Tanzirul Alam, 29, a refugee man from Alberta says he’s the victim after receiving a 12 year prison sentence for sexual assaults on minors.
The man was convicted of 17 offences involving the girls, ages 14 and 15, including sexual assault, sexual contact with a person under 16, luring, making and transmitting child pornography and obstruction.
In a nearly 20-minute statement to the court, Alam, 29, insisted his difficult upbringing in Bangladesh, which included being tortured by Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists, contributed to his offences in Canada.
He said the Canadian government does a poor job in educating newcomers like him to the country’s legal realities and predicted more refugees would be committing similar offences.
“I believe, in a way, I’m a victim of a system that is not perfect,” said Alam, who apologized to his victims, one of whom looked on.
“My intention was never to hurt you … I’m not heartless.”
Park said Alam “lies to serve his own purposes but has some remorse as shown in his statement.”
