Atwal had previously attempted to assassinate a politician visiting Canada, and was invited to a state dinner with Justin Trudeau during the disastrous India trip.
Jaspal Atwal, the former extremist and attempted assassin who was invited to a state dinner with Justin Trudeau in India, has been charged with uttering threats.
The incident reportedly took place April 23rd.
Atwal will be in court on May 24th to face the charge of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.
Atwal was previously a member of a Khalistani terrorist group, and attempted to assassinate a visiting Indian politician in B.C. in 1986. He was also charged, but not eventually convicted after an attack on former B.C. Premier Ujjal Dosanjh.
That’s what made Atwal’s invite by a Liberal MP to attend a state dinner in India with Trudeau so controversial. Atwal was photographed with Sophie Trudeau, and the Trudeau government later spread a since-discredited conspiracy theory blaming India for the invite, even after a Liberal MP took responsibility for it.
