OTTAWA, ON – Ottawa convoy organizer Pat King is facing two new charges, the day after his bail review hearing came to an abrupt and unexpected halt Wednesday when his lawyer’s computer appeared to be hacked.
The details of the hacking were protected by a publication ban ordered by Justice Graeme Mew, but he lifted the order Thursday morning, April 14 2022, after hearing arguments from a lawyer representing several media outlets.
The rest of the evidence and testimony from court Wednesday and Thursday still cannot be shared.
On Thursday, the Crown announced it would lay new charges against King; perjury and obstruction of justice. Those charges are expected to be laid in the afternoon.
