Last March, Tanvir Singh violently attacked a girl on leaving school, an act that cannot be punished because the accused suffers from mental disorders.

It was a panel of experts from the Philippe-Pinel National Institute of Forensic Psychiatry who came to this conclusion.

Which solution?

In response to this outcome, the crown requested that Mr. Singh be given the designation of high-risk defendant. This designation may "have several implications with respect to the discharge of the accused from the psychiatric hospital", but it also offers "judicial control, since the Court can control certain aspects which are usually devolved to the review board “, specified Me Annabelle Sheppard, prosecutor of the Crown.

This verdict does not necessarily mean that the accused will be released, and indications could see him being forced to be detained in hospital. He would then undergo strict control of his outings in particular.
