    Air India bomb maker, Inderjit Singh Reyat, loses appeal on perjury conviction

    has lost his appeal on his perjury conviction. He is the only person convicted in the 1985 Air India bombing.


    VANCOUVER—The B.C. Court of Appeal has upheld a perjury conviction for Air India bomber Inderjit Singh Reyat, who received Canada’s longest perjury sentence.

    Reyat was handed a nine-year prison term for lying repeatedly at the 2003 trial of two men charged with mass murder and conspiracy in the 1985 bombing.

    Reyat was a Crown witness at the trial of Ripudaman Singh Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri, who were acquitted in the biggest case of aviation terrorism before the 9-11 attacks in the U.S.

    Reyat’s testimony was part of a deal that saw him plead guilty to manslaughter in the deaths of 329 people aboard Air India Flight 182 on June 23, 1985.

    He has already served a 10-year sentence for the same-day deaths of two Tokyo baggage handlers who were killed when a bomb-laden suitcase meant for another Air India plane exploded prematurely.

    Until Reyat’s conviction, the longest perjury sentence ever handed down in Canada was six years for a case in Alberta.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
