法轮功被判支付温哥华市政府诉讼费(中英)
   2009-05-11   凯风网   作者:Charlie Smith 李芬(编译)

  加拿大温哥华在线资讯网站Straight.com5月10日报道,对法轮功练习者自2001年起在中国驻温哥华总领事馆外示威驻扎一案,加拿大卑诗省最高法院法官Sunni Stromberg-Stein判决法轮功示威者支付温哥华市政府诉讼费用。

 

  法院今年1月裁定,示威者树立在格兰维尔街(Granville)3300区总领事馆外的建筑物违反了一项城市条例,同时温哥华市政府赢得针对张苏(音,Sue Zhang)和其他匿名被告的法庭禁令。

 

  在5月6日的裁决中,法官对1月温哥华市政府寻求法庭禁令案的诉讼费用进行了裁定。

 

  对于案件所涉及的诉讼费,法轮功抗议者争辩说,他们在行使宪法中言论自由的权利,因此不应负担这些费用。

 

  判决并没有透露抗议者要支付多少法律费用,包括市政府的。

 

  在此案中,Tom Zworski律师代表原告市政府,乔·阿尔维和安世立代表被告法轮功抗议者。

City of Vancouver wins legal costs against Falun Gong protesters

 

Straight.com By: Charlie Smith

 

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sunni Stromberg-Stein has issued a ruling against Falun Gong protesters, who started a protest camp in 2001 outside China's Vancouver consulate.

In a May 6 decision, the judge awarded costs to the City of Vancouver after it had obtained an injunction earlier this year against Sue Zhang and unnamed defendants earlier this year. 

The court ruled last January that the protesters had violated a city bylaw by erecting a structure outside the consulate in the 3300 block of Granville Street.

In the recent case concerning legal expenses, the Falun Gong protesters argued that they were exercising their constitutional right to freedom of expression, and as such, they should be entited to their costs.

Stromberg-Stein, however, sided with the city. The judgement did not reveal how much the protesters will have to pay to cover the city's legal costs.

City staff lawyer Tom Zworski argued the case on behalf of the petitioners. Joe Arvay and Clive Ansley represented the Falun Gong protesters, who were the respondents.
