This is a copy of the email I sent to numerous organizations and news media throughout Ontario. Attached to the email is a nasty email (one of many) the family and friends of the victim have had to endure for months. We want a stop to it. Please email any one of those media links in order to publicize the atrocities that are being committed by Maryam Torabipour, her family, and the York Regional Police.
To all attached,
I am a dear friend of Arash Elijah Bakhtaryani. I knew him for over 15
years and he was a loving and dear man. He was a father of a lovely
child whom he loved dearly. In January 2011 he was gunned down, shot six
times in the chest, while he was leaving a party.
Two people were charged for his murder after a Canadian Wide warrant and
search was conducted:
During the "search" for the killer, Det.Sgt Larry Wilson and Det. Corsi
of the York Regional Police were extremely vocal and present when the
cameras were around. However, once the arrest occurred these two
officers disappeared completely. After the arrest not one member of the
Homicide Squad had the courtesy of calling any member of the Bakhtaryani
family to update them on the case.Not one member of the Newmarket Crown
Attorney's Office contacted any member of the Bakhtaryani family to
update them on the case. No one from Chief Eric Jolliffe's office
returned calls. Both Det.Sgt. Wilson and Det. Corsi ignored the family
completely. We had to find out online that Maryam Torabipour was
released on bail despite the fact that she is involved with numerous
"associates" of Mohand Mohamed. Both the Crown's Office and the Homicide
squad never had the courtesy, at any time, to contact any member of the
Bakhtaryani family to update them or caution them of the proceedings nor
were we cautioned that a co-accused to first degree murder was released.
On the flip side, both I and the family have had to withstand a barrage
of taunting and harassment from Maryam Torabipour and her family for 7
months. These threats, harassment and ridiculous claims online state
that "Arash was a drug dealer" or that "he deserved what he got". In
fact we have received numerous Facebook messages threatening to remove
any reference to Maryam Torabipour and Mohand Mohamed. When we forward
them to the York Regional Police and the Toronto Police we receive only
silence in return.
Yet, when the family emails us they brag and seem to gloat about their
"connection" with the York Regional Police, the Toronto Police and the
Crown's Office. In fact we have received these slanderous and filthy
emails that have been sent in the last week as a BCC attachment.
One of the most disturbing aspects of all of this is that Maryam
Toraipour, the co-accused in the murder, has sent out numerous emails to
various female friends of Mr.Bakhtaryani claiming that she can get
"anyone arrested at any time" and that York and Toronto police officers
are their "sponsors". In one ridiculous and outrageous email Maryam
Torabipur claims that both her surety's- Fariba Maleki and Fatemah
Maleki- were out of the country and Mary was left unattended and that
the police and Crown knew about this but "don't care" because she is
The questions I have, on behalf of Mr.Bakhtaryani's family and friends
1) If it is true that for a period of time Maryam Torabipour was left
unattended in Ontario because both of her surety's were in "Bahamas
enjoying their summer" why isn't there an investigation into this?
2) Why does a person charged with Accessory to Murder and with
affiliations to various unsavory charters brag that she has "sponsors"
in the York Regional Police. The "sponsors" they name are Detective
Gentili and Detective Charlebois. An internet search will quickly show
that these two officers are clearly involved in unscrupulous and
embarrassing events in the past. What is their connection to Maryam
3) A surety is a person whom overseas the person out on bail and to
prevent any future crime. If what Maryam Torabipur states in her various
emails and the receipts sent by a "[email protected]" are true
then who was watching Maryam Torabipour and what is being done to
investigate this breach? Who is watching the Bakhtaryani family in order
to ensure their safety?
4) There seems to be an onerous amount of work into charges that Maryam
Toraipour brags about laying against various people whom she claims are
"harassing her". Why is this? How much work has been done to protect and
ensure the safety of the Bakhtaryani family?
5) What exactly is going on in York Region and Toronto with the police
when a constant stream of online threats and emails goes unabated for 7
months and the family is at its' worse bravado yet. What is next?
Another shooting? Another member of the Bakhtaryani family is targeted?
Or will one of his friends be targeted for murder?
I am writing this email to all to outline the frustration we have felt
in this investigation. Once the media went away we did not hear from
neither the Newmarket Crown Attorney nor the Homicide Squad of York
Region police. Neither Det.Sgt. Larry Wilson nor Det. Corsi had the
courtesy to pick up the phone and tell the Bakhtaryanis that one of the
individuals charged was released on bail. No phone calls were returned.
No one from the Chief's office returned calls. What we received was
silence from everyone except the person and family charged. From them we
received a constant barrage of insults, slander and vicious lies.
Arash Bakhtaryani was NOT a drug dealer nor was he a criminal. He was
good man, a good father and a good friend. He was MURDERED by two
criminals. The Bakhtaryani family has been treated as the criminals but
we are the victims. We were first victimized by the murderers. Then we
were victimized by the York Regional Police. We are sick of these
emails. We are sick of Maryam Torabipour. And we are SICK of the clear
connection that various members of the York Regional Police.
Arash had many friends whom loved him and will never forget. You can see
Any media who wants the full story please email me. We will grant
written and audio testament to the lack of care and compassion the York
Regional Police has demonstrated towards us. We were treated like the
criminals while the criminals are treated like the "victims".
One such email is attached below (Maryam Torabipour is a current
employee of Royal Bank Canada as well as her mother Fariba Maleki-Raei):
