Video evidence sought to help with man's bail hearing

Yussuf Abdulka Ali allegedly held up the Main St. 7-11 on Nov. 25

Yussuf Abdulka Ali has been remanded back into custody until Dec. 5 so that video evidence can be presented for a possible bail hearing.

Ali, 37, is accused of robbery and two breaches of probation after allegedly holding up the 7-Eleven on Nov. 25 while allegedly using a hammer to steal merchandise and money.

A Somali interpreter appeared by phone in Moose Jaw provincial court recently so Ali could better understand the proceedings.

Legal Aid lawyer Merv Shaw explained that the Crown had asked the police to provide the security video from the 7-Eleven, which he believed would help clear up what actually happened compared to what the police report says.

Moose Jaw provincial court next meets on Dec. 4.
