Toronto Police Station-Const. Jeffrey Northlap was remembered by the 52 divisions on Saturday — the first anniversary of his death.

Northrup, 55, and his partner are allegedly attacked by a 31-year-old veteran in a vehicle driven by Thornhill accountant Umar Zameer. I was investigating a stab wound in an underground parking lot.

Three Brumpton fathers died shortly after being taken to the hospital, and Zamir was charged with a single murder.

"The loss of Detective Constable Jeffrey North Lap is still affecting our service, our city, and our police community," 52 Divison tweeted Saturday. "Today, we mourn the on-duty death of DC North Lap, who died on July 2, 2021. 52 Division #HeroesInLife #NeverForgotten #WeRemember."

Defendant is 2021 9 He was released on May, but the reason remains a mystery as the ban on publishing the case was lifted.

An Ontario judge ruled earlier this year that he would not lift the ban on the grounds of releasing Zamir.

"In this country, we don't bring criminal cases to trial in the media. We'll try them in court," wrote Judge Jill Copeland.

"It is unreasonable to suggest that the defendant is guilty before being tried, or to grant the release without notifying himself by reading the reason why the speaker was granted the release. Comments by public figures suggesting that there are are irresponsible. "

Mayor John Tory and Prime Minister Doug Ford when Zameer was released on September 22, 2021 with a $ 335,000 bailout. Public figures, including, were shocked and indignant at the judge's decision.

Ford finally did not understand that "the person responsible for this vicious crime is now being rescued" and deleted the tweet that he said was completely unacceptable.

Zameer's lawyer has banned regular publication of bailout hearings so that the general public can better understand why a person accused of a single murder was granted release. I asked the court to lift it.

However, Copeland said it would hamper the right to a fair trial two years from now.
