Pastor Artur Pawlowski was denied bail in a decision that left Artur, his family and his legal counsel Sarah Miller shocked.
While we may have to wait a day or two for the written ruling to be released, and at the time you’ll be able to read Judge Erin Olsen’s words for yourself, you surely won’t be surprised to learn that she hardly seemed impartial in her ruling. In fact, she not only denied Artur bail, she also unprovokedly stated that the crown had a very strong case against Artur when the trial commences.
Bail is usually denied when someone poses a threat to society, which might make sense in the case of a gangster or drug dealer, but all Pastor Artur ever did was preach, feed the homeless and open his church.
That, in COVID-19 Alberta, is apparently a threat to society.
Immediately following the court’s decision, I joined the Pawlowski family at their home to discuss the ongoing persecution of Pastor Artur Pawlowski.
Marzena, Artur’s wife, Nathaniel, his son, and Dawid, his brother, all shared their thoughts and feelings about the struggles over these last two years, and indeed the last two decades. The family is heartbroken and disgusted, but they are far from done standing up for freedom and for Pastor Artur.
