TORONTO, Feb. 23, 2016 /CNW/ - The fact that five of eight Uber drivers charged by Toronto Police last March have still not received disclosure of the evidence raises serious doubts about whether the Police and/or the Prosecutor's office are seriously intent on prosecuting these charges, says Harvey Spiegel, Q.C. legal counsel for the Toronto Taxi Alliance.
On January 22nd, Gerald Chan, the drivers' lawyer informed the court that five drivers had not yet received disclosure documents from Toronto prosecutors. The prosecution gave no reasonable explanation for the failure. The court agreed this was an inordinately long period of time to provide disclosure in a case like this.
The case against the Uber drivers charged is scheduled to be in court on Feb. 24th at 9 a.m. at "N" Court (Old City Hall, 3rd floor).
