Murderous Shafias rightfully fail in appeal of four convictions

TORONTO – It’s enraging that the three Shafia killers who so rejected Canadian values have wasted Canadian taxpayers’ money in a Canadian court to fight their appeal.

And yet how remarkably satisfying it is that the Ontario Court of Appeal has so unanimously rejected the trio’s lying attempts to escape their just punishment for the horrific honour killings of their own kin.

Despite their claims, it was not cultural stereotyping that convicted Mohammad Shafia, wife Tooba Yahya, and precious first-born son Hamed of murdering three teenage sisters and their “aunt.” Nor was there any mix-up about Hamed’s age — he was an adult at the time, not a youth, and was rightly tried as such.
