Sam Habib back in Court
Meanwhile back on the ranch, Sam Habib was in Kelowna court on April 12 and 13th. I'm not going to speculate on the reasons since the charges haven't been listed even though I have heard rumours. Right now it just says remand until warrant/return to jurisdiction. Yet it does say some kind of order was made on the 13th.
On a completely unrelated hypothetical situation, I was wondering what would happen if someone was charged with fraud for using fake Oxycontin prescriptions. If they were committing fraud for using fake oxy prescriptions wouldn't they be charged with drug trafficking as well as fraud because that is what people do with fake oxy prescriptions?
Let's hope there isn't another bogus publication ban imposed on Sammy's case like there was on his February 19 2002 case. Publication bans aren't supposed to last that long. They are only supposed to last long enough to give the person the chance for a fair trial. They aren't supposed to continue after the trial is over.
Kinda like when they made a publication ban on the name of the Hells Angel Kerry Ryan Renaud was cooking the crystal meth for. There was a publication ban because John Punko and Ron Lising were still in trial. Yet in that trial it was published that Micheal Plante claimed the meth cook was working for John Punko and Ron Lising. Surely the Crown is allowed to take the Renaud conviction to the Punko trial and use that as further evidence of criminal organization charges. Even if they don't name the criminal organization, it is clear that Renaud was working for Punko and Potsie.
Sammy "Sandy" Habib on the other hand is pretty small time. When the Private Investigator was looking for Sammy's missing SUV's he texted his brother Mike in Calgary and said he was going to kick his brother's ass. Mike texted back and asked which brother. The PI said Sammy. Mike then responded, let me guess, he owes you money too. Interesting to note that the PI claims Sammy swore on the name of the Kingpin crew that he would return the SUVs which he didn't. It's his brother Dale that's the president of the pinhead crew.
Interesting to note that the PI claims he has Mike on tape using the name of the Hells Angels to threaten the PI. Isn't that an interesting association.
Sammy had a DUI charge back in August 31 1996 and subsequent failing to appear and driving while prohibited. I would be interested in finding out what the 2002 matter was that had the publication ban. Surely the temporary ban has expired by now.
Confirmed: Sam Habib and his brother Mike in Calgary have both been charged with a huge oxycontin fraud worth over $3 million.
