Inderjit Singh Reyat is still a liar.
The BC Court of Appeal has upheld the Air India bomb maker's perjury conviction, for lying at the trial of two men charged in connection with the worst act of terrorism in Canadian history.
BC's highest court rejected Reyat's argument, the trial judge was wrong to tell jurors they only had to find he lied “once”in order to convict him.
Reyat was handed a nine-year sentence for repeatedly lying at the trial, the longest perjury sentence ever handed down.
His lawyers can still take the matter all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.
