More Muslim faked Islamophobia “crime.” It’s a cottage industry. What is the downside for Muslims falsifying hate crimes? There isn’t any. They are lauded and heralded by the world as poor grief-stricken martyrs. They raise hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent kickstarter campaigns. They smear good and decent infidels and when the jig is up, they say, never mind.
In this case, it’s even worse: Nimra Amjad “first made headlines when she reported being the victim of racist threats ahead of the election.” She was trying to use victimhood to win the election. Luckily, she lost anyway. Then not only did she refuse to cooperate with police about the “hate crime” that had supposedly been committed against her — she couldn’t cooperate with them, because she had made the whole thing up — but now it comes out that she isn’t even a Canadian citizen, and thus wasn’t eligible to run in the first place.
Amjad should face criminal prosecution for all this lying and attempting to manipulate the Canadian police and voters. But she almost certainly won’t. Not in Justin Trudeau’s Canada.
“Updated: Failed school trustee candidate who claimed to be victim of racist death threats charged under Election Act,” by Meghan Grant, CBC News, January 30, 2018 (thanks to Kathy):
A Calgary school board trustee candidate who made headlines when she reported being the victim of racist threats has been charged under the Local Authorities Election Act following an investigation.
Nimra Amjad, 32, has been charged with signing a candidate’s acceptance form that contains a false statement and making a false statement for a purpose related to an election.
Police believe she was not eligible to run for office when she unsuccessfully ran last fall as a Ward 3 and 4 school trustee candidate.
The seat on the Calgary Board of Education was won by Althea Adams.
The anti-corruption unit began investigating Amjad on Oct. 30, 2017, after a member of the public reported Amjad was not a Canadian citizen and therefore not eligible to run.
“It is alleged that the candidate filed both a notice of intent to run and a nomination acceptance form, swearing or affirming she had read the eligibility requirements and was legally eligible to run,” according to police.
It is a crime for a non-citizen to file either of those documents.
Det. Jeff MacQueen said the charges are rare, which is why the investigation took quite a while.
“I don’t think that it’s something that happens on a regular basis, but it is concerning,” MacQueen told reporters Tuesday afternoon.
“It does not appear that she is a Canadian citizen.”…
Amjad first made headlines when she reported being the victim of racist threats ahead of the election.
Two days before the election, CBC News reported the hate crimes unit had dropped its investigation after Amjad became unco-operative [sic] and the man she had accused said not only did he not do it, but he had dated Amjad.
An email chain between Amjad and the detective provided to CBC News depicts a frustrated investigator attempting to get a statement out of an uncooperative Amjad.
“I note that you have utilized the media in regard to this incident,” wrote Const. Craig Collins. “This investigation is reaching Day 6, and you have not provided any formal statement to the police, despite numerous attempts by the police to obtain your statement.”
In an interview with CBC News, Amjad changed her story numerous times.
She initially denied ever meeting or knowing Shawn Street, but by the end of an hour-long conversation she confirmed she’d met Street online and had gone on several dates with him….
