Legal Opinion in Entrapment Case Released
The legal opinion in the John Nuttall entrapment case has been released. The Vancouver Province is reporting that "Late in an undercover RCMP operation, a senior prosecutor advised police to stop paying money to a Surrey couple who have been convicted in the B.C. legislature terrorism case."
A memo written by lead prosecutor Martha Devlin stated “Due to the unique circumstances of the target (no money, no friends, on welfare, somewhat vulnerable), without the assistance of the RCMP, he cannot do a thing." Exactly. Without their help, this crime could NEVER have been committed. She then states “I’d recommend that the police not give the target money ...”
Notice the term target not suspect. This is not a suspect in a crime. It is a mark in a con they targeted. The Vancouver Province goes on to report that "After getting Devlin’s legal advice, police stopped the payments, but although the undercover police stopped giving the couple cash, they continued to pay for groceries, cigarettes and coffee." Then there was the persistent threat: "Mr Big has spent a lot of money on you. You better come up with a plan."
A handwritten note about the case from Devlin had the words “high as a kite” circled on the top of the note. No kidding. That's exactly what we said. In some of the videos of the suspect it was obvious he was high on drugs just talking nonsense. Martha Devlin is very credible. To hear she has been apointed to the bench is a breath of fresh air. Quite a relief from a raging lunatic like Peter Leask. I'm still hearing stories of that clown's idiocy.
This legal opinion ties in with the Overview of the John Nuttall Entrapment case.
