Erwin Braich, One Of World's Wealthiest Indians, Sues Canadian Government Agencies

Erwin Singh Braich, Canadian Billionaire, Files Lawsuit Against Public Prosecution Service of Canada and Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Damages may exceed $17 billion dollars.

NEW YORK, Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Erwin Singh Braich, 57, a NRI Canadian businessman and philanthropist, known as North America's first Sikh Billionaire, filed a lawsuit in Vancouver, British Columbia, against the Public Prosecution Service of Canada, Crown Counsel Gerry Sair, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Constable Wendy Saint-Onge on Friday, October, 12, 2012.

The lawsuit (No. S-127164, Vancouver Registry, Supreme Court of British Columbia) alleges misconduct, gross negligence and a pattern of not acting in good faith on the part of the Defendants. Braich alleges that he was and is being kept from regular business and/or unfettered activities due to the threat of Warrants for his arrest. He further alleges that the same Warrant or duplicitous Warrants, which have not been legitimate, are likely keeping him from traveling to required destinations.

This is not the first time that Braich alleges that the process has been horribly abused by the Crown and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Both of these organizations settled out of court with Plaintiff Braich, in a different litigation, in Seattle in 2007 (Seattle's Western District of Washington Court, Case no. CV7 00177CMP).

Erwin Singh Braich is the son of Herman Singh Braich (1911- 1976), a successful businessman and forest industry pioneer who immigrated from Punjab, India, to Canada in 1927 and passed away in 1976. After his untimely death, his son, Erwin Singh Braich, at age twenty, left his studies at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, to assume control of his father's businesses. In the subsequent years, he built his family businesses into a multi-million dollar conglomerate, further expanding what his father had begun. He accomplished all of this while juggling his many duties as the eldest son in a family of nine, along with his role as husband, and father of two children. As a successful businessman, it is said that Erwin Singh Braich was also a quiet philanthropist giving back to his community.

"According to estimates of Trusts that Braich controls, the net aggregate value puts him at being the second richest person in Canada and makes him one the top three wealthiest Indians in the world today, along with Mukesh Ambani  (Reliance Group) and Lakshmi Mittal (ArcelorMittal) . But much like Ratan Tata who himself in a personal capacity does not show up on any billionaires lists in the world and utilizes Trusts, Braich also conducts his business activities through various Trusts," stated lawyer Jamshed Mistry who is a member of the Canadian Bar Association and is Senior Counsel on the Central Government Panel for Advocates of the High Court of India.

Mr. Mistry, is an accomplished lawyer and has the 2nd most Judicial Appointments in the Mumbai High Court, he is the President of the Entertainment Lawyers Association in India and along with many high profile celebrity clients he has represented The Reserve Bank of India and Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking. Mistry is also very well known for his social activism and spends much of his time working for social causes, particularly the rights of the disabled as he is on the sub-committee of the Planning Commission which is reviewing the legislation for disabled persons in India.

Recently Mistry spent two weeks in Vancouver, Canada on interrelated matters, and joined Mr. Satinder Dhillon's international legal team as co-counsel with Mr. Mark Stephens from the United Kingdom, (Wikilieaks founder, Julian Assange's, former lawyer), and two of the best constitutional lawyers from Canada, Mr. Daniel Santoro and Mr. Nicolas Roleau - with the latter having taught at the top law school in India. The subjects taught by Mr. Roleau included Political and Legal Philosophy, International Development, Rule of Law, Democracy and Comparative Constitutional Law.

"The whole process has to be scrutinized and reviewed very carefully in its entirety in this situation, and the legal team that has been assembled will leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of justice and the truth despite the threats that have been made against me," responded Dhillon when asked why he was mounting such opposition to a simple allegation of posting a blog.

With regards to the current lawsuit before the Canadian Courts, Plaintiff Braich stated that, "I am strongly suggesting that the integrity of our judicial system and due process afforded to Canadians is being literally destroyed by this pattern of activity against me."

"I fully anticipate these and other related issues will be raised in Parliament in the next session of the sitting of the House of Commons. As I have been informed that the process by which this will be brought to the floor is already in motion."
