By | June 26, 2019

The lawyers of the former owners of a Winnipeg cafe accused of staging a hate crime are scheduled to appear in court today.

Winnipeg police believe on the eve of Passover, an assault on a woman working at the Bermax Caffe and Bistro on Corydon Avenue was fake and anti-Semitic vandalism was staged.

Court documents show the family may have been facing financial difficulties.

Oxana, Alexander and Maxim Berent are each charged with public mischief.
