Bail proceedings began for two men charged with being accessories after the fact in the Dec. 6 shooting death of Yazden Ghiasvand Ghiasi.

A phalanx of supporters and bail sureties for Zakaria Dourhnou, 18, and Khaled Wehbe, 19, filled the seats behind the prisoners’ dock in courtroom No. 30 at the Ottawa courthouse yesterday. Wehbe, dressed in a pale blue dress shirt, and Dourhnou, in a white t-shirt, sat quietly, listening to the proceedings. A publication ban was placed on all evidence and arguments given in the hearing.

As the hearing broke for lunch, a young woman left the courtroom in tears but did not stop for comment.

Ghiasi was killed inside a car and his body was dumped on Booth Street.

Witnesses were able to spot the licence plate and call police. Last week, sources told Metro the two men now asking for bail were arrested and charged after police saw someone approach the crime scene car with cleaning materials.
