Borys Law argues jurisdiction in terrorism bail case

On April 12, 2019, Borys Law appeared before Justice Masse to respond to the federal and provincial Crowns’ applications for a new bail hearing for a youth charged with terrorism offences.

The youth was released to the care of two responsible persons on April 3rd, 2019, under section 31 of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The Crowns subsequently requested a new bail hearing under section 33(1) of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Justice Masse will make his decision on jurisdiction on April 23rd, 2019.
