Supreme Court will not hear Shafia’s appeal in honour killings

The Supreme Court of Canada will not hear the case of a man convicted of murdering his three sisters and another woman.

Hamed Shafia had asked the top court for leave to appeal, arguing new evidence showing he was a youth at the time of the deaths should not have been dismissed.

On Friday, the SCC announced it will not hear the appeal, as usual giving no reason for the decision.
