Sarah Miller of JSS Barristers, who has been defending Pastor Artur Pawlowski since his first arrest at no cost to him thanks to your donations at SaveArtur.com, is a brilliant and hardworking lawyer.
Moreover, Sarah has a heart for underdogs and for the marginalized. That is exactly what Pastor Artur has become as a result of the ongoing political and judicial campaign against him.
Artur is very fortunate to have Sarah in his corner as he endures the legal fight of his life after being arrested for a fourth time, this time on a warrant for several seemingly spurious charges, among them, disturbing the peace and trespassing.
It is shocking to think that opening your church and feeding the homeless, who, by the way, don’t stop needing help just because COVID-19 shows up, could garner the ire of authorities to so dramatic an extent.
The way that Pastor Artur is being treated just doesn’t make sense.
The warrants for the latest arrest stem from an incident in December where Artur, who has a medical mask exemption, was attempting to gather his mail from a Canada Post office but was refused accommodation.
Artur himself contacted police to help him retrieve his mail and ultimately filed a human rights complaint over the incident and moved on with his life. Or he thought he had until last week’s arrest.
Artur has attended numerous public events, his address is known to police, his lawyer Sarah is known to police, but they never enacted the warrant or contacted Pastor Artur. Then, last week he was arrested, seemingly arbitrarily, while making his way home from a protest in Leduc, Alberta.
It just doesn’t add up.
