WINNIPEG – A Winnipeg man accused of sending letter bombs in the mail may have a new lawyer.
Guido Amsel, who faces five counts of attempted murder, fired his council last month, saying he had lost confidence in his lawyer, Martin Glazer.
On Thursday, Amsel briefly appeared in court with lawyer Saheel Zaman. Zaman told the court he’s been asked to take on the case.
However, he said there was an undisclosed issue that still needed to be worked out.
The case is set to return to court on October 7th, but both Zaman and the Crown expect more time will be needed before a trial.
Amsel was arrested last year after letter bombs were sent to Amsel’s former wife and two Winnipeg law firms.
