Says she was warned against testifying publicly by Family Information Liaison Unit
Dec 06, 2017
A woman says she cancelled her public testimony at this week’s national inquiry into murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG) in Thunder Bay after she was told her planned disclosures about people in the city’s legal community could put her life in danger.
The woman was scheduled to testify publicly as a survivor of violence. She says she was drugged and sexually assaulted by someone from the city’s legal community.
The woman said she believes there were two attempts made on her life after she revealed the information to an acquaintance. The woman said she had approached other police agencies outside of Thunder Bay about the incidents, with no results.
