Primary complainant testifies in hearing in Toronto officers' arrest of black teens

  Primary complainant testifies in hearing in Toronto officers' arrest of black teens A case involving four teenagers who say they were assaulted by two Toronto police officers in 2011 is the subject of a police disciplinary hearing this week, and the lawyer for the complainants says racism and racial profiling will be part of the story he plans to tell the tribunal."They are all black. They were teenagers. They were 15. This was in a Toronto Community Housing complex," lawyer Jeff Carolin said.

His lawyer, Amedeo DiCarlo, said last month that Baratov was considering bypassing his extradition hearing in an effort to speed up the legal process.

After several months planning to fight the extradition , his lawyer Amedeo DiCarlo said in June that Baratov was considering bypassing his extradition hearing in an effort to speed up the legal process.

The hearing for Karim Baratov, 22, was scheduled for next month.

Baratov was arrested in Hamilton in March under the Extradition Act after U.S. authorities indicted him and three others — two of them allegedly officers of Russia's Federal Security Service — for computer hacking, economic espionage and other crimes.

After several months planning to fight the extradition, his lawyer Amedeo DiCarlo said in June that Baratov was considering bypassing his extradition hearing in an effort to speed up the legal process.

DiCarlo has previously said Baratov is getting bored behind bars — where he's been since his arrest in March — and that he doesn't want his client to spend more time than necessary in custody if it looks like he could be exonerated or spared incarceration in the U.S.

He has stressed that waiving the extradition hearing does not mean admitting guilt.
