm, Ahmad Kadoura has participated in a music video for the rapper AZ.
A young Montrealer accused of illegal possession of a firearm hoped to use the health crisis to get out of jail… then he made himself stop while he violated the rules of containment.
“Even in freedom, Ahmad Kadoura did not meet the basic precautions. It is, therefore, somewhat ironic to invoke the increased risk of transmission in detention, ” said judge Dennis Galiatsatos in a recent decision, the palais de justice of Montreal.
Kadoura, 18 years old, was arrested on 7 April for a case of extortion, while he was in the car with a co-accused who does not live at the same address.
The day before, the police saw him go to two addresses other than his own, in addition to make up a friend in his vehicle.
“This confirms its attitude of indifference and carelessness in regard to the orders from authorities,” said the magistrate, saying with doubt that Kadoura to abide by its conditions if he is released.
Especially that the accused likes to show off his 9 mm pistol. In two rap videos posted online in recent weeks, we see him handle a weapon like the detail close to the one that was seized during his arrest.
A co-accused is also visible on the video.
“The gun culture, derived from the american model and which decimates the city of Toronto for the past few years, is now at our door,” recalled the judge blaming Kadoura to “glorify” this mode of life, showing himself to be armed, on the internet.
Thus, even if the risk of contracting the COVID-19 is higher in prison, and even if any new inmate is placed 14 days in quarantine, the judge has ordered that Kadoura remains behind bars pending his trial.
