CHARGED? POLICE WANT TO TALK? DON'T MAKE A STATEMENT! CALL or TEXT (306) 502-5987
Thiong came to Canada from Ethiopia as a refugee in 2003 and completed high school in Windsor, Ont., said defence lawyer Linh Pham. He then moved to Brooks, Alta., for work, before eventually moving to Moose Jaw, where he worked as a DJ.
“There is the potential for him to make money in that area (based on his skills),” added Pham.
A joint submission between the Crown and defence saw the 35-year-old from Regina get the probation and conditional discharge, with defence attorney Linh Pham thanking the Crown prosecutor “for exercising restraint.”
Linh Pham, a lawyer with Merchant Law Group, said he has had many clients who deal with civil forfeiture applications.
Pham says those changes are concerning.
"[Policing for profit] is a strong term, but you're inducing the police to seize people's assets so that it's profitable for them, so they can use that money for their own needs," Pham said. "I just don't think that's appropriate."
Noel Harder thought he was legally allowed to have a gun he’s banned from possessing and needed it for protection from imminent danger, according to his lawyer Linh Pham.
“Mr. Harder was under the significant imminent threat of individuals trying to hurt him and his family,” Pham said outside of court.
“It is not necessarily a dangerous purpose until a situation arises as such,” Pham said
