Woman charged with threatening former premier in court next month

Pavla Janeckova is charged with uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm

It will be another month until the courts will learn more about the woman who allegedly threatened former premier Christy Clark and Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson.

Pavla Janeckova is charged with uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and was scheduled to have a second appearance in Kelowna Law Courts Monday morning but the matter was put off until Aug. 22.

The threats are alleged to have occurred on or about April 30, and Janeckova has yet to make an appearance.

A Special Prosecutor has been appointed to avoid any potential for real or perceived improper influence in the administration of justice in light of the nature of the allegations and the identity of the subjects of the threats.
