Pastor says he’s a political prisoner
CANADA & WORLD
An Alberta pastor who, along with his brother, was found guilty of contempt after deliberately violating COVID-19 health orders has told a judge that he is a political prisoner who is being persecuted by Alberta Health Services. Artur Pawlowski said during a sevenminute statement at his sentencing hearing on Tuesday that he and his brother, Dawid, have done nothing wrong. “I am here before this court as a political prisoner of conscience,” he said before Justice Adam Germain.
