The attorney general is seeking to revoke the bail of the Toronto police officer convicted of attempted murder in the fatal shooting of Sammy Yatim on board a TTC streetcar.
A notice of application was filed at the Ontario Court of Appeal on Thursday, one day after James Forcillo was arrested and charged with breaching his bail conditions. He remains in custody.
“We are aware that the Crown has applied for revocation based on the alleged breach,” defence lawyer Michael Lacy wrote in an email.
“A date has not yet been set to deal with that application. We are in the process of reviewing the information file and the allegation, which will inform our next step.”
Lacy would not confirm whether a bail hearing on the alleged breach scheduled for Friday would go ahead in a North York courthouse.
The attorney general is asking the Appeal Court to revoke the judicial interim release order made Sept. 28 by Justice David Doherty. No date has been scheduled for that hearing.
