Maybe Paid Defense Witnesses Too

The first thing we do is hang all the lawyers...
The defence’s star witness, Dr. Alexander Westphal is set to testify today at the trial of the man who killed 10 people in Toronto’s van attack.

He is expected to say Alek Minassian is not criminally responsible for his actions on April 23, 2018, due to autism spectrum disorder.

Last week, Westphal refused to testify if court didn’t give in to his demands to seal his videotaped interviews with Minassian and play the clips to court in secret.

Just hours before the horrific encounter, Nowaczek-Said was arrested by Toronto Police under the Mental Health Act for disturbing behaviour but was sprung from St. Joseph’s Hospital, where it was allegedly determined that he was fine to be released back onto the streets.
