Notorious pimp Reza Moazami loses legal challenge to prison transfer
A notorious Vancouver pimp has lost a legal challenge of a decision by corrections officials to transfer him to a maximum-security prison following an incident in which he allegedly aggressively chased after and confronted a nurse.
The incident involving Reza Moazami occurred on April 25 last year at the Mission Institution, a medium-security prison where he was serving out a 23-year jail term.
A Correctional Service of Canada nurse at the prison alleged that Moazami shouted in her direction while gesturing and pointing at her, and then started aggressively walking toward her.
She walked away and says she told him to back off as she tried to get to a safer environment, but he followed her until he was intercepted by another correctional officer. The nurse felt threatened by Moazami’s conduct.
Moazami claimed that the incident only developed after he had been waiting in line for medication but that the nurse left before she gave him his medication. He denied acting in an aggressive manner or breaking any rules.
