West Vancouver woman wins settlement after her assets were seized despite being acquitted
CBC is reporting that "A West Vancouver woman who was charged and subsequently acquitted of human trafficking, and then went on to sue the RCMP, has reached a settlement and received an apology." In 2015 CBC reported that "Mumtaz Ladha, a West Vancouver woman who made international headlines when she was charged and subsequently acquitted of human trafficking, has launched a lawsuit against the police and the province for seizing her assets."
This woman was charged with a crime then acquitted but the police seized her multi-million dollar West Vancouver home anyways after she was acquitted. This ties in directly with my post about how the BC Gang Task Force has become compromised just like the EPS. They are no longer concerned with stopping drug trafficking. They are only concerned with seizing the proceeds of crime just like in Freeway Ricky's documentary.
