R. v. Pawlowski


Artur Pawlowski is well known to supporters of The Democracy Fund as a Christian pastor who has been repeatedly jailed and punished by the courts because of COVID-19 restrictions. One of the allegations against him is that he failed to comply with a public health order after attending a public protest on December 20, 2021.

Update: Our lawyers will be contesting Artur Pawlowski’s charges in a three-day trial starting on June 6, 2022. They have also filed a Notice of Application and Constitutional Issue arguing that the public order infringes on Pawlowski’s Charter rights to freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and freedom of peaceful assembly.
