Freedom Convoy head Tamara Lich has been re-arrested in Medicine Hat, Alta. Her attorneys have confirmed violating her bail conditions.

Lich was taken into control Monday night, according to Keith Wilson, who represents Lich on her non-criminal cases, including a suit.

Wilson, who said with Lich after her detention, says she hopes to be hauled back to Ottawa in the next week.

Eric Granger, one of Lich’s criminal defense counselors, also confirmed Lich’s detention.

Granger says he has no reason to think his client has done anything bad and is “looking to understand more at this stage.”

Freedom Convoy head Tamara Lich has been re-arrested in Medicine Hat, Alta. Her attorneys have confirmed violating her bail conditions

“Based on everything we learned, she’s been diligently complying with all of her bail conditions, as was reported by the judge at her recent bail check.

While it’s not clear which bail conditions she is charged with breaching, there is belief on social media that Lich might be in legal problem over a Facebook picture that shows her beside a fellow convoy organizer from who she was ordered to stay out from by a judge. 

Canada-wide warrant

Lich faces accusations of misconduct, counseling mischief, obstructing police, counseling to plug police, counseling pressure, and intimidation by stopping and blocking one or more highways for her part as one of the organizers of the protest that closed down much of downtown Ottawa before this year.

RCMP approved Lich was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for violating her release order but did not have further details as the detention falls within the jurisdiction of the Medicine Hat Police Service (MHPS).
