Yesterday afternoon at 12:55pm March 21,2019, the OPP responded quickly to an eastbound black sports car that had just stolen gas from a Nipigon Esso. Police conducted patrol and observed the vehicle on Highway 11 just north of Windegokan Lake Road.

Further investigation revealed the discovery of over 1/2 pound of Fentanyl. One of the largest seizures in Northern Ontario.

A 19 year old MOHAMAD AL ZARIF, a Syrian refugee was arrested and charged with:

  • Possession of fentanyl for purpose of trafficking.
  • Theft under 5000$.
  • Driving under suspension.

A 21 year old MHD ALI BASHIR ALMANDANI, a Syrian refugee was arrested and charged with:

  • Possession of fentanyl for purpose of trafficking.
  • Theft under 5000$.

ALMANDANI was the alleged passenger in the vehicle

Both men require Arabic interpreters and will make a video appearance later today before Justice of the Peace in Thunder Bay if an interpreter becomes available.

Sources indicate that AL ZARIF speaks no English and ALMANDANI speaks very little English.

The Federal Crown will most likely request these two refugees be detained at the Thunder Bay Jail.

Due to the nature of the charges, it will be a reverse onus situation where the refugees will be required to prove why they should be released.

Both men are Syrian born. But because Canada doesn’t deport foreign criminals to unsafe countries, they will most likely remain in Canada for the rest of their lives.

After Justin Trudeau and the Liberals were elected in 2015, they literally opened the floodgates for Syrian refugees with little to no vetting being done.

Unfortunately, Canadians have been stuck with the bad choices of the Liberals. Several refugees have taken advantage of the generosity of Canadians and committed a variety of crimes. In fact, the Liberals treat refugees better than Canadians.

Inside Edition is working to try obtain more information and photos. This story will be updated as information becomes available.

UPDATE: FRIDAY MARCH 22,2019

In Courtroom 105 at 2:15 this afternoon, Friday March 22,2019 a member of the Inside Edition team was present to witness the court appearance of both men.

Her Worship Justice of the Peace Jennifer Neil is presiding. Federal Crown Ron Poirier and Provincial Crown Sarah Munsch are present. Duty Counsel Aranka Golphy is also here.

THERE ARE EXTREME DIFFICULTIES WITH THE ENTIRE PROCEEDING DUE TO THE REQUIREMENT OF ARABIC INTERPRETER, DAVID ABRAHAM BY TELEPHONE.

The logistics of the entire set up require Her Worship Neil to come off the bench to go sit with the court reporter so everyone can be heard clearly.

A 21 year old MHD ALI BASHIR ALMANDANI is up first. He’s heavier than usual, wearing a red shirt with a strange yellow pattern around the chest and shoulder area. He hears his charges. He has an Islamic style beard a few inches in length.

He tells the court through the interpreter that he is a sick person, possibly has ADHD.

HE TELLS THE COURT THROUGH THE INTERPRETER THAT HE HAS A PHOBIA OF JAIL.

He’s told that he will be held in custody and be transferred to Thunder Bay.

ALMADANI starts to cry a bit and says in English that he was “only a passenger”

Next up is 19 year old MOHAMAD AL ZARIF. He is wearing a blue hoodie AL ZARIF is skinny and smaller with very large ears and very strange dark hair reminiscent of the Flock of Seagulls era of the early 1980’s.

The interpreter has to go to a medical appointment and the court is unable to arraign him on his charges. He will be transported to the Thunder Bay OPP and make a Bail Court video appearance tomorrow.

Big Thanks to our Inside Edition team member for getting this story.

UPDATE: SATURDAY MARCH 23,2019

LARGEST PURPLE FENTANYL SEIZURE IN THE HISTORY OF NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO.

THE STORY THAT LOCAL TAXPAYER SUBSIDIZED MEDIA REFUSES TO REPORT AND JUSTIN TRUDEAU DOESN’T WANT TOLD.

The Inside Edition has learned from sources that at 10am this morning that 19 year old MOHAMAD AL ZARIF, a Syrian refugee appeared via video from the Thunder Bay OPP station in weekend Bail Courtroom 104.

Her Worship, Justice of the Peace Zelda Kitchekeesic was presiding. Federal Crown Ron Poirier and Provincial Crown Derrick Silvestro were present along with Duty Counsel Lianne Roberge.

Making a special appearance in the courtroom is an Arabic interpreter from the Ministry of the Attorney General. Her name is Hind Saq. She flew to Thunder Bay last evening and will remain over the weekend and make another appearance on Monday in court.

AL ZARIF is formally arraigned on his charges. Duty Counsel Roberge spends a lengthy time speaking privately via telephone with the accused and the interpreter present.

Federal Crown Ron Poirier is opposed to the release of AL ZARIF on all three grounds.

Primary grounds: the accused is not a Canadian citizen. He’s a Syrian refugee. There is a good chance he will not return to court.

Secondary grounds: if released, there is a strong likelihood the accused will reoffend. He must have strong criminal connections in order to possess this amount of Fentanyl.

Tertiary grounds: this is a significant amount of Fentanyl. The largest seizure in the history of Northwestern Ontario. There is also an indication of a gun component. Greenstone OPP allegedly found a firearm ammunition magazine with the duo. The public would be outraged if this person were released and bring the justice system into disrepute.

The accused tries to tell his story to the court through the interpreter “I was only with a friend”

Her Worship Kitchekeesic cut him off. This is not the time to discuss the alleged incident.

Federal Crown Ron Poirier told the court that a special bail hearing would be required and it would require more than 2 hours.

All Special Bail Hearings need to be scheduled through Senior Regional Justice of the Peace Bernard Caron.

As these are special circumstances, a request is made to amend the detention order to have AL ZARIF appear in person in court on Monday March 25,2019 so he can speak directly with a lawyer and the interpreter present.

AL ZARIF is being transported to the already overcrowded Thunder Bay Jail.
Big thanks to our Inside Edition source for getting the rest of this story.

Local media is still refusing to run this story about these 2 Syrian Alleged Fentanyl Traffickers.

SYRIAN REFUGEE FENTANYL TRAFFICKER UPDATE

Friday March 29,2019

Appearing handcuffed in Courtroom 103 are the two Syrian refugees who were nabbed by the Greenstone OPP with an alleged record amount of Fentanyl after stealing gasoline in Nipigon.

A 19 year old MOHAMAD AL ZARIF, a Syrian refugee was arrested and charged with:

  • Possession of fentanyl for purpose of trafficking.
  • Theft under 5000$.

AL ZARIF is being helped by local lawyer Heather Salter and has not been officially retained yet.

A 21 year old MHD AL BASHIR ALMANDANI, a Syrian refugee was arrested and charged with:

  • Possession of fentanyl for purpose of trafficking.
  • Theft under 5000$.

ALMANDANI has received Legal Aid and has acquired the services of local lawyer Gilbert Labine.

Jailhouse sources indicate that both refugees are not happy with their present accommodations at the Thunder Bay Jail.

Federal Crown Ron Poirier intends to show cause why both Syrians should be detained in jail.

No bail hearing is set. But if a hearing is set, it will require at least an entire day to conduct.

Both men are returned to the Thunder Bay Jail.

A judicial pretrial is scheduled for April 29,2019 for both men.

Local taxpayer subsidized media continues to give this story no coverage. It’s like they’re pretending it didn’t happen.

Big thanks to all contributing sources on this story. Inside Edition is actively seeking pictures of both men.

If anyone has any pictures of these 2 Syrians, please message them to the page. Thank you.
