JUSTICE FOR SOLI CAMPAIGN

The Justice for Soli campaign is seeking justice, and accountability for what happened to Soleiman Faqiri and answers and closure for his family. On December 4, 2016, Soleiman Faqiri was temporarily housed at the Central East Correctional Centre (CECC) in Lindsay, Ontario while awaiting a bed at the Ontario Shores Centres for Mental Health.

Soleiman had been previously diagnosed with schizophrenia and was identified as having urgent mental-health needs by his family and correctional staff. Soleiman was killed under government care on December 15 2016 following an incident with the guards at CECC.
