Abscond vs Illness

Medical Evidence Exhibit List

Medical Evidence Brief (p 4)

Timeline:  Absconding vs. Illness

In Saskatoon Provincial Court, the Crown Prosecutor Robin Ritter lied to Judge Barry Singer, claiming that no medical evidence existed for scheduling my court sessions to accommodate my physical disability. In that false light, the Court made several serious decisions:

  • Judge Singer threatened me with a bench warrant.
  • I was ill in a nursing home, yet the Court declared that I had ‘absconded.’
  • On that basis, CCC section 544 was used to exclude me from my own Preliminary Inquiry.
  • Impact: when I was absent from court due to illness, my lawyer missed my input to prepare cross-examination questions.
  • The next court dates were still scheduled for a solid block of four full days, a schedule far too gruelling for me. In this way Ritter contrived a Trial in Absentia.
