Did Refugee Ibrahim Ali Get Away With Murdering 13-Year Old Marrisa Shen?
Regarding Syrian refugee intake policy, Justin Trudeau stated “I will be personally responsible for harm brought to any Canadian citizens.”
In an interview with Justin Trudeau in September, 2018, our prime minister issued the following statement: "I trust our justice system to apply consequences to this."
Mr. Trudeau was responding to a question from a Maclean's magazine journalist regarding the murder of 13-year old Marrisa Shen of Burnaby, British Columbia.
Over four years have passed since this ghastly murder. No one knows whether or not consequences have resulted for accused child-killer Ibrahim Ali.
The details of his life are typically sketchy. We do know that Ibrahim Ali is a refugee from Syria, likely brought to Canada via Justin Trudeau's refugee intake program of 2015.
Commenting on the refugee program at the time, Trudeau issued the following statement:
"Tonight they step off the plane as refugees. But they walk out of this terminal as permanent residents of Canada, with social insurance numbers, with health cards, and with an opportunity to become full Canadians."
After controversy swelled in the wake of the policy decision, on October 16, 2016, Trudeau defended his government's action of importing Syrian refugees to Canada:
In a statement to media Trudeau was quoted as saying "I will be personally responsible for harm brought to any Canadian citizens."
It never happened. Nor has media spoken of details regarding trials taking place at the Vancouver Law Courts.
"The trial for Syrian refugee Ibrahim Ali who is accused in the 2017 murder of Burnaby teen Marrisa Shen has been adjourned until sometime in 2021."
Four years from the date of the murder, and the public are recipients of nothing more than vague references to trial dates. Marrisa Shen would be a 17-year old high school student today. By the time any finality came to the murder trial-- which will likely never occur-- Ms. Shen could have graduated from university.
This case has disappeared into thin air. Cultural Action Party wonder what became of it? Has a pending trial been further postponed? Could a trial have already taken place, while media are instructed not to reveal the outcome?
In terms of speculation, CAP wouldn't be surprised for a micro-second if the latter is the case. The trial of Ibrahim Ali has moved forward not unlike molasses rolls uphill.
How convenient for refugee advocates. How serendipitous for Immigration Canada. Most excellent it is for Immigration Minister at the time of the murder, Liberal MP Ahmed Hussen-- himself a refugee from Somalia.
Fortuitous it is for Justin Trudeau-- founder of the righteous and virtuous Syrian refugee program. Canadians have mostly forget about this murder case. Marrisa Shen's family have remained as silent as media. What a giant coincidence this is.
One outcome which cannot be brushed aside: the lawyers for Ibrahim Ali won their case. Consider the degree of public outrage that would follow an acquittal. Likely it is that the preference of government, media, and law enforcement is to maintain their "silence is golden" mantra.
After all, today we live in a post-modern society-- a nation-state in which Middle Eastern refugees take priority over the lives of 13-year old Canadian girls.
