Statement of support for the family of Soleiman Faqiri

Bar None (Winnipeg) stands in solidarity with Yusuf Faqiri and the family of Soleiman Faqiri as we demand real justice, accountability, and transparency in response to Soleiman’s brutal murder by police inside the Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay, Ontario on December 15, 2016. We condemn this completely unnecessary tragedy and the institutions that committed it and continue to commit it. Our hearts go out to Soleiman’s family, in your fight against a system built on racism, brutality, lies, misdirection, and secrecy. No family deserves to be treated the way your family has been treated. We stand with you and with all victims of police violence, for real justice and a world without policing.
