No honour in 'cold-blooded, shameless' murder of Shafia girls
by Christie Blatchford
It was, as the shy prosecutor Gerard Laarhuis said outside the lovely old Frontenac County courthouse, "a good day for Canadian justice."
And so it was: Mohammad Shafia, Tooba Mohammad Yahya and Hamed Mohammad Shafia, respectively the Afghan parents and brother of three teenage girls and the woman they loved like a mother, had just been convicted of four counts each of first-degree murder moments earlier.
"This verdict sends a very clear message about our Canadian values and the core principles in a free and democratic society that all Canadians enjoy, and even visitors to Canada enjoy," Laarhuis said.
