|00:00||The man you see on your screen is Fred Hadj Messaoud, 39 years old.|
|00:04||He’s the suspect who allegedly sprayed gasoline on his ex-wife|
|00:07||and set her on fire in the Saint-Sauveur district last Friday.|
|00:10||He appeared this morning at the Victoria park police station|
|00:14||by telephone for attempted murder and aggravated assault.|
|00:18||He was arrested Saturday morning in Drummondville. This afternoon he headed to the Quebec detention|
|00:23||centre where he will stay until his return to court. He may face life imprisonment in this case.|
|00:30||Considering that gasoline was used to set someone on fire,|
|00:33||it seems certain that he will be charged with attempted murder.|
|00:36||In this area the maximum sentence is life in very severe|
|00:41||aggravated circumstances. This will be considered, because|
|00:47||if it is done it would be done in the context of domestic violence,|
|00:51||and the courts will take that into account by imposing|
|00:54||a more severe sentence. —The 39-year-old man was a taxi driver.|
|00:57||He worked as a member of Taxi Co-op Quebec.|
|01:00||The establishment’s management reacted to the news|
|01:03||this afternoon by stating that a person with a criminal record|
|01:06||cannot be a taxi driver. A conviction would mean suspension.|
|01:10||Fred Hadj Messaoud should be back in court tomorrow|
|01:13||at the Quebec City courthouse. Pascal Robitaille for TVA news in Quebec City.
