Canada: Toronto lawyer offering $50,000 reward to help find gunman who shot him

September 20, 2017

Randall Barrs

A Toronto lawyer shot outside his Yorkville office a year ago is offering a $50,000 reward to help police nab the man who ordered the gunman to open fire on him.

Randall Barrs said he is putting up the reward money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man who compelled the alleged gunman to stalk and shoot him outside his office.

“I’m doing this for all participants in the adversarial criminal justice system we have — criminal defence lawyers, Crowns, judges and police officers,” said Barrs, who was shot twice in the leg by a suspect.

“There’s someone out there who probably thinks he’s gotten away with this a year later. I’m hoping this reward money kick-starts this investigation,” said Barrs.

Career criminal Grayson Delong, 51, was under surveillance by undercover Halton officers on Sept. 20, 2016 from the time he made a 9 a.m. court appearance in Brampton on burglary charges until he drove to downtown Toronto that afternoon.

Delong allegedly ran up behind Barrs and opened fire shortly after 3 p.m. Seconds later, Delong was shot and wounded by a Halton officer while attempting to flee, the SIU alleged.

Delong had stolen licence plates on his vehicle and was wearing a disguise — a blonde wig and a construction worker’s outfit, according to Barrs.

Delong faces charges of aggravated assault and other offences.

Burma/Nobel Prize: Nobel laureate can learn from a taxi driver

September 21, 2017

An assassin shot him in the head at close range as he was about to leave Yangon airport in his family car. He fell to the ground, bleeding.

This was how U Ko Ni, a lawyer and member of the ruling National League for Democracy in Myanmar, was killed on January 29 this year.

“During the shooting, he was holding his grandchild,” said a witness.

Ko Ni was also a prominent human rights campaigner and legal adviser to Aung San Suu Kyi. But he needs to be remembered for many more reasons.

The man was credited with finding the legal and constitutional loopholes that allowed the formation of the State Counsellor’s role and enabled Suu Kyi to become the de facto head of government last year.

Born near Katha in Saigang Division in 1953, Ko Ni was the son of a Muslim man and a Burmese woman. In the early 1900s, his father came to Burma from India through his work with the British-Indian army.

Now Myanmar, Burma back then was considered part of the British-Indian colonial empire. His mother was a Buddhist, and daughter of a Muslim man and a Buddhist woman.

Being a son of an immigrant and a Muslim is not a very good combination in Myanmar.
