Activist Alex Hundert is back in police custody. The Toronto Star quotes his lawyer saying that it's a new charge rather than a violation of his bail conditions but it's not clear what that charge is.
If you're not familiar with this story I did a quick summary of the background here and then posted again a couple of days later to express disbelief at the bail conditions that had been imposed on Hundert. He subsequently appeared in court requesting a review of those conditions and a Crown prosecutor was gracious enough to relent and indicate that Hundert would be allowed to speak to the media. Yes, that was sarcasm. That article quoted his lawyer saying that his client would likely continue to avoid direct contact with the media. You'd almost think that they were paranoid. I can't imagine why.
I'll be interested to find out what this new charge is and you can bet I'll pass it on. It really seems as though the powers that be are toying with this man, just because they can.
