One of the men accused in the VIA Rail terror plot wants a lawyer who will ensure he is judged by the “holy book” — not the Criminal Code.

Dressed in orange and donning glasses, a bearded Chiheb Esseghaier appeared in court via video yesterday morning.

The court heard that his Legal Aid application is still pending and a lawyer refused to represent Esseghaier because of his conditions.

“It was not me who refused,” Esseghaier said. “The last lawyer, he wrote and signed a piece of paper (that) he cannot change the reference of my judgement from Criminal Code to holy Qur’an.”“I don’t want (a) book written by humans,” he said in court on May 23.
Well folks, we here at the Perspective Research Department, along with the Naked News staff, think his demand is best answered in a speech given by Russian Premier Vladimir Putin a few days ago…………………………………!

On June 1st, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:
“In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honourable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a standing ovation for five minutes.
