(CNS): The seven men and women serving on the jury in the crown’s case against Hassan Syed for stealing more than half a million dollars when he was the UCCI president returned a unanimous guilty verdict on all twelve counts at 1pm Thursday. After a trial that lasted over five weeks and several days of deliberation, the foreman confirmed the dozen guilty verdicts as Syed, dressed in a smart navy suit, stood calmly in the dock listening to the jury’s decision.
A bail hearing was set for 2pm and Syed was confined to the parameters of the court until then. Sentencing is not expected to be dealt with until April.
Check back to CNS for more details on this case later.
