Sentence hearing begins for van attackers in Toronto

The families of survivors and victims of the deadly van attack in Toronto will make a statement in court today as the case is being heard.

Eight women and two men busy renting a van on April 23, 2018, when a 25-year-old man was infamous, angry at a woman who didn’t sleep with him, and became radical in the intestines of the Internet. He died by deliberately driving on the sidewalk. ..

More than three years later, another woman who was injured that day died.

Alec Minasian’s decision hearing can last for several days, with dozens of people affected by the attack.

He was found guilty of 10 single murders and 16 attempted murders last year.

First-class murders have been sentenced to life imprisonment incapable of applying for parole for 25 years.

Some victims and their families say they are preparing for a few emotional days in court, but feel strong.

It will be their first opportunity to meet the murderer directly after a judge-only trial and verdict at a video conference during a pandemic.

Betty Forsyth, Ji Hun Kim, So He Chung, Geraldine Brady, Chul Min Kang, Anne Marie D’Amico, Munir Najjar, Dorothy Sewell, Andrea Bradden, Beutis Renuka Amarasingha and Amaresh Tesfamariam died as a result of the attack.
