Freedom Convoy organizer Tamara Lich has just been released from jail (again) after being held for weeks for supposedly violating her bail conditions.

According to Rebel News’s Sheila Gunn Reid, who has been live tweeting from the courtroom, the judge has ruled that “the alleged breach [of her bail conditions] was not rationally connected to the purpose of the condition” and the likelihood for Lich to re-offend remains low.

As previously reported by The Counter Signal, Lich was re-arrested in Medicine Hat, Alberta, for supposedly breaching her bail conditions by attending an award ceremony in her honour and taking a photo with Tom Mazzaro — even though this happened while lawyers were present.

Following the arrest, her lawyer argued that — as permitted via her bail conditions — that lawyers were present at the award ceremony, making the 3-second interaction with Mazarro permissible. Mazarro also sat at her table, where her lawyers were as well.

This argument held up in court today.

However, there will be no changes in Lich’s strict bail conditions.

As per the bail conditions, “You are not to log on to social media or post any messages on social media. … You are not to allow anyone else to post messages on Social Media on your behalf or indicate your approval for any future protests so long as this release order is in place… You are not to engage in organization or promotion of anti-COVID 19 mandate activities and Freedom Convoy activities … You are not to verbally, or in writing, financially, or by any other means, support anything related to the Freedom Convoy. …”

“The violation of a bail condition can result in a fine, imprisonment, or both.”

Between the two arrests, Lich has collectively spent 48 days in prison and is considered by many to be a political prisoner.
